Red, white, and blue for any season…


Red, white and blue are my favorite colors.

Not just for fourth of July, but in any season, they are my go-to colors.

Add a little beach-y gray and I’m good to go.

Quite some time ago I saw an enamelware bowl with some lavender sachets in it in a photo on the lovely blog Fiona and Twig.

So I kept my eye open for a similar bowl.

On one of my ”pop in to the Goodwill for a few minutes 'cuz it’s right next to my grocery store” trips I found this one for only $1.49.  Score!

My sister asked me how I store all the “treasures” I find in my little house.

(Our house is only 1400 square feet.)

I frequently clean out my décor closet, (or “crap” closet as someone I know calls it),

and try to take as much or more to the thrift store as I bring home.

If its not my style anymore, out it goes.

The only décor items not stored in that one closet are the holiday decorations stored in plastic totes in the garage.

I am already decorating for Christmas in my head.

I still get “butterflies in my tummy excited” like I did when I was a kid for Christmas.

All photos today edited simply with one layer of Kim Klaussen’s Phoebe texture on soflight mode at 80% opacity.

It’s a beautiful soft texture…love it!

Thanks Kim!
