change is good

we just put color on the walls!

grey is a color right :)
both our son's homes have rooms with grey walls
and we have always liked how it looked,
so we copied them!



 not sure about the grey on this wall in the kitchen.

change is good and so far so good.

happy 4th of July!


hope you all have a fun and safe holiday!
this is my little homage to the 
wall in savanah, georgia.
you can see the post here.

i didn't have quite as large of space as the bakery, 
so mine is a scaled down version.
i tried to use what i had and if i didn't have it make it.
flag- .60 fabric remenant at resale shop
pie pan - $1
scale - $5
print - ? purchased years ago
homemade sign - homemade by me :)
pie banner - also homemade by me







below are a few more sparkles of red, white and blue
 around the house.

bags packed at the elkhorn flea market

look at what i got at the elkhorn flea market!
look familiar?
see previous post.
it has to be the same set of luggage on the album cover photo.
the price was $20 for all 3!
i was looking at the set and before i could say anything,
the lady said she could let the set go for $16.
sold!
i use vintage suitecases for storage
and for travel.
below are a few fun items at the elkhorn flea, always a great time.

my son is into snowmobiles, 
but i think only a prince could afford this sign. 


essential 50's advertising piece.

my favorite fair ride when i was little.

 heavy duty trophy.

and the trophy goes to this for
"most creative vintage flea market cart".
sorry for the bad pic, had to hurry and take it before it passed
me by.

 wouldn't this be fun to use this awning indoors.
kitchen range hood?


 what's up with the crazy prices?

goes without saying, 
love.
can see micky and goofy pulling this
on one of their adventures.

well, got to pack up my bags up and head for home,
as the clouds are a brewin'

bags packed?

 hope you are all having a fun summer,
maybe have your bags packed 
for a fun trip?
(sorry about the price tag on the album,
if i took it off it would tear the cover,
why do they do that!)
just adding a little summer color to the
spare bedroom.
