On the dining table, an old metal tool caddy holds red, white and blue pails bought in years gone by from the dollar section at Target.
Silverware is gathered in the two end pails, while the center one holds colorful carnations and American flags.
The stair landing, visible from our front door, has this arrangement above an antique trunk.
I’ve been told the rack is a french bread cooling rack.
I thought it was a candle dipping rack.
Other opinions were that it was an herb drying rack.
All I know is, I like it as wall décor, and I think it was a pretty good deal at $4.99 at the Goodwill
The mantel has had a little patriotic switcheroo, too!
I found this slatted wood piece on my walk,
took it home and gave it a good scrub down with bleach water then left it out in the sun to dry.
Some letter stencils and paint, some paste wax rubbed on when the paint was dry, and VOILA!… rustic, patriotic folk art!
The countdown is on
to America’s 236th birthday,
but in the meanwhile,
Have a Happy, Happy Friday
a Blessed weekend!
