We have an octagonal screen in gazebo we purchased years ago in a summer clearance sale. We put it on the deck. It may not be designer pretty but it is wonderful! The canvas is worn through and we have patched it and patched it but we LOVE it.
My favorite part is sitting out front on my front porch, reading -- I am semi-hidden when sitting but I can watch the kids in the neighborhood play (LOVE listening to them also) and if I want, greet people walking by either with purpose or strolling. Close second is eating breakfast outside on my back deck. It feels so decadent to relax like that!
"The Singing Butler" - the whole idea of the butler and the maid standing in the rain annoys me and I see this everyewhere on everything ... The colors are great but the subject just reminds me of snobbery.
