Bring Out The Americana Decor!

 The RED, WHITE, and BLUE accessories 
are out again for the summer Patriotic 
holidays. Here's the breakfast table. 
The 50¢ thrifted USA bear is helping with
the Americana theme.
 Everything is on the picket fence runner
 that I moved over from the sofa table.
 The antique red scale is in the center.
 These scrap ball are just a way to repurpose
 my old tennis balls. 
 Mixing red, white, and blue dishes. 
I knew the red $1.00 teapot would
see lots of use. 
 I save these mini jam jars to repurpose for
individual salt and pepper shakers. I can put
 a set at each place setting. The red gingham
tops are so cute! How could I toss them? 
 I just use a nail to punch the holes.
They fit nicely in this Longaberger business 
card basket which makes passing the S&P 
easy. It's all just the right size for the bear. 

Cheers!

MAY Sofa Table

Just moved a few things around for May.
 Using different combinations of things I have:
porcelain balls, clear Ball jar filled with cobalt
 pebbles. Click on any of the blue highlighted
 words to see the blog post. 
The large Longaberger baskets hold tons of
napkins collected over the years. Posted 
about that HERE.
 It's fun to gather this-and-that from around
the house, storage, or patio to create a 
different vignette in just a few minutes.
I'm keeping my wine glass charms handy in 
this little basket. Post HERE and HERE.
The pothos is THE easiest houseplant ever! 
I have several in the house and they are 
indestructible. If you need something alive
and green, this is the plan for you.

Cheers!
