Happy Memorial Day!

Whether you are at the beach, lake, pool, grilling out at home or just "chilling", I hope everyone is going to enjoy the holiday.  I love any excuse to decorate for the "season". . .so here we go in a Red, White & Blue theme.  I have resurrected the red bottomless chair (I like red!) and filled it with an enamel pot and flowers (yes, "real" flowers would have been better but the porch/door faces south and nothing will survive that sun/heat). . .across the back is a small raggedy fabric garland.  Garlands are available in different length and color schemes.   The chair would also look cute in the garden.

It appears. . .

that I am "stuck" on painting white furniture. . .because it's (nearly) Summer?  because white sells better than color? (not always) or because I have an abundant supply of white paint?  Regardless, I have painted another desk white. . .and painted a plant stand white. . .and a wooden basket white!  Personally I think the white looks clean and well like Summer!  The three pieces are available at Troy Antiques.
I couldn't resist adding this photo of the dress/desk at the antique shop--great beach or cottage look I think.

Sweet Potatoes. . .

yes, this is a potato sack that once help sweet potatoes!  Now I have to admit, my Spanish is really rusty and we had to search for the Spanish/English dictionary in order to translate this.  The rustic sack is great for crafts or sewing--wouldn't it make a great pillow?  Or fill it with crumpled newspapers and sit in a corner--regardless, I am certain the buyer will find a special use for it.
