Patriotic Love in Soft Pastels

The Patriotic holidays are just around the early summer we celebrate Memorial Day,  mid summer we celebrate the 4th of July,  and at the end of summer we celebrate Labor Day.     I usually bring out my Patriotic decor about the middle of May and leave it up til after Labor Day.     I never tire of  Red,  White and Blue but sometimes..... for a change......

Grillin & Chillin on the Porch

H loves to grill & chill on the front porch when we entertain friends and family.    Don't ask me why,  but for some reason we've never had a spot on the porch for him to grill.....he just drags out the grill and cooks on the driveway!

After Easter Mantel

Well,  I took down my Easter what do I do????    It's too early for a summer mantel...maybe something for Memorial Day?     I finally  decided to create a non seasonal....non holiday mantel in it's place. 
 The inspiration for my mantel came from a drive in the country that H & I recently took and a discounted 2019 calendar that I had  received from Amazon.  .

Some New Personality for a Neglected area of the Yard

The back porch gets the lions share of my decorating attention and the little corner of the yard that sits next door to it gets zip....nil....none!   H  rakes up the leaves in the spring and that's the last attention it gets for the year.
