Fall Giveaway!

by Shelly

Here in Southern California we tend to have pretty nice weather well into October. It isn’t until November, sometimes even December that we start to really have a Fall season. With that being said, Fall has definitely come to our area right on time this year and I’m quite enjoying it!  Cooler weather and falling leaves allows me to break out my boots and snuggly sweaters.

{our patio furniture at the old *tear* house}

When we lived in our much bigger house just a few streets away in the same neighborhood, we invested in some nice solid teak outdoor furniture for our covered patio area. We got it all at 35% off when my beloved Smith and Hawkin store went out of business. Even so, it was quite a splurge and definitely still pricey! So, now at our new home our backyard (which still needs to be remodeled and professionally landscaped) doesn’t have any sort of patio cover to protect our furniture from the elements.  I started searching around for good quality covers that would protect this set from the elements, as well as keep the Sunbrella cushions clean and dry until Spring.  Low and behold the good people over at Empire Covers contacted me and asked if I’d like to try out their covers!  I jumped at this offer and was thrilled to finally find covers that would not only look good, but were good quality AND fit my sectional outdoor set.   Not an easy task, since most outdoor covers only work on sofas, chairs, etc.

Aren’t they nice!? I love the stripes AND that the covers are just a bit bigger than the furniture.  That way I am able to hide all my outdoor throw pillows and even some of my kiddos outdoor toys underneath as well!  After one rain storm last weekend and another one expected again this weekend…well these could not have come too soon!

But guess what friends?

The good peeps over at Empire Covers are offering one lucky reader $100 off their choice of a patio cover!!!!

Wanna win?
