    Aren’t you feeling clever with this post! Not only do you share a fun and happy table, you’ve thrown in rhyming words. We brought all our porch furniture up yesterday, and it would be great to have your mermaids there.

  2. I love this post, Jenna! Beautiful table and view, also.

  3. “blabla”? Really? That’s the manufacturer name? That’s cute!!!!

    This is a neat seaside table, Jenna! The margarita glasses are almost “dreamy” looking! Cute as they can be!!! Everything looks terrific, and I would give my eye teeth to be sitting at that table with a pitcher of margaritas, Miss Made by blabla sitting across from me, and just whiling away the time like I’m going to live forever!!! Mission accomplished: you have “brightened [my] life in some small way”!!! 🙂

    • You are welcome any time, I will gladly whip up a pitcher of margaritas just for you! Blabla dolls are the cutest things ever, you need to check them out if you need a baby present or something for a small child, they are so adorable and you have to love the name!

      Wishing you a great weekend!

  10. A great seaside table. I’m sure the margaritas tasted even better with that view.

    I’m back for another swim and to dine with the mermaids 🙂 Love the whimsy~

    Love the poetry and your fishy table! I’ll join the mermaid as I’d love to dine at your cute table. Cold soup in a margarita glass sounds like a great idea. Fun!!

  13. I don’t know what I love more, the table…or the view!

  14. Sarah says:

    Delightful! Your little rhyme and charming table gave me a little beach trip. You have a gorgeous view, the perfect spot for a mermaid lunch. Love the needlepoint pillow, but don’t see any needlepoint offered on the link. Do you sell these?
