A Surprise

10 Aug

Well, if you’re wondering where I was (since I was obviously neglecting my blog), let me assure you, I was doin’ good stuff.  I took off for a girls’ holiday! I flew up to New Jersey and then hopped in a car (a lovely, brand new car!) with my sister and mum and drove up to beautiful New England.  What a great time! … two of my favorite people in some of the most lush and lovely places in the US.

It was a great time!

When I got back to Iuka, Boyd had a wonderful surprise for me…but first, I need to set the scene…

  As some of you know, I am a bit of a pain in the neck when it comes to color — in fact, when colors are off, I’m actually a BIG pain in the you-know-what! Those of you who have followed the Bushranger Blog for a while know that Bushranger’s outside colors are black and white with red highlights.  Her inside colors are the same, with the addition of green for that extra splash of pizzazz.

Well, we have been trying to use as much of Bushranger’s original bits and pieces as possible; so we have been using a little blue and white table on the fly bridge at tea time/lunch/etc. It was just the right size, but was a bit tacky (with its laminate starting to separate) and, of course, THE WRONG COLOR!…but, I was being a good girl and would only wince a few times when we used it.

Well, fast forward to this morning…after arriving back at the boat, Boyd made me a cup of coffee and we proceeded up to the fly bridge, and tah-dah!…look what I found!

Boyd replaced the tacky blue and white table top and made me a black, starboard table (starboard is a material that acts like wood but essentially last forever).

…it’s beautiful!…

…and I am such a fortunate woman…

    looks fabulous, nothing like decor that tones, blends & is easy to the eye 🙂
