Patriotic Greetings from the Garden Room

Hello dear friends, I hope you're having a great July 4th weekend.
I wanted to share a few snaps from the Garden Room with my antique rocking horse and the goat cart dressed up with a vintage patriotic vibe. I try to deck out my horsey for each season, but often I don't take time to share what he's up to. 

Since I've been recovering from the back surgery this last month I haven't been able to get out a lot of decorating, but I did have this little area put together with a few flags and patriotic ribbons.

Many of you may remember my antique rocking horse which I introduced to you all back at Christmas time in 2012. My parents bought him for me when I was just a baby and he was already a bonafide "antique" piece. 

Here's another post from 2016 when I used him on the mantel
at our last home.

Whatever you're up to this weekend, hope it's a good one. We've been having our large yard mowed for this last few years, but recently we've lost two mowing companies, so it was time for my husband to put himself out there and make a commitment to do the yard work. We found a self-propelled mower that doesn't take over the garage so that's what he's been up to so far. I've been trying to "supervise" from afar, but have spent a few hours on the back and front porch. Since he retired this year it's not quite so intimidating a situation. There is a lot of satisfaction from seeing your hard work create a beautiful outdoor setting. 

Did you catch my last post on the Patriotic Farm Table?

Hope you'll come back Monday evening...
