A Little "RED, WHITE and BLUE"

While I don't have any Red, White and Blue decorations for the 4th...I have this as my before and after as RED

Before and after WHITE

 BLUE...these are my Blue plates on the dining room wall. Most of them are "transfer ware" and sure make me Happy!!! I'd like to find another platter and maybe a couple more small plates.
I hope you all have a HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!!....I'm not sure what are plans are...maybe this year we will stay up and go watch some fireworks. Hubby is very tired in the evening as he works at 4:30 AM Tues-Fri for our health insurance, so he is usually in bed around 8:30PM...He is a good guy!
I did see an ad for estate sales this weekend and there is always the thrift store to check out...
so you never know what we'll be doing....maybe I'll be staining another door...after all...Twyla is coming soon for a visit!! You know she is walking to my house...more on that soon!!!
Take care.
Deb :)

Your red, white and blue decor for the 4th is very nice. Your window is decorated so pretty. We are having our grandson over and will go to the fireworks. Thank you for coming by and hope your 4th is a happy and safe one.

Hi Deb -
Love your re-do's. I have to ask. . . . did you paint them on top of your air conditioning unit?? :) Hope you have a safe and fantastic 4th of July!!
Can't wait to see what you picked up at the outdoor flea market and antique sale you went to.

debbie said...

Thank you for joining my blog under pressure to get an extra was already a follower of you for a short time....every day I learn about new bloggers I can't wait to meet.
I wish I lived close by you....I love the hunt and I love garage sales....maybe you might consider showing us some of your finds and what you want for them and you will probably have a lot of buyers.
Angel hugs
