Topic: Around the House
Occasionally I like to show the little seasonal vignettes I set up around the house for decoration. In the summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, I like to stick with a patriotic theme and go with red, white and blue, stars and stripes, flags and banners.
If you started outside you would see a bunting swag on the porch railing that sets the tone for what you will encounter inside.
Upon entering, this little grouping greets you in the entryway.
Then you would find this setup on the fireplace mantel. The letter blocks are a merry mix-up from my seasonal block set. I can't spell the word out properly for lack of a U. You get the drift, though.
At the base of the fireplace I put a little group of candles.
In the dining room I have a roll-top desk with this setup on top. The 'books' are all really boxes. The wooden star is from a set of 6 that you'll see more of later.
Next up is the dining room table. The table cloth is a blue round with a checked square over top. Red and white silk roses from the dollar store are arranged in a custom-made wooden bowl. I've added snippets of blue ribbon and a plastic butterfly pick. A few glass 'ice cubes' surround the base and I've placed two square blue candles to the arrangement.
In the china cabinet I placed the new lighthouses along with more of the wooden stars and some glass 'pebbles'.
The garden window in the kitchen feature my poseable wooden bunny and the last of the wooden stars.
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
Have an awesome summer!
