Dare We Hope?

Bistro.jpgToday, here in Utah, it’s warm and sunny. Buds on my flowers and trees are starting to emerge. Snow is harder and harder to find. Dare we hope that Spring has arrived?

I love being outside, and look forward to preparing the yard for summertime. Part of that preparation for me this year is getting a new table for the deck. Our previous table was given to us and we learned the hard way that it isn’t snow and water friendly.  Basically the table top is sitting in a heap of rubble on the deck. 

My wife and I like to hide from the kids and have breakfast outside. So I think this year I am going to get the Lifetime Bistro Set. If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s pretty nice. Made from Polystyrene, which is a type of plastic that looks like wood, this table is definitely snow and water friendly. It comes with a table and two chairs.

Since it’s a Bistro-style table I’ll also need something bigger for the Summer barbeques, so I’m thinking about a Lifetime Picnic Table. The table I have in mind looks similar to a traditional wooden picnic table, with wide flat legs and attached benches, but is made from HDPE, also a type of plastic, and powder-coated steel, which make it weather resistant. This table has an umbrella hole built in too.

w-frame.jpgBoth these tables fold up for storage, but I will probably just leave them out, since we often get sunny days here in Utah in the winter, and we have been known to be outside eating breakfast bundled up in our winter coats. Also, because of how they are made, the Utah winter won’t do to them what it did to my current table.

Good luck with your Spring gardening preparations. If in your preparations you find you need some new tables, check these two out at Costco or online at buylifetime.com.

Favorite Room In My House
We moved to a new house two years ago and I love it! Out of the entire house, guess which room my favorite? Ok, trick question…it’s not even really a room. It’s the closet in our office! It’s a large walk-in closet with two doors and a window. I use one side for storage of big things like suitcases, our baby pack-n-play, etc. The other side is my own little niche….my craft closet. Most of the crafts I do are just small paper type crafts (handmade cards, invitations, etc.) so I don’t need a lot of room or fancy supplies. Most people laugh at me and ask why I don’t just use the entire office as my craft room. Well, as I’ve mentioned before, I love to be organized so it’s crucial to my sanity that I don’t leave projects-in-process just laying around where I can see all of the clutter. So, turning the closet into my craft close...
Have you started composting?
For most of us in the Lifetime family, winter is on its way out. What does that mean? Time to start cooking compost! For those who dont know, Lifetime Products makes a Composter! (You can read all about it in my previous post.) The question was asked How do I separate my compost from my non-composted organic matter? Good question! First would be getting another composter. One composter would be for actually making compost in while the other would be for filling up. When youre done making compost in one, you can empty it and start using it as your filler and the other as your composter. Of course, this means buying two of our composters, which we wouldnt mind at all. ;) The second idea is what I do with my single Lifetime Composter at my house. I cant fill the thing - as soon as it gets full, the composting proces...
Narrow 18" Table Saves Space
We all use folding tables for a variety of reasons. Just think of how you use your tables. You can probably think of a few different uses, right? At Lifetime, we provide affordable quality tables in all shapes and sizes for that exact reason. For dining and eating, a standard banquet style table works really well - the 30-inch wide surface provides the right amount of space to lay out the food and still give you room for plates and table settings across from each other. Now, the question I pose today is what about the times when you just need to display food in a buffet style and you need to keep the table out of the way?Well, a great option for you would be to use one of our 18-inch wide LifetimeConference Tables as that perfect buffet table for the home, office, or church get together. This style of table is a recent addit...
