Summer Lovin'

Woke up yesterday and just felt inspired to lighten up the dining room for summer. Pulled out an old white tablecloth and topped with a red check smaller one. Shopped the house for the summer centerpiece. Red and white just screams picnics and summer time.


To add a little height, I grabbed a small table top stool.


Added some polka dots and a candle. Topped it all off with my red spatter ware coffee pot.



Can't wait to show you what I did in the dry sink.


Changed up all the decor in these two rooms so I'll be back .

Looks so good! I love it when those "inspired moods" come upon us. I often like to redecorate. It takes a special mood, and pulling together a theme or a color! Looks great!

It really does look summery. All you need is to stick a few flags around and you're ready for the 4th of July. Hope your mom's day was great. Mimi

I could spend all afternoon in your room. I love it! The tomato can vase is the icing on the cake--my Mom would put zinnias in tin cans every summer.

Loved the layering of the table clothes. I have several small quilts and never thought of using them on the table over a larger tablecloth. Thanks for the inspiring idea!
