Feels like summer

So if it is going to feel like summer, I will make my space feel like summer. So red, white and blue it  is. It is such a happy color combination and not just for the Fourth of July.  America is great! I know we have some problems but we are still a great county. I never take my freedom for granted. 

A nice dress with a real hooped skirt. I grew up in the South and all the wonderful, old homes have really big front doors. Hooped skirts is why. The chippy door behind her is from thr old Eugene Hotel. A piece of history with lots of stories I am sure.

It would not be a Repent style display without a hand painted sign by Sara.  Love it Sara!

A store display enamel tub that they sold pickles out of. Fabulous piece!

Cirque Francais - yes it is a vintage French poster advertising the local circus. "With your friends the clowns"! One of a kind!

A wonderful old martin house. I love old bird houses and have quite a few in my home. This beauty could be yours! So come down and see our new display. The Garden Show is still going on for another week out back at Monticello Antique Marketplace in Portland.  Better hurry!

The wheels go round...

Bicycle wheels - that is. Our new salute to summer and getting outside. Yes Sara painted the sign. Loved the colors so I ran with the black and red color scheme. The patio umbrella is the cutest I have ever seen - scallops and embroidered dots. The black table is perfect! 

Garden art - an old rusty bike with two baskets for flowers! Perfect on your porch.

I made some bike pillows and found some fun wheels!

The paper plates are not paper - but reusable plastic from one of my favorite artists Mary Lake Thompson. The bike towels would be fun for your summer kitchen. So get into Monticello for a little shopping. Summer is coming.

Bring more!

When one sells - I have another waiting - I hope. This primitive cubby, mail sort piece is now at Monti. The window piece sold. The beautiful wood tones of this are what makes it so special. Go have a look while it is still there:)

A metal porch planter to make you smile every time you come home. It is planted with a white verbena that goes strong all summer.

Another porch planter - a soft blue wheelbarrow planted with white geraniums and blue lobelia. Come see...summer is here!

More new furniture

When the new furniture sells - you bring more. This chippy piece is built around an old window. The back is galvenized tin.  A recycled beauty! The English Ironstone plates are sturdy and beautiful in their simple white. 

Westmoreland grape pattern pitcher and glasses. A hard to find color. Lemonaide anyone?

A large cement rooster. And those pink begonia baskets in the background - gardens and summer are calling...So get down to Monticello on Stark in Portland for some serious shopping!
