With the 4th of July right around the corner, I started thinking what kind of decor I had stored away. My stash of seasonal items, located in my laundry room closet, are out of sight. Every time I open the door my kitty, Bootzi, wants to go in and check out boxes and things I have on my shelves. I have to close the door behind me if I want to dig around without her. You see, once she got locked up in that room all day and all I hear was a very faint meow that let me know she was in there.
I like to bring a touch of whimsy to my decor because it makes me happy and cheerful. I found some red, white, and blue bandanas, 2 nutcrackers, and a couple other items to give the dining room a whimsical feature. I sewed the 2 bandanas together and steam press them for a crisp look. I came across 2 pineapple statues and the white color was just what I was looking for. I like to move my decor around to different areas and they look new and gives me that extra touch of whimsy.
I always have seasonal decor and my stash seems to grow year after year. I donate items to our local Salvation Army but find myself going there always bringing something home. I have found some great treasurers there. Just today, my 86-year-old neighbor and I drove to one close by and I bought an angel blowing a trumpet dressed in red, white, and blue. The angel reminded me of my whimsical angel weathervane on the Queen’s Studio.
I love to shop at Hobby Lobby, Old Time Pottery, and Michael when they have sales and coupons. I buy decor for my home that I usually can’t afford otherwise. I find now my taste has changed and I like to recycle household items to give them a farm style look.
