Vintage Baskets for Every Season




Hello friends, Welcome to our bimonthly gathering of vintage loving décor peeps. This is where we share how we use vintage pieces and collectibles in our home decorating. Coming from parents who were antiquing nuts and myself buying and selling vintage and antique pieces for my whole adult life, I come by incorporating old pieces into my home spaces as a way of life.

Vintage Patriotic Garden Room and the Baker's Rack





It's hard to believe that June is rolling over to July and that means half a year is behind us. I hope you've been enjoying your summer days and having some special warm weather memories. 
You know me, I'm a vintage loving person who loves to decorate for holidays. I'm in the Garden Room sharing the cozy little sitting area where I enjoy coffee or a cool drink in the afternoon.

Patriotic Mantel and the Summer Hearth Room



Welcome to Summer friends, I hope you are able to enjoy it and not have to stay indoors because of the intense heat. We were watching TV and endless commercials with people enjoying their "Summer" activities outdoors and I lamented to my husband that "I love summer except for the heat". I guess that's how it's always been. I've just been able to handle it until the last several years.

Antique Sideboard with Blue Transferware and Ironstone



I've been trying to take my own advice by taking decorating at a slower pace. I'm changing things up with the seasons, but also trying to not let it overwhelm me. During early summer I love using patriotic elements and color for décor, but adding flags to a basic summertime "look" goes a long way for me.

Hurray for the Red, White and Blue in the Cupboard




When June rolls around it's time to restyle the Cupboard with a patriotic theme. I like to give it a Summer refresh where I can add in some mini flags and and small bits of patriotic ephemera when it's close to July 4th. I don't have a lot of actual patriotic pieces, but rely on vintage china and pottery that reflect summer and our patriotic summer holidays with color.

Summer Farmtable with Patriotic Flags



Hi Friends, how's your start to June and summer? I've been slowly transitioning my home decor from "Spring" to "Summer" this last week or so. My seasonal decorating relies on color along with favorite vintage linens and elements. I like to reflect nature's current color, so that my "indoor" views match my "outdoor" views. Spring focuses on pastels while summer brings out the brighter colors and concentrates on a bit of the red/white/blue.
