Summer is upon us July 4th
is right around the corner.
Time to gather all your Red
White and Blue Vintage Goodies
and create little special Groupings

I really think all these little Vintage treasures I've gathered
do make you think of July celebrations.
I am sure you all have some bits and bobs
around your home you can find to create
your own Cottage Chic Summer Displays!

I just did a very quick look around my Studio
to find things that say to me Summer Vacation.
There was always those summer Birthday Parties
and lot's of B&W Photos taken jam packed  full of memories.

And then with Summer there are lot's of
barbecues and corn on the cob, usually the
fruit trees are plentiful, which means time for
some homemade jams. 
I just love my red bakelite ladle it works perfectly
for filling my Jam Jars.
And that other Utensil is a Angel Food Cake Slicer.

These little red and white kitchen goodies
make for a perfect Cottage Kitchen Summer Display
Go ahead and  look around your House I 'm sure you can come
up with some outstanding Displays of your own.
There are no Rules be Creative.

I sure would love to see your arrangements, so send me a photo or 
Post a picture on your Blog. It's all about what makes you feel
good. You know that feeling we get with our vintage treasures
that "Warm Fuzzy Feeling" It's a comfort thing.
