Kittens on a Pink Bench

I have a cottage cabin in a high desert area. This little cottage is a work in progress. Recently, Mr. Fun put up some siding that was much needed. Yesterday it rained, an uncommon occurrence in our area. When it rains, the dirt gets crunchy and makes things look even dirtier - like my little pink bench.

A little history on that little pink bench

We have a table with two benches that we inherited with the cottage. They were white but looking awfully shabby. Okay, I know the French Shabby look is in, but these had paint peeling and desperately needed a fresh touch of paint. Surprising me, Mr. Fun painted the benches with white paint...he thought. When he looked closer, he realized he had painted the little benches with a very light pink paint. I love them! They not only provide a practical bench for my garden supplies for my flower, vegetable, and kitchen gardens. They are adorably cute! This morning I was leaving for one of my blog class sessions that I teach when I noticed two of our little kittens perched on top of one of the little pink benches, the one beside the new siding. Of course, I had to stop and take a picture or two. Speaking of cute! Normally after a rain, I hurry to the flowers to see if there are any lingering raindrops. That always fascinates me. But this morning the two little kittens on the pink bench outranked my raindrop flowers for once.

Oh, and today is Mr. Fun's birthday! Happy Birthday to my other half I've been married to for 33 years. Find more of his fun upcycled crafts where he blogs at
