~~~Celebrating...The Red, The White and The Blue~~~


Hello Friends!

I have been doing a lil sprucing up in my home
and thought you might like to see.
During the summer I like to dress up my dining room
a little bit more in the colors of our Flag.
Now, you may already know this bout me, I have a deep
Royal Blue dining room walls...so that is my
backdrop, so to speak!
LUUUUUV this room still today even after the many years
it has been this color...I am a blue girl!
Okay, lets get started!
In the diddle of my table I have stacked some collected plates
and placed on top of a cake stand...
thought the colors were so purty all stack together!
The cake stand is then flanked by two Red Pier One Glass
containers and 2 milk glass candle holders.
Here's a couple of angle shots of how the table is all dressed up!
I have used many items that have been collected
over the years with the thought of mixing and matching...
as you will see.
I just LOVE to layer plates!
First I have RED chargers...(thrift stores and Big Lots)
Doller Store White Plates (Yep I said Dollar Store)
Blue and Whites were also collected mainly at TJ Maxx
My Beloved Johnson Bros Rose Chintz Cups were a recent
find on ebay!!!
Blue Glasses, another dollar store snag,
Milk Glass Goblets were another ebay snag.
So, as you can see, over time I have been gathering some
wonderful items that all mix n match!
Oh lest I forget...Silverware is also mix n match
from many various thrifting expeditions and treasure
hunting! Nothing matches completely
yet they go together!

Trying to give you a few differing angle shots of the table.

Another look at the center!

So...there you have it.
My Salute to the Red, White and Blue!

Thanks for joining me today!
Be Blessed
