Southern Lady Magazine--May/June issue
I really depend on this magazine to perk up the month with recipes, table decor, gardening and travel information. And to top it all, they are not afraid to show they are followers of our Lord.
This pergola or enclosed patio is one I could go for. We had a pergola built a couple of years ago but do not use it near as much as I had dreamed. Mostly because we have a short Spring and are into Summer by May. Next to our pergola is a lady statue fountain. The men who installed our pergola also were to install the fountain and when I got home there it was running water, however, the statue of the woman that I had carefully worked on for a year to grow algae on was now stunningly white. The man was gleaming and said I finished the job and even had time to give the lady a bath. I could not tell him how long I had put yogurt and buttermilk, etc on her to give her that aged look. Anyway, a little story to go along with this wonderful patio area that was in the same issue of Southern Lady magazine.
Another scene from the current issue is this simple table setting which is wonderful and shows
So check out this fine magazine and you will see what I am talking about.
