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.

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.

Summer Holiday Cupboard with Patriotic Flair




When June comes around I gather my vintage dishes and a few elements that are red/white/blue and restyle my old pie safe cupboard. A few pieces of red transferware mix it up with my French faience pottery dishes. Then when I start decorating for July 4th holiday I just add in some small memorial flags. Presto, instant Patriotic décor.

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.

Summer Sideboard and Cookbook Cupboard With Patriotic Color


Hello there dear friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful Father's Day Weekend. I wanted to share part 2 of the Hearth Room patriotic decor, that I started earlier this week. The Hearth Room has a lot of fun spots to decorate seasonally, so I concentrated on the mantel and seating area in Part 1.

Vintage Flags in the Hearth Room





How has your "June and start to summer" been going? I know I say this at least once a week, but can you believe we're now into mid-June and even though it's not officially summer, it's definitely summer around here in southern Missouri.

Summer Patriotic Door Basket with Ticking Fabric Ribbon




Last week I worked on getting my front porch presentable and decked out with a Patriotic Summer vibe. During the summer months I keep a red/white/blue theme with pillows, flowers, and my door basket. I add in flags the last couple of weeks of June into July and then remove them after that first week of July. That color scheme works throughout Summer until late August when I start bringing in some sunflowers and early Fall colors.

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...
