Patriotic Decor You Just May Have to Have

The 4th of July is two weeks away so it's not too late to
pick up a couple new cute things to help celebrate the holiday.
Here are a few I think you might like.

Pretty red, white and blue flowers on this grapevine wreath.
The unique flower with the flag print is made of paper.
This would be the perfect welcoming touch on your front door.


Here is some melamine dinnerware with a sort of 
distressed or denim blue color.
This would be great for a 4th of July BBQ or just about anytime really.
Melamine is so lightweight and no worries about breakage.


I love the simple star design on these cloth napkins.
They could be used with the melamine dishes above or
 just some plain white plates.


A pretty hand painted pitcher to serve your favorite drink! 


Of course every holiday needs a banner.
 Isn't this one cute?


Chunky wooden firecrackers would make a great table display.


I love the unique design on this large wooden star.
You could hang this just about anywhere.


We can never have too many pillows so why not one with a cute
red, white and blue anchor to help celebrate independence day?


These next two little boats would look so cute together
and they could be used all year long too.





Isn't this wooden sign just so sweet?
I may really have to have one of these.

These signs are pretty cute too - oh the decisions!


Did you see anything you can't resist?
Like many of you, I'm trying to simplify and not keep buying 
more stuff but I just may have to allow myself one new thing to
celebrate the 4th of July this year.

  2. I haven't been buying anything lately. No room, and I have to pay for the computer I just got recently. I can't believe I don't have one bit of July 4th decor. I love all of these!

  4. Like you, I'm trying to simplify. I do like the World Market banner and napkins - they would be very easy to store and wouldn't take much space! I recently inherited my dear, little mother's July Fourth decorations. As I work through things at her home I'm sorting and deciding what decorations need to find a place in my home. You've inspired me - again! It's time to celebrate and decorate!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…

Strawberries Are Not Just For Eating

I don't know about you, be we sure do eat a lot of strawberries this time of year. I've also been noticing a lot of very cute strawberry inspired items for the home and I thought I would share some of them with you.
Here are some faux strawberries that could be used in some fun summer decorating. Don't they look real? You might have to warn people not to eat them!

Here's a sweet little vintage shaker - perfect for shaking some powdered sugar
on those fresh strawberries.

I am sure tea must taste better when using a tea kettle decorated with strawberries.

I love this strainer with it's black and strawberry theme - so original! source

Strawberry shortcake is a favorite of mine - so good! You can keep the recipe hanging right on your wall.

Transform Your Christmas Tins for Spring

Hi Everyone, I wanted to show you a quick and easy project that I just completed to repurpose some old Christmas tins that are no longer my style.

My inspiration was some very pretty scrapbooking papers that I had found at Hobby Lobby.  There are so many beautiful, interesting and fun papers to choose from that the possibilities are endless.

All I did was cut the papers to size to fit around the two larger cans and attached them with a small amount of white glue. I painted the lids with chalk paint as well as the smaller can. Here you can see how they turned out.

As I was editing these photos, child no.2 so lovingly pointed out that the smaller can looked out of place. I actually kind of agree with her but that's part of the beauty of this project. I could repaper or paint over what I have done at any time. I think they look good enough for now to use for spring and Easter decorating.

There are just so many possibilities of how you could transform these tins. I think some kind of…
