|My Three Season Porch|
That's my dog, Sadie in the picture. Hi, Sadie!
There is nothing fancy about the porch, but I love it. I adore the wicker furniture. It speaks to me. It says, come sit a while. It says, come rest your weary feet. I love that the windows can be removed easily and replaced with screens. From June through September there are screens in place of the windows and I love the gentle breezes that blow through the windows. A couple of the windows have little wind chimes that make a soothing tinkle when the wind blows just right. Most of all, I love when it rains and I can sit of the porch and listen as the rain falls. That reminds me of my Nana and the times I would sit with her on her screened porch and listen to the rain. There's a lot to love about my porch. But I digress.
This post is really about my wild goose chase and my need for a garden stool. Are you wondering just what a garden stool is?
Can't you see one of these beauties on my porch? I know, it's perfect! It is made of ceramic and is about 16 1/2 inches high. It can be used as a seat, or a side table, or a plant stand. The piercings are varied depending on the manufacturer and the colors are varied. I've seen a few. My favorite coffee shop uses garden stools as seats in its computer corner. A local furniture store has them displayed in various ways throughout its rooms.
So, what's the problem you ask? Why am I on a wild goose chase? Well, friends it is the thrill of the hunt that has me going. One of my Pinterest pals, Between Naps on the Porch, posted a picture of her stool on her board, Beat This Price. She snagged her garden stool at a Home Goods store for $59.99. It looks lovely on her porch. There began my wild goose chase. $59.99 is an awesome price so off I went to each of the three Home Goods stores I know of within a fifty mile radius.
I bet you've guessed by now that I have failed in my quest. Yes, the wild goose chase has been for naught. I found one garden stool in one of the HG stores, but it was a putrid mustard color, and that will not do. I need a white one, or a green one...for $59.99.
So, I'm asking all of my southern New England readers to help me in my wild goose chase. If you spot these elusive garden stools in a HG store for $59.99, or less, please let me know. In the meantime I'll be resting my weary feet a bit out on my porch.
