I just got back home from Italy. You know there is an open air market every day of the week in Naples and in neighboring localities where you can buy almost everything you need: groceries, household articles, clothes, shoes, etc. I buy most of my stuff in Italy, so are for instance all my towels and bath towels purchased in Italy. A few years ago one particular market stall had very beautiful ones that I had to have! Since I took 3 sets of 10 pieces (2 sets for me, 1 set for my son) and the seller was a nice guy he decided I deserved a “gift” from him and gave me 6 beautiful cushions which I also liked for my garden chairs, for free! The cushions have a quiet floral pattern and I know they do not always match my tablescapes but you know what? I don’t care!
I love them, they are beautiful and they still look like new and they were for free, what more could one want? Susan, your porch is so beautiful, you know I love it and I love all your cushions, too, but honestly, I also don’t really care how they look! You have zillions 🙂 of different plates, no one can expect to see matching cushions every time you set a table for us, which is every week! (Plus, my favorite and the most important one is that red, white and blue cushion/pillow anyway…) 🙂
~Hugs to you~
