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.

Happy July 4th!!! at All About Home #203



Hi Friends, Welcome to the All About Home Link Party! This weekend we've been working on outdoor/porch cleanup. Power washing and preparing to paint. We've been hot and dry here, but it's supposed to rain tomorrow, so I'm hoping there's dry time for a quick cookout in the afternoon. Do you/did you have big plans for this weekend? Hope you're having a great holiday.

Stars and Stripes in the Garden Room



Hello from the Garden Room sitting area this hot summer weekend, as we welcome the month of July and a long July 4th weekend. This summer I gave myself some time to enjoy decorating for the 4th of July, gathering all my red, and blue items for display.

Quick Change Up Patriotic Entry



I started thinking about the Entry and looking back through my pics from the last several years, and was surprised that I hadn't seen a post with my Entry Hall console decorated for July 4th. I do each year, but for some reason I hadn't shown it here on the blog.

Patriotic Tablescape with Red and Blue Transferware



A few weeks ago I was on a mission to find white vintage swirl plates. My mom had had a set back in the 70's and I had an American knockoff version back in the 80's. Those were long gone by now, but I wanted a white plate that could be used for any season or holiday to set a family table.

Patriotic Color on the Summer Front Porch




I start thinking about Patriotic decorating in early June in anticipation of July 4th. For Memorial Day we usually put out a flag at the front of the house, but I start bringing out the red/white/blue in early June, which I keep out usually until the end of July.

Welcome to July at All About Home #151

Hello friends and Welcome to the 
All About Home Link Party!


Hope you all are having a great 4th of July, enjoying a long weekend and celebrating our country's birthday. Thanks so much for coming by in the middle of a holiday; we appreciate you all taking time out of your week to come and party with us. Sunday we finally had a good (really good) rain after a long month of hot weather. We've been trying to water, but we have a big yard and it's been difficult to keep up with the 90+ temps. It was a refreshing afternoon just watching from the back porch.


Thankyou all so much for coming by each week to share your lives and homes. 
I love seeing all your great ideas and beautiful inspiration!

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.

Patriotic Front Porch in the RWB

I started thinking about decorating the front porch for the July 4th holiday back in late May when I joined in on a roundup for patriotic ideas and inspiration. This house has a nice sized front porch where I have an old train depot bench so there's plenty of room for some fun seasonal and holiday decor. I really prefer using a basket on the door for faux florals with coordinating color and decorative ribbon, but since I have a problem with birds making nests in the basket from late March to June I usually just do a wreath in early spring to summer. I took a chance that by late June the birdie problem would be over. I think I'm safe...

All About Red, White, and Blue at All About Home #150

Hello friends and Welcome to the 
All About Home Link Party!


The 4th of July is next Monday, and it's amazing that half the year is past and we're heading into mid-summer. We're having a mini cool off which is so welcomed, since that cuts down my plant watering schedule and the utility bill. Still no rain, but the cooler temps help. Do you all have travel and party plans for the long 4th weekend? I hope you have a great week with lots of fun and family gatherings.

Thankyou all so much for coming by each week to share your lives and homes. 
I love seeing all your great ideas and beautiful inspiration!

Summer Decor DIY at All About Home #149

Hello friends and Welcome to the 
All About Home Link Party!

I hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day and enjoyed some family time. We're still in the 90's here in Missouri, without rain for a couple of weeks. Way too hot for June. Even the squirrels get too hot by noon to raid the birdfeeders. They'd rather lounge on the patio chairs.

Thankyou all so much for coming by each week to share your lives and homes. 
I love seeing all your great ideas and beautiful inspiration!

Mini Patriotic Makeovers on the Mantel

Hey there friends. I know we all like a good project and DIY, but today I'm going to share with you what happens when things don't turn out quite like we might plan. I'm going to share a behind the scenes pair of mini makeovers that I decided on for the patriotic mantel here in the hearth room. Many of us don't like to share those blah frustrating moments when you have a plan that gets off track. (me included). Personally, I think sharing setbacks and makeovers #1,#2, and #3 help all of us and save some time. Even if we have to cringe a bit and admit it was my best shot.

July 4th Farmtable in the Garden Room

Last month, I did a little DIY paint transformation with a breadboard to give it a more "subtle" look of gray-washed aging. That one little difference made a big impact on styling further tabletop centerpieces and tabletop tableaus out here in the Garden Room. I like to use more than one element in a tabletop grouping, but I don't want them scattered all around willy nilly. I like to corral those crazy knick knacks and vintage items!

Vintage Watering Cans for the Patriotic Porch


Hello Everyone, we all have a real treat today with a fun vintage Hop. I'm joining today with a great group of gals who love vintage goods and absolutely love using them to decorate our homes and porches. Our friend Cindy of County Road 407 came up with this unique way to share our vintage pieces with the Lifestyle of Love Bi-Monthly Hop. Our theme this month is galvanized tin containers and vintage items. Summer is the perfect season for sharing our metal farmhouse goods with an industrial and garden vibe.

Cozy Wicker Seating with Patriotic Color

As you all know, I like to keep things changed up in the Garden Room, and especially in the little wicker seating area next to the Holiday Cupboard and the baker's rack. During June and July it's filled with red, white, and blue accents and decor. I have several vintage quilts and coverlets that get to set the stage with mix and match pillows.

Vintage Cottage Weekend on the Patriotic Back Porch

Hi Friends, Happy Sunday. I think most of you know by now, and after 13 years, that I'm not the type of blogger that's into big reveals, major projects and complicated DIYs. I consider you all friends and I'm just looking to share my interests, little decor things that excite me, and my daily life. When I find something I love and enjoy I want to share it with you all.

Summer Patriotic Cupboard with Red Transferware


June is here and it's time to add a bit of the RED/WHITE/BLUE to the decor around the house and inside the Holiday Cupboard. This year I thought I'd try something a little different by combining my usual "summer" dishes, my French faience, along with the few red transferware pieces I've collected through the years.
