Decorating for the Summer: A Patriotic Theme (Part 2)

Hello, and welcome to our great room
and dining area!

Continuing with yesterday's post,
here is our dining space...

The towels on the primitive ladder
were purchased at Hobby Lobby last week,
and replaced the beige and black ticking stripe
ones that I usually keep there...

I also bought the runner at HobLob,
and love the stars on it...

On the sideboard is a wooden plate which
had been painted by the artist mom of one
of hubby's son's friends,
along with some old transferware that I had.
The twiggy garland is also from HobLob...

Mr. Billy the Goat stands watch over our
fireplace most of the year.
Since the background is black, I didn't want
to use any navy blue here, so a minimal dose
of red seemed right.
This is the second year that I have put out
the little jars with (fake) flowers in them...

I've had the silver-glittered stars since I-
but they seemed right to dress up the
red ribbon that has white stars on it...

Well, I wish you could come over and see it in person.
We could have some sweet tea and cookies!

Have you done any summer or patriotic decorating this year?


  1. Dear Sue, it all looks so very lovely, and country living beautiful. It made me think of all the years when I could buy the American Country Home mag. in Denmark, with all the beautiful shown country style homes!! Here we do not have patriotic decorating stylte. xoxo

    1. Thanks! I like it in the summer because that's when most of our patriotic holidays are. I would love to know more about the decorating styles in Denmark! Hugs to you.
