Welcome to fall on the farmhouse porch! I realized as I was taking these photos that a year ago, we still didn't have a lawn or landcaping so it's especially fun to decorate the porch for its very first fall this year.

Farmhouse 4th of July Foyer Decorating

Pin It
Last week I did a little red white and blue 4th of July decorating in the foyer.  It all started because I finally cleaned my studio to the point that I was able to find the hooks and hang the giant, heavy mirror that used to belong my grandparents.  I can't tell you how good it feels not to have that beast leaning against the table in the dining room any more!

Patriotic Decorating Using American Flags and Red White and Blue Bunting

Pin It
Okay, I'll admit it....I'm decorating for the 4th of July even though it's only the middle of June. I found two bins of American Flags and Buntings in the attic and I'm screwing cup hooks into the siding! I'm in full-on, "I LOVE AMERICA and I'm proud to show it!" mode.  What can I say? It has been two years since I've had a home to decorate for the 4th and I've missed it more than I realized.
