Can't wait for summer... next summer, that is

Isn't this chair beautiful? Guess what... it's a patio chair... made of aluminum. I spied this in this month's issue of House Beautiful.

It's by Treillage and costs $750.

To have a set of those... on a patio overlooking the ocean... sipping a cocktail...

Does anyone know how to get tongue prints off your monitor?

Anyway... what I was going to say was: If your patio has served you well this summer and it could use a little freshening up, now's a good time to do it.

Stores are moving on to the fall and winter seasons and are marking down prices on their outdoor furniture, pillows and other accessories.

Restoration Hardware has those Miramar Pillows in Navy outdoor pillows on sale for $19.99 each.

These Pottery Barn Pressick Lanterns are on sale, too, for between $19.99- $24.99.
Pier 1 has Oil Lamp Garden Stakes are on sale for $7.48 each. (Pier 1 doesn't have an online store anymore, so you'll have to live near one to take advantage of the sale.)

A pair of these Hampton Bay Wicker stack chairs goes for $90 through Home Depot.

And the umbrella is on sale for $299 for CB2.

If you buy now, you'll be all set for next season and won't have to scurry around buying at full price... or like we like to say around here: fool price.

Last chance: Today's the last day to enter my contest for a fun art project by leaving a comment on Saturday's post!

Ooooh! I love that chair! I can't believe it's aluminum for outside. Way cool! I love this time of year with all the clearance. I was at Pier 1 the other day and went hog wild! Thanks for the heads up.

I love the pillows, all of ours recently broke in half and turned into dust... those would even match the couch.

Hi Mary, really nice blog. You sharing your artistic talents with your readers is a great bonus. I love the chair too but not $750 worth! LOL
Thanks for visiting my lowly little 'hardly been there myself lately' blog.

Gorgeous pillows - blue and white is my favorite color combination.

Thanks for visiting my blog
