We're getting closer

The turtle pen/pool bench is almost complete.  And I'm pretty sure I love it now!  It looks sooo much better with stain.  Plus, we rearranged the patio furniture and I pulled all of the cushions for the furniture out of the garage (they have been sitting on top of Brandon's old Volkswagen for months now) and scrubbed the crap out of them yesterday.  And I do mean CRAP.... literally!  We have a very nasty dog that lives in our garage.  If you ever thought you wanted an English Bulldog you were WRONG.... and I mean seriously mistaken. 

Anyway... Back to the new piece of furniture in our back yard.  Here is a little sneak preview.  It will be so much better when I get all the cushions in place and the plants start to fill in!  We can not wait for SUMMER!  It's going to be sooooo relaxing sitting out by the pool EVERYDAY! 

And when you look carefully inside the structure you can see some of our box turtle friends...
And because I previously mentioned the English Bulldog issue...  Here is our little sweetness, Klaus.  You see him and just want to grab his little cheeks.  Until you start to approach him and he begins to growl.  We've decided it's a bad breed.  Don't let the pictures fool you!

I've got a Scentsy party tonight that I need to prepare for....  Tomorrow I have big plans to get some sewing done in the morning.  Perhaps I might actually get some new shirts done.  We shall see...
