Well, we’ve been having a great time here swimming, shopping and reading some books. The new summer schedule seems to be working out well so far. Later today my son and I are off to a farm to visit our animal friends.
But first, I wanted to show you what I did with my vintage shelf that I bought at a sale last week. And since it’s decorated for the 4th of July, I thought I’d better show it to your before the holiday had come and gone.
Lots of flags. Some Uncle Sams. Apple pies.
Speaking of flags, I love these little flags. I have a ton of them in different places all over the house.
For mosquito protection, I’m using my thrifted Hull planter as a tea light holder. With all the rain we’ve had around here, the mosquitoes are vicious this year.
The wooden folding chairs are part of the set I bought last year at a barn sale. I’m pretty sure they aren’t funeral home chairs, although that is what they remind me of. Haven’t seen any ghosts sitting in them, so I think we’re safe on that level.
The flag on the chair always comes inside. So don’t be sending me any hate emails about me disrespecting Old Glory.
I don’t think I’ve ever shown this particular deck that I put the shelf and chairs on. It is a little area right outside our bedroom.
It is as extremely small area though. I am squished up against the bedroom door in order to take this photo.
The original owners of the house pretty much made it just large enough for the 2 person hot tub (we can squeeze 3 in there in a pinch)
I don’t know what lives under there and I don’t want to know.
