Black tole tray, sunshine quilt, and some tweakin' going on...

Just wanted to share a few little Summery changes out here on the sunporch with you all, and show you my latest black tole tray that I've added to my illness  collection. Dee is having a super summer sale over at the French Bleu Vintage Shop, so you will want to go see what she has in. Check out her blog, I think she has a 30% off code going on.


The yellows, golds, peaches and reds just look so summery.

I had some cute comments on the post I did on the Patriotic Sunporch a week or two ago. It was suggested that it needs it's own book. It DOES have it's own personality for sure, and it's always wanting attention... So to indulge it once again, I found a sweet little quilt that was a substitute for a vintage version that "got away". Yes, I didn't buy something, then got home and thought about it. I went back the next day and of course it was gone. boo hoo. But I found this one, which is really bright and pretty, and filled the bill for my desire for "Yellow".



I've been enjoying the red fruity pillows out here, so I didn't want to start over, but it was time to put away the flags, and the blue accents, and concentrate on Summer, with some Apple pottery, which was the idea behind the reds and yellows. 








This is a vintage quilt from my hubby's family that has pieced sailboats on the front. I'd forgotten it was a sunny yellow on the reverse, so it's part of the color scheme, too.






My paternal grandmother's Hull Apple Cookie Jar, salt and pepper, and stove jar love to be part of the Summer Baker's Rack decor. I remember that this cookie jar always had fresh homemade oatmeal cookies inside. I can see her kitchen like it was yesterday...sweet memories...


(actually it's two peppers because the salt took a tumble a few years ago, and I need to find another one that's not an arm and a leg).


Can you imagine that everyone used to save their bacon grease?
gag-o-rific...

I recently found this little oval plaid lunch pail,
 Love these little versions.




That checked pillow that's in the middle has the flag on the other side,
so I just turned it around to keep the great black/white check.


And speaking of "apple" things,
 here is a new little "skinny wreath" for the front door,
Lady Apples and Black-eyed Susans


And some appliqued feed sack tea towels that Ive been saving for Summer.



Hope you're having a great weekend,
