we used to have nice patio furniture...

but we don't have a covered patio.  or sunroom.  or pergola.  or a shade tree over our patio.  or a patio umbrella because it blew away 2 years ago during a storm when we forgot to crank it closed.  well, apparently, the sun can do major damage to outdoor patio furniture cushions.  because after being on our patio every summer for 5 years it started to look like this....




which gave this little mama the impression that she was at "nests-r-us"






she even called some of her neighbors to shop with her....


uh-oh...she's on to me...


i'll give her a break because she's so cute...


and her babies will be nice and warm and cozy this year.  

but dang girl, that was my furniture!!!  and wouldn't you know, old martha stewart for kmart no longer makes our patio set OR our cushions....sigh

That is so adorable! At least you'll know there are some warm baby birds out there : ) The actual chairs themselves look great!I love the leaf detail on them. I'm sure a store somewhere would do some covers to fit.

I love watching birds and this is delightful. I can relate to the outdoor furniture thing too. I'm glad I found your blog. It's such a nice mix of photos and commentary.

It's not so bad, at least you're helping that bird's family lol... You can give her the old cushion and get yourself a new one... Anyway, I think you've got great pictures with that bird in there.

Your little birdy is so funny. What a wonderful moment to catch on film! She definitely hit the jack pot. I also love the print of the cushions, too bad they don’t make them anymore, at least they are well loved!

I am having a garden in house that I have build by myself where you will find cheap garden furniture but the designs of the furniture are awesome and fully creative. I am always interested for cheap but well designed garden furniture for my garden. If you have any information regarding cheap garden furniture please let me know. Thanks.
