Check out Jenny's blog for more Alphabe-Thursdays.

I finally bought a few furniture pieces for the patio.  I've only been wanting to do it since we put the enclosed patio up 2 years ago.  If you've read my previous posts over those years about the patio, we still are having issues with it, ugh.  I think they wore us down though and we just overlook it now.

Anyhow, I bought two chairs and an ottoman.

I had planned on buying 3 but they were kind of on the pricy side.  I chose them because they were primarily made in the United States.  They make the wicker in America and assemble the furniture  also.  The fabric isn't from America but they at least sew the material for the cushions (thus the expense). 

Also, we have a store around here called Old Time Pottery .  I think it's only in the midwest and south.  I bought a couple of rugs that I love.  I am going to look for something more durable for winter though.

The weather has been so gorgeous here most of the summer, I've been able to sit on the patio a lot with the Ipad.  It's been so great that the weather has cooperated for me, lol.

Thtt is great that your patio furniture was made in America... Even if in part! And I love the graphic piece.

Dropping by from Jenny's. I finally had something with the right letter to share on the right day.

Oooh, love the chair and ottoman! They look very comfy! Nice to have an enclosed patio -- ours is covered but not enclosed although I'd love it to be, especially in the 100 degree heat of the summer!

That looks like the perfect place to curl up with a book and a cup of tea!

Everything looks great! Having said that, I get how annoying it is when something isn't done right in the first place and you still keep having trouble with it. Sure is hard to get an honest, reliable construction crew these days.


PS. I'm also impressed that you were willing to pay extra and buy something made in America!
