    Retro

    I have had this very original Retro picnic umbrella for quite some time. I got teased regularily about it's wildness and why couldn't I just buy a new one....on and on! I decided since now it is just very cool and fashionable, I should make a retro table topper so this is what I designed and made. Hope you enjoy my fun project.

    Why would you buy a new one when you already have such a beauty? And your table cover is wonderful!

    How fun with the rick rack too. And so bright and perfect. And you solved that center pole problem too. What a great happy project. It was a nice way to start my morning.

    I'm with you, why buy something new when what you have is great. Good idea to add a table cover. Very eye catching.

    That is adorable. I just love the table topper and the umbrella. Of course I would since my lawn furniture is vintage! Oh well, so am I!!!
