It is amazing how a $2 leftover Easter tablecloth can cheer up a dreary back yard. I thought my mom was crazy when she brought it to me. We never spend time out back. My kids play in the front yard. But you know what? It makes my ugly yard (or lack thereof) bearable, or, dare I say, enjoyable. A little spot of sunshine amidst the grey of the house, garage, cement patio and pebbles. We have been sharing a lot more meals in this previously overlooked location because it just makes it so much more fun. What a difference a quick sweep, a little sunshine, and a tablecloth can make.
