Hi everyone! The past few days I've been changing things around just a bit here at the beach. I love summer but it drags on endlessly through October, so by mid-August I am ready for a change. But not a PUMPKIN change.
My bedroom is simple and mostly white except the blue painted Shaker blanket chest and blue six-board chest. So it lends itself to any color I want to feature. Here I have veered off my usual blua and white runway into a bright and cheery tropical look.
This textile is a recent thrifting find, a butter yellow washed twill, with a classic Ralph Lauren flag tag.
I think it's a tablecloth, but it could be a bed topper, used on top of my white comforter to collect Mo-hair.
Usually I use a white ruffled flat sheet. This allows me to lift off just the sheet to wash or shake out, and supposedly keeps dust bunnies of Mo down in check. [hahahahah]. Or I may cut the piece up for pillow shams that go on my stacks of pillows.
In the living room I put away all the red/white/ and blue patriotic accents. Everything is simple, cool blue and white.
The coffee table features a white ironstone platter with lovely candles, tropical scents.
Pineapple board for clutter, like remotes and wine glasses.
Nothing took much effort and having a small change can ward off the August doldrums. Though I imagine the bedroom will be back to blue and white by the next sheet change.
Friday Flea report: The tent had darling dishes for a quarter, but no. Inside a row of wonderful prim stoneware jugs, very large, 10.oo each. Not particularly old-old, but HUGE, like 10 or 15 gallon. Maybe Red Wing,c. 1920-40? They would look really great on my pine bride's bench but they were very dirty and I just couldn't pay 50.oo or cope with what might be luring inside. Jugs have those closed tops, unlike crocks. So, no. And---no coffee tables! I even had a few guys around ready to help me bring them home.
Mo had a sleepover last week. I got a text: " He insists on belly rubs!"
Later, "He took my space in the bed!"
Have a good weekend!
gone to the beach......
