The Turquoise Table

So many people (myself included) feel a bit disconnected from our neighbors these days. We all go about our busy lives without even knowing the names of people who live next door.

Kristin Schell did something about it. She bought a  72-inch picnic table from Lowes and painted it "Nifty Turquoise - SW 6941" and put it on her front lawn about two feet from the sidewalk.

Then she got up the nerve to just sit there with a cup of coffee and wait for someone to come by. It didn't take long before a woman walking her dog sat down to chat and a friendship was born.

She has since launched a turquoise table community.

Loved this book and highly recommend it!
