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!

Our good friend Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home is hosting this Hop, so be sure and run by to visit.

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.

Patriotic Best DIY and Decor Round Up


Hey Friends, May has arrived and before we know it Summer will be here. (We've been close to 90 the last few days, so it certainly feels like it!) Then it's just a few weeks slide until we'll be bringing out the red/white/blue decor for Memorial Day and July 4th. You know how much I love to decorate seasonally and for holidays, but sometimes I wait till the last minute and try to throw some decor together. Better to get some inspiration and fun ideas for seasonal decor a few weeks ahead of time. Then we can make a great plan for what we might want to create and how to decorate.

Easy Patriotic Decor With Vintage Flags

Hi Everyone, thanks so much for coming by for Vintage Cottage Weekend! You may be wondering why you're seeing patriotic decor in May, but I'll be joining with a great group of bloggers next week for a patriotic roundup of DIYs and decorating, I wanted to share an updated version of some Easy Patriotic Decor that I've created in the past with vintage flags. With summer kicking off for Memorial Day later this month, then July 4th coming up, now's the time to start grabbing ideas for porch decor, tablescapes, and vignettes that are fun and easy to put together with a patriotic vibe.

I hope you are having a great July 4th long weekend. I'm still in recovery mode after having lumbar spine fusion a month ago, (hard to believe it's been a month) but I can see small improvement each day. It will just take a while. Thankyou again and again for your patience, thoughts and prayers.

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.

Patriotic Farmtable Garden Bucket with Flags

Hi dear friends, Hope you're doing well and enjoying this first week of July. Hard to believe this is now July. To be honest this summer is sliding by, although I know that things will slow down as we get to mid July. I haven't done much decorating at all for July 4th, but I wanted to share a few pics of the farmtable decor tableau that usually gets a changeup every month out here in the Garden Room.

Flags and Teapots in the Patriotic Holiday Cupboard

Hi Friends, wow, it's so hard to believe that the July 4th holiday is just around the corner! Are you getting into the Summer groove? A few weeks ago I brought out my traditionally summer French Faience and exchanged the Green Transferware in the Holiday Cupboard here in the Garden Room.

Summer Inspiration at All About Home #97

Hi Friends, Welcome to the All About Home Link Party. Thankyou for taking the time to come by and share what you're up to this week. I'm still in recovery mode after having lumbar spine fusion a couple of weeks ago and I really wasn't prepared for what that would be like. I'm using a walker and I basically have to rely on my husband for all the little things. Any little "off move" can cause pain and put things at a standstill. But I can see small improvement each day. It will just take a while. Thankyou again and again for your thoughts and prayers.
