Rust, White, and Blue - Our Rustic Gazebo Dressed Up for Summer!

Happy Memorial Day! May we never forget the sacrifice of so many for the freedom we have. 

This morning I decided to get out and decorate the gazebo for summer time! Some of my early spring flowers were already fading and it was time to straighten up the yard and replace a few plants. It's turned hot and dry, so I found a few more drought resistant (or so they claim) plants to fill in a few places. 

This rusty meat grinder has been attached to the gazebo rail for a long time. I'm not sure why or where it came from. Jeff may have put it there - I'm just not sure... Anyways, today I added a little succulent to it and now I'm wondering why I didn't do that a long time ago! 

 I recently picked up a big stack of buntings at a sale and dyed them to have a vintage and tea stained look. I hung one on the front of the gazebo and love the way it looks!   Rust, White, and Blue!
We are grilling tonight, so I'm fixing to go clip some of the herbs for a corn on the cob herb butter recipe!

P.S I'll have the several of the buntings at the Mineola Antique Fair next week, so you can get one in time for the Fourth of July or message me if you would like to order one to be shipped to you.

  1. I'd love to sit in the shade of your gazebo and take in all your lovely ideas! I remember grinding meat to make sausage when I was a little girl in the 40s. Now wouldn't I love to have that old grinder we used!!


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
