Blast Off Into Orbit
The beautiful thing about living in Los Angeles is that you can have an indoor/outdoor lifestyle basically all year round. The other day Senor asked me, "Are we going to cover our patio furiture for the winter?" I was puzzled. Do we live in Michigan? I am determined to take advantage of every warm spell this autumn to enjoy my terrace. (pictured above and below). One of my favorite patio pieces I have found in years is our round Orbit Lounger. I found it on Target.com and instantly became obsessed with it. I thought it was so perfect that I must have made it up. I had been researching upholstered loungers online and found most of them to be uninteresting and overpriced. The Orbit Lounger, especially in the green and red stripe, looked as if it had escaped from a 1960's Palm Springs movie. It's like finding a fabulous round bed that is actually comfortable. The built in table and umbrella doesn't hurt the package either. All this for only $399! I know I sound like an infomercial, but I don't care. I always want to share a wonderful find, especially one that's available to all. So go ahead and mix up a few Pina Coladas and stretch the summer into the fall. Bottoms up!
