ABC Wed - Vat You Vant?

I experienced a Venturesome moment a couple of months ago.

After receiving an e-mail seeking Volunteers,

on behalf of our local Art Association for our local First Friday Art Walk,

to create (or re-create) the "common garden chair."

Might I Vaunt?

I immediately Vowed to participate in a timely fashion;
presenting not one, but two garden chairs!


It was a Vista, if I may be Veracious,

aided by Veritable childhood memories,

by which these designs were enVisioned. :-)

Whoever purchases these chairs at the end of the summer should remove
the fake flowers and plant something that will be better enjoyed.

The chairs are named...

"Sister Chairs . . . . . . But Not Quite Twins"

"Sisters ... Sisters ..."
from White Christmas
starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen
(YouTube video)

Do not Vacillate. Which chair do you like better?

Hi Roger, :-) ha!

I guess you might think it's a vase, but it's supposed to look like an iris... however that blue piece of mosaic on the pot looks like a V. lol

Ali said...

Oh wonderful chairs! My boys just saw them and asked if we could make some too... uh oh...!

Shady Gardener said...

Sorry, Ali! How old are your boys? How nice they want to do it, too! :-)

Veritable beauties, each and every. Love the mosaic pots and I might even be partial to the self sustaining imitation flowers. :) Cheery, happy, artistic.

Lisa said...

I love these! Definitely vibrant colors and such a fun idea. :-) I like the lilac-colored chair the best.

Shady Gardener said...

Tumblewords, Thank you so much. :-)

Hi Lisa! You would love the other chairs, too! Thanks for your enthusiasm! :-)
