I saw this one first when looking for something at Christmas time. I liked the shelf with baskets under it. Could come in handy on a lazy day when you want something close to you -- like lunch or books or binoculars, etc.

This is the third try at capturing these on my camera. For some reason, the first two tries were unsuccessful. I was determined to get them since I did not have any red benches yet. They had 4 of them in the front of the store.

Hopefully, this is a better view of the bench I posted the other night. Once again, just a little snow. Today is the third time it snowed but we sure aren't getting much while all around us, cities are getting much more. CLICK on to enlarge and see the beautiful wood. This is truly a beautiful bench placed curbside facing a house.

Well, it snowed Sunday but not much. I watched it from the big picture windows in the narthex at church. I was in charge of the Cookie Walk and couldn't leave to take photos. That is when I saw the most snow but it was really blowing off the parking lot fast. When I left around noon, there wasn't much snow to take photos of -- across the river in Oregon, they got all the snow! We just have the freezing cold and it was just 14 degrees. So then I had a meeting when I got home in the apartment building. Just after 4:00, I was finally "free" to try to get some photos but had to have a bite to eat since all I had all day so far was a cookie. Then I went outside to take some photos of the remaining snow and was very unsuccessful. I can't figure out how to take a flash photo with my new camera -- it looks like is "automatic" and I have no control over it. I have to read more of the booklet, I guess.
Anyway, now that I have made excuses for my not so good grainy photo, here's the surprise I found near my home. It was two cold to walk more than two blocks and this bench was definitely not there a short time back. It is in a weird place near the curb facing the house so hope it doesn't disappear before I can get a better photo. How I miss my old camera!
Oops! Forgot to upload photo -- will get it up asap

Found this colorful bench when we went over to the VA hospital to deliver handmade things we had knitted or crocheted for their Christmas shopping for Vets in the hospital for their families.
I found several benches there and will be posting them eventually.
