I'll share what few 4th pictures I have. Being gone so much, I haven't done a lot of decorating, but since I am home for a while, I got into it again.
Michael carved this years ago and he is my favorite Uncle Sam.
Guess that does my 4th of July decor! Not much, huh?
The redware was on the shelves over the sink, in the kitchen.
Well this is over the sink now. I wanted these shelves over the sink, to make it look like a piece of furniture. Way too much stuff.
I also played with the mantle again. I have a hard time decorating my mantle for some reason. It is a challenge to me.
I love antiques, as you who have been with me on this blogging journey know.
When I was dusting yesterday, I was thinking about some of this furniture and thinking how someone before me had taken care of it and treasured it. I do my best to do the same for the next generation of owners. One of the things I truly love is chairs. When we started in the antique business I wanted to specialize in chairs, but Curtis wouldn't go for it.lol Well, I still love chairs and have them every where. A few years ago, Deb and Michael found a set of four from about 1840. I had to buy them. Curtis said where will you put them and I said here and there. Eventually I added more and they were used around the table. However a year or so ago, I went for sturdy and comfort and bought reproduction chairs, but I digress, however yesterday while dusting,(I have been doing a lot of that since I can now see dust) I really looked at the rung on this chair and had to share it with you.
I wish each of you a wonderful fourth of July, spent with family doing the things you all love to do. God Bless America
I am so happy you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
