Red, White and Blue Decor

Happy Fourth of July weekend, friends! We are home in NJ and have plans to hang out by our pool and BBQ, just a quiet day and I'm looking forward to it. I do have some patriotic decor pictures to share with you today. Let's start in our kitchen.
I've been collecting so many of these pieces through the years and it is fun to pull them out and put them together for holidays. I haven't been shopping for home decor so this is all stuff I already had. I found the banner at Sur La Table last year and the adorable dish towel at a gift shop in the Adirondacks a few years back.

I like to pull out a cookbook and display a fun page that coordinates with the holiday. I enjoy reading and collecting cookbooks and this allows me to appreciate them a little more. Some of my favorites are by Susan Branch, Mary Engelbreit and Roxie Kelly. I found a few of Susan Branch's seasonal books (Autumn and Summer) at a used book sale last week and it made my whole weekend! I now have copies of those books to leave at the cabin.
I added some red check plastic plates to the hutch. I love mixing colors and patterns like these. The banner on the hutch is from the Target Dollar Spot last year.
I made the wooden flag that is hanging over our fireplace many years ago. I take it out and display it every year.
This year, I also brought some of my collected things to decorate the porch at the cabin. Yes, I am forever transferring seasonal things between the 2 houses but I enjoy it so it's not really a burden. Although my family might not agree when they help me pack or unpack the car! I keep my seasonal items like these on open shelving in the unfinished part of my basement. That way I can see everything and "shop" my shelves. I keep Fall and Christmas in bins in the attic. I wish I had enough room to keep that stuff in the basement too because it's so much easier too see what I have.
This year is different in so many ways. No big parades, parties or fireworks for us. But I hope you find a way to add some joy to your day this weekend. Happy Birthday, America! Let's all make a wish for better days ahead.

  1. So happy to see your last couple of posts. I've missed seeing your lovely home. Congratulations on the purchase of the cabin. How exciting! I love the sweet woody car and canoe on the dishtowel gracing your sink. And the banner is so fun and festive. Your hutch is so stinkin' cute. What a nice collection of plaid tins you have. Thanks for sharing it all.

  2. Oh, and I also love Susan Branch, Mary Engelbreit, and Roxie Kelly. I think I enjoy their drawings even more than the recipes!

  3. Lovely as always!! Question - your fireplace looks about the same size as mine. Could you please give dimensions? I ask because I'm also considering flanking the fireplace with bookcases as you've done. How high are the bookcases? Were they especially made for this setup or are they cabinets? Thank you so much for your assistance/guidance on this living room pursuit! Happy 4th of July weekend indeed!

  4. I've been reading your blog for a little while. I wish you had a new post at least once a week. :) I just wanted to tell you that there are some aspects of farmhouse style that I like, but I love color, which farmhouse style does not have. Your style of decorating is more my style and I love looking at your home pictures. Red is my favorite color and I incorporate it in every room of home home.

  11. Everything is very adorable. Saw a picture of Christmas decor in your kitchen on FB and Kris from Junk Chick Cottage told the name of your blog. So glad I popped over. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  13. Thank you for sharing your perfect kitchen!! It's so fun to see all the different decor throughout the year. This is my first time visiting your site--I saw photos initially on Pinterest and fell in love with your kitchen design. So much that, after looking at dozens of ideas (and knowing I want a farmhouse sink), it's what I'm going to incorporate into my own kitchen remodel. Your photos are inspiring! Thank you again for sharing!
