July 4th Patriotic Party Next Week!

Are you up for a little July 4th fun?

I've always loved decorating with a Patriotic Theme, and I know a lot of you do too. So how about a Patriotic Party starting next Thursday Evening at 6:00 PM Central for a July 4th Blowout of fun and inspiration. 

Link up posts past and present of all your Patriotic Decor, Recipes, DIY Projects, Vintage Memorabilia, Tablescapes...anything with a Patriotic or July 4th theme. You don't have to worry about doing a special post just for the party. I just want a place where we can link up all our inspiration from this year and memorable July 4th holidays in the past. If you'd like to share the party info you can grab the above image for your sidebar. Thanks so much for spreading the party invitation!

  See you here July 2nd at 6:00.
Bring your friends and family! 
I'll have the FireWorks!

Hi Everyone, and Welcome to Share Your Style!

Thanks so much for taking the time to come by and share all your summer fun with us. 
I love seeing all your great projects, DIY, recipes, and summer decor.

And speaking of fun decor, Holly from The Coconut Head's Survival Guide transformed a gargage sale score into her own version of a PB Patriotic Oar Decor. What a great idea for your Summer and July 4th Celebrations!

the comfort zone...

A couple of months ago when my husband first brought up the pick-up and camper idea, I have to admit I was not really "on board". He'd talked about it off and on for years, but it didn't seem like much of a reality. Then 12 years ago our lives changed drastically with my heart problems and basically our focus on life became more day to day and month to month, rather than long term.

Then Hubbs had his own health problems with Meniere's for a few years. After his surgery a few years ago, he's pretty much back to "normal". But we've both realized that whatever traveling we were going to do was not going to be by plane. Him with an inner ear issue and me having had blood clots in my heart, the thought of flying... anywhere... made both of us shudder. We've gotten used to the idea that there are plenty of wonderful places we can visit and enjoy that are here in the states. Although it would be wonderful to jet off to foreign destinations, I prefer to be firmly planted on the ground. Does that make us over the hill fuddy duddies? I hope not. In our perspective, just a little more realistic and practical.

Patriotic Summer Kitchen Tote

With the 4th of July just around the corner, it is time to break out the 
 Red White and Blue!

I've been working on changing up the Kitchen Sitting Area, and giving it a patriotic feel. The kitchen needed a good dose of "Summer" so I'm giving it a punch of RED. I started with the kitchen table, and gave it something different to wear. So here's just a peek at my Vintage Summer Kitchen, with a white tote filled with vintage utensils.

Ode to a small white table...

I've always had a "thing" for small white tables. 
I think it's something about having a clean white canvas...
a place to decorate that's not overwhelming.
It can be seasonal, Holiday, themed...
a small white table can be anything you want it to be.
