Red, White and Blue on the Baker's Rack

Hello friends, Happy July 4th Weekend!

I had a few spots with Patriotic decor that I haven't had a chance to share yet. You all know I love decorating for holidays with vintage pieces, so here are a few more pics from the Garden Room dressed up for the July 4th holiday. I like to keep a visual tour for how I decorate each year and then look back year to year to see what I've used and styled. 

Last year I had just had back lumbar spine surgery so I didn't decorate much or share many posts, but this year I guess I went all out with the fun. I've had over a month to put together the house and porches with vintage patriotic decor. I mostly use the same pieces each year, but try to mix them up with different vignettes and decorating spots. 

Speaking of traveling around the house, the Liberty Bell sunshine biscuit tin and Tiffany and Co. crock are here on the baker's rack to make a contribution to the patriotic color and decor.

My old stenciled seed "box" is a staple here on the baker's rack. Things get changed up here seasonally, but's its always incorporated with a bit of vintage garden goodies. This season it's random vintage pieces in blue and an old clay garden pot. Small Nelson Ware berry bowls made in England and an antique  Swan's Down "cake flour" recipe pamphlet from 1926.

not sure what this word is or the language???

Vintage blue metal lunch bucket and candy tin.

Current seasonal color is one of my favorite ways to bring 
in a seasonal or holiday display or vignette.

I bought this Quimper cache pot many years ago. It's a new piece from J. Willford pottery from Portugal. Not exactly American Patriotic, but it matches the blues for the color theme. Over the years I've used it as a kitchen utensil crock or kept an ivy in it. Right now it's one of the "traveling" pieces I move around the house.

I put out a few vintage and antique patriotic postcards around the house;
this one sitting on a copper flower frog.

My very old paper mache goose decoy is nestled in the bottom shelf basket. Speaking of geese, our messy friends haven't been back in about a month. I imagine they have been busy with babies down at the lake. I adored seeing them and their quirky personalities, just didn't enjoy cleaning up after them.

A French toile quilted coverlet and petit point pillow,
 found at a flea market, help add to the RWB color scheme.

This year I decorated the Holiday Cupboard early in June
 with red transferware and my French Faience. 

Here are a few other Patriotic posts from this year in case you missed them.

Thanks for stopping by, friends. I hope you're having a great July 4th weekend.
 We're so dry here so we are all hoping for a bit of rain. 
Be safe and have fun!

  1. Girl, it looks fantastic! Very patriotic! Happy 4th to you Debra!

  2. Looks beautiful as always, Happy 4th!

  3. You truly have a rich collection of patriotic things! The baker's rack and garden porch look great. I have a hateful relationship with Canada geese after years of riverbank messes in our former home. I don't miss that at all, but am still loathing seeing them on other's private properties along the river. I have a wooden one - the best kind. ;)

  4. Fun touches as always, Debra. Love seeing your patriotic details around your home. Happy July!

  5. Thankfully we do not have geese close to us, but I sure do enjoy watching them waddle down the street on the other side of town. They make me smile and laugh.

  6. Gosh your baker's rack is lovely, Debra! That seed box is adorable and the blue tin lunchbox is so charming! Love all of your vintage Americana!!
