For Mother's Day I want a new swing for our backyard. You know, those nice ones with the canopy and a soft-cushioned seat. I want one in a nice pattern and long enough to stretch out my legs. I love to knit or read while the boys play on a nice summer day. Our current swing has bit the dust, so a new one is the perfect Mother's Day gift for me.
On our way home from dinner last night we had time to stop in a store that I'd seen a swing in a pattern I liked. There were two to choose from and one was small and kinda
A wonderful lady approached me and told me that the swing I liked so much was $299 new, but I could have the display model for $35. Excuse me? Thirty-five dollars? (I said it slowly.) Then I actually said, "It's mine!" or "I'll take it!" or something like that. It's still all a blur to me.
I could have also named my blog Adventures In Unbelievable Bargains. I'll have to tell you about them sometime. God has truly blessed me in this area!
Apparently underneath the cushion there is some threading starting to separate. But if you have the cushion on, you do not see this and the swing still functions just as it should. And it's a nice swing. All $299 worth of it! Before I even figured out how we were going to get it back to our house and before I even told hubby about the incredible deal, the swing was mine. All mine. And it will be coming home to me today. (Please pray that it fits in my dad's truck!) Happy Mother's Day to me!
P.S. It fit!!!
