I have been "collecting" stools for our kitchen table/island. It is really an industrial work table that might be in workroom/garage. When we bought it we wanted something narrow and sturdy and that would look cool(we actually found a new one and I actually put it together!!!).It is extremely sturdy and I have been on the hunt for stools for it for a while. I now have 4 different kinds of stools gathered from garage sales and one came from the goodwill store. I have painted them all different shades of blue but the one I found this Sat. at a yard sale almost matched one I had , I painted my stool a tiffany blue and distressed it a while ago. So now that I found another similar one I painted it the same tiffany blue. I love how they look.

We live only a five minute drive from the beach and today was the first time we actually went all summer(hard to believe)!!!!! The beginning of June was cold and wet here in Wisconsin and then July snuck up on us and it was too hot!!!!!! Now we are in August and we finally are having nice weather. I took the boys and we just went on a beach walk. I am determined to start going daily with the boys and enjoy it before it gets cold!!!! I love being around water. Our dream is to move to Maui, Hawaii one day. While we were there the boys played at the little park and I took some photos. Here they are at the beach park.
