PB Style: Night Lights

***
 This is a stale post.  Don't you smell the stank?
For fresh ideas and the newest new new stuff 
why don't you head on over to the blog we actually update.

Love to see you there.
Carry on as you were.

Because we all sit out on the back porch
with the umbrella still up
long after the sun has gone down
with the candles lit

I decided to whip out the ribbon
and go to town on these little lanterns I found
on half price sale for a dollar each
at the Goodwill, Intl District

I teetered and I tottered
on the wobbly chair
to open the umbrella
and string up my lamps

Then I also realized that I could actually close the umbrella
without taking down the lanterns
and that they would sit neatly on the table
or in my pots

This was a simple project.

I took those there lanterns

Took some ribbon and a stapler to attach said ribbon

And we rocked it out.

I imagine that the next time
that I open the umbrella
they will hang just as I strung them
in the perfect spots
on the umbrella arms

or maybe I'll be cussing them out
for getting tangled in the umbrella mechanism.
