My weekend was filled with barn sales, estate sales, garage sales... some gardening... some family time. It was busy, yet enjoyable and relaxing.
(this was the actual site of a Barn Sale I visited in Medina, Minnesota...isn't it wonderful?)
I don't know if it was the barn itself or all the red, white and blue vignettes I saw at every single place I stopped (I almost had to check my calendar: did I missthe 4th of July or something? !?) but I was feeling it!
When I got home, I decided to "bring out" the reds in my screened-in porch ...
If you recall, last year I painted all of my white porch wicker (boring and faded) black, and found a truckload of floral pillows at a local church rummage sale (for just $2 apiece!).
(the red/white felted wool/cotton knit throw was another recent find... for $3.99...homemade and beautiful.... I was going to save it for the chilly evenings of Fall, but since it fit the theme, it came out to stay)
What's fun about these pillows with their array of colors is that I can highlight any of the colors with accessories for a different look.
My vintage tablecloth collection is put to good use during the summer months, as I like to use them on my porch tables for a punch of color.
Another Barn Sale find were two vintage smaller flags, which were mounted on dowels and tin stars added; perfect for my deck flower pots!
My porch is festive, patriotic, and totally ready for the 4th of July!
