RED WHITE AND BLUE MOTIVATION

After going on vacation for a week, I’ve been having trouble getting back into my blog.  But, there’s nothing like a kind comment to motivate me.  The Tablescaper commented that she came over to see my holiday mantel, and I didn’t have one posted.  Of course, I jumped up and started snapping pictures!  Thank you for the motivation, Tablescaper!

Well, I'm glad you took the photos to share this patriotic goodness. You know it all makes me smile!
Do you leave the patriotic things up all summer? i've don't that before, but them out for Memorial Day and put them away after Labor Day. The chef thought it was a bit too long. Think so????? LOL
Your table is wonderful. What fun plates. Who makes those?
Enjoy your Memorial Day. Looks like you are ready.

Laurie- goodness you still find time to decorate for all the holidays even with all you do! Not a red white and blue thing out at my house.
While getting ready for company last week I found remnants of Christmas and Easter still so I will not be winning any blue ribbons at my house!

Have a beautiful Memorial
Day!

You have great collectibles for every occasion. The little flags all over give it depth and whimsy!

Debbie said...

Well of course, I love every bit of it! I'm glad The Tablescaper prompted you. I always feel the need to scroll through your pictures slowly and pick a favorite thing or two, as if I'm shopping in a store. Today, my two favorite things are the dinner plates on the table and that banner.

But really, I just love the big picture of it all.

Hi Laurie,
Love your Memorial Day table. Those plates are just perfect and any excuse to bring them out! I was fortunate to find them on Ebay after seeing them a long time ago on your blog. Perfect for a patriotic table.
And yes, God Bless America! ~Delores
