Vintage Stars And Stripes

We've turned a corner on Summer! Hello July!

We'll be pulling out the picnic blankets and yard games this weekend. This dark wood vintage croquet set is one of my favorites. And my old vintage bunk spread has that ranch house vibe that makes me want to hang out somewhere near a Montana stream.

These crisp  blue and whites say farmhouse kitchen to me.

Isn't it wonderful how an old jar can take you places? The old graphics on the lid take me back to the General Store on Walton's Mountain.

Did folks find blue ink jars beautiful when they were a necessary item?

A jar full of Summer sweet tea fills more than a need for a good cold drink on a sweltering July afternoon.

Country Roses Blue Moon teacup takes me down some country road. . . .

I hope you enjoy a good old fashioned July ahead!
Ciao! for now!
