Friday Chit Chat

Good morning,
I am up ( have been since 4am). What the heck is wrong with me? :)
Getting ready to clean up a little and run some errands.
It's Friday and that means the Farmer's market is on the Courthouse square.
Of course, we are expecting some rain too.
National road yard sales start tomorrow.

I have been doing some summer decorating at the 'ol homestead. :) tee hee

I got this huge crow a year or so ago. I just love him. You always see wreaths or little plaques on doors,so not original, I mean how cute are they?! lol
I wanted to be different and use something big.

On my tv armoire. Uncle Sam is waiting to wave the grand 'ol flag.

The small "U.S.A." sign to the left of Sam is from the Dollar Zone( of course, $1.00) . I wish I had a bigger one. I don't think that one shows up real well.

Another pic of the living room in some light.

This is a close up of the shelf behind the sofa.
The 3 tea stained flags came from the Dollar Zone too.

You got it, $1.00 each!
The crock they are in was literally dug up last summer. Crock to the left ( with my favorite pantry cloths in it) was in a freebie box at a yard sale. :)

Barnwood ladder beside door- also draped with a faded flag and primitive Americana stocking.

Do you have any flags in your decorating?


  1. Kim,

    Your living room looks GREAT painted that color. You recently did that right? I LOVE your garden pics, post some more. You have a knack for gardening!

  2. Everything looks wonderful Kim! Love the patriotic looks that you did!

  3. I love your summer decorating scheme! It's supposed to rain here, too. I wanted to get some yard work done, but we'll see.

  4. I have flag outside and then a wooden one at my door. Yours looks great!

  5. Everything you've done looks really nice. I love little touches of partriotic treasurers tucked here and there. Personally I don't have much displayed along those lines but I do have baskets of Geraniums with tea stained flags tucked in. I like the look.
    Prim Hugs,

  6. Everything looks great!

    I love the freebie crock! WOW!

    Thanks for sharing,

  7. cute decorations. everything looks great! love the crow on the door!

  8. I have flags on my back porch draped over an old metal chair and one over my wicker porch swing too! Dawn

  9. First off, your door crow looks great! But, what I really love is your arrangement with the old time radio! I have one of these and was wondering how to decorate with it. I have prims, but mine never look good when I decorate with them. LOVE what you did with it!
