Hello Dear Readers!
Summer is all about wonderful vacations to the beach or to the mountains
for those who prefer the beautiful vistas and fresh mountain air . . .
or your very favorite place to be . . .
perhaps a getaway you travel to every year,
or a new adventure to an unexplored place.
Other than travels, I find decorating for summer is fun.
Whether you prefer decorating with shells
or the colors of the summer holidays
like the 4th of July . . . you can gather what you have in your home,
without having to purchase seasonal decor from your local craft store.
I chose to go with a red, white and blue theme
to adorn the sofa table this year,
thus I chose, Decorating for Summer with Transferware
I have a collection of blue and white transferware and a few pieces of red
transferware, so I gathered some pieces for a red, white, and blue summer theme.
My latest transferware purchase is from my fav consignment shop,
Always Home in Durham, N.C.,
which is this sweet little Mason pitcher. I actually have a larger one that I got from
my friend Martha that is in the “storage abyss” … this little pitcher
was too sweet to pass up!
I purchased this sweet little tureen a couple of months ago from the same collection.
The Blue Willow is also from “the shop”
To add a bit of that patriotic flair, I added a grain sack star to the lidded jar.
It’s a very classic vignette to enjoy for the summer.
A few changes to this vignette is easy . . . to achieve an entirely different look,
take away the red and add white accessories with shells and starfish
and maybe a piece of coral.
In the meantime, I shall enjoy this classic vignette
to celebrate our Nation’s Independence Day.
I wish you all a most fun and safe 4th of July!
