    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.

  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!
