Pink is the New Retro

I found a cute patio set on craigslist yesterday and went to pick it up this afternoon. I got four chairs, a table, and a lounge chair for $45.  Everything needs a good scrubbing but otherwise it's in very good condition.  I'll need chair pads for everything but I'm hoping I can find something reasonable at Garden Ridge or Old Time Pottery.   The mauve color is one of the good features for me, although Mr. Grumbbump thinks the furniture is trash.  He really doesn't like it, but that doesn't bother me nor did it stop me from getting this to our house today.   The color of this furniture is very, very close to the tile in our master bathroom.  I don't think that really means anything but I thought I would mention it.

It's retro!

Just a little elbow grease and some cute chair pads and we will  be in business!
I went to Michael's last night with every intent of getting some new yarn and I left empty-handed.  I was disappointed with the overall feeling of the store but it's really the only craft store near the house.  There is a Hobby Lobby near my office, which I've never been to.  It would mean going out at lunch, which practically never happens for me.  Leaving the office at lunch is so much work!   

I think this completes craigslist furniture needs for a while.  Next up, I'm looking for a bike.  But since that is Mr. Grumpbump's idea, I should probably just let it be his problem to solve.  I need to get back to the serious business of knitting.
