New Patio Pillows And Cushion

I hope you are all having a wonderful day! It is just beautiful here today...sunny and in the 70's now, but will be in the 80's later on today. My kind of weather!! I am really busy cleaning and getting the yard ready for company tomorrow night. Some of my family from Kentucky are coming in and we are going to have a big cookout here. I'm excited, but have so much to do! The house is so dirty and the yard desperately needs mowed! We have had rain and ballgames so the yard work has taken a back seat. Pretty soon the neighbors are going to complain! =0 I mentioned that I was having a cushion and some pillows made for the patio and I went and picked them up last night! You might remember the striped ones, I had the cushion and pillows made to coordinate. It really adds a pop of color to the chairs and bench...Every chair needs a pillow! lol...




Color! Color! Color! This patio is definitely not lacking in that department! lol...
Love the cushion with the pillows...


Kevin asked me what the purpose of these pillows were...lol. I know they are probably a little on the small side...but I was conserving materal and money! Besides, the chairs just needed a small pop of color...hehe. They do look a little funny from this angle...


My flowers are really starting to fill out. I brought them under the covered patio the other night when we got all of that bad weather. Sure glad I did...


One more thing...I have been having trouble commenting on some of your blogs and I know some of you are having trouble too. Kevin said it has something to do with google, but he's going to look at it tonight. I hope it gets fixed! Also, all of my followers have vanished! I am so upset! I hope they come back. Blogger must be having problems again. I know alot of you have this problem too...

Update: Sheila at Notesongs said she could not comment on my blog either...well poo! If you would like to e-mail me please feel free. Kristenscreations@hotmail.com

Have a great weekend!

I've been having trouble too but only on my work computer. I saw someone say to uncheck the box when you sign it to google that says "keep signed in". I tried it & I haven't had any other problems.

Beautiful, beautiful patio, Kristen! I always remember each spring you put together such an inviting place for family and friends to gather. Looks great!
Thanks for liking my tablescapes. :) The bee plate came from TJM about 2 yrs. ago. I'm thinking I may have two, but possibly just one. Aren't they darling? The nice thing about setting up little vignettes for our friends to enjoy is I only need one bee plate!

No followers showing up at my blog either. :(

Beautiful patio, Kristen !! Your flowers are gorgeous, too ... I can imagine many summer evenings spent out here enjoying yummies and cocktails ... perhaps a s'more or two, as well !! And, I just noticed that my "followers" aren't showing up either. Hope it is fixed soon !! Have a wonderful holiday. xo

Beautiful patio and pillows! We are building a deck and patio this Summer and can't wait to decorate! Have a great weekend!

Kristen this looks fantastic!

What is up with blogger? I'm not sure if this comment will work. It's one of the few that I've tried. They seem to be having some serious blogger glitches.

Enjoy the weekend!
