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!

All About Home Link Party #148

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

Summer has come down on us with a heatwave. Now, I know some of you all live in Texas, so you're used to the mid 90's in early May, but I'm just not acclimated for that yet. Watering container plants and shrubs has had me busy every day. A fun little miracle this week, is that I was able to see 4 little fledgling wrens leave their nest box and fly away with mom and dad. I'm a bird watcher for sure. I had a smile on my face for several days! 

Thankyou all so much for being here each week 
and sharing all your great ideas and beautiful inspiration!

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.

Hello to Summer at All About Home #147

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

Are you all getting into June and the fact that wow, it's now summer? I've been out puttering in the yard and on the back porch trying to stay ahead of the wildlife. I'm really loving all the great plant and garden posts along with the patriotic tablescapes and decor. Thankyou so much for being here each week and sharing all your great ideas and beautiful inspiration!

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.
