A bit Funky~

My mom and I went to the neatest "antique/vintage" shop. Looking back I wish I would of bought a few other things but it was at the beginning of our trip.

I found these neat candle holders and a fun metal basket~ I thought it would be perfect out at my pool!

I have these striped wooden chairs and they needed some attention. So while my Mr. Sandy Toes was headed to Lowes. I had him pick up a can of "aqua" paint and had a little fun~

It's a bit bright...okay, maybe a little funky! But, it's perfect for our pool area!
