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,
