My Bench...without Mr. Toad! & a give away

First there is a give away I want to tell you about.
Happy Cottage Quilter is having a Club 98 give away. Just click on her name here and pop over there and see what lovely things she has for it. She would love to hear from all of you. Also, Jodi at Simply This That and The Other is doing hexagons, for a quilt with fabric from each state. She needs 4 more states for the fabric. Details are on her site, just click on the name.
The bench is finally done and up on the front porch. My husband had to brace up the bottom of the bench a bit because it gets rather windy here at times and it would tip over. We did not want it to sit close up to the house as it is a bit humid here.

I think he did a beautiful job on it. He did another little bench for me that I got at a garage sale several years ago. This is for a child but I thought it was so cute and for a couple of dollars I couldn't pass it up. It was painted red and the red did not all strip out but I think it came out nice. He finished that one yesterday as well.
And as you can see, Mr. Toad is no where to be found.
Happy 4TH of July everyone!

That bench looks like it was made for that spot on your porch! I wish my front steps were bigger, so I could have something like that!
Thanks for sharing!

I agree with Angela. I'd love to have a front porch large enough for a bench like that. The bench is gorgeous and I like the chair too.
