Hurray for the Red, White, and Blue

I've been trying to get the house ready for the St. Louis kids to be here this week. They have a super long, free weekend ahead. I'm so excited, they haven't been here since Christmas, and we always have such a great visit.

I wanted to put together a table centerpiece that was fresh.
Yea, I can be the queen of faux flowers,
but today I cut a few of my fresh stems from my potted plants.

So, these little sweeties are real.
Red, white, and blue...well, sort of blue.

This vintage metal milk bottle carrier
and a few bottles, fit the bill.

It really brightens the kitchen
and also adds a patriotic feel.

Just love this old Summerdale Meadows milk bottle.

Hope your week is a good one.
I'll see you back here on Thursday and Friday
with Vintage Inspiration Friday for the
 Patriotic Party

I'm also joining in on these great parties:

love to you all,

I've been looking for an old milk carrier to no avail, Debra. Yours looks fantastic, all decked out for the 4th! The seed packets and flags were the icing on the cake.
