Free decorating by shopping the house is the best.
I was ready to change the feel around here from July to August.
Jumping the gun a bit, yes, but hey, it was time for a more serene look.
A fireplace mantel or shelf is always a prime candidate for a quick change.
July's mantel consisted of red, white and blue vintage books and my favorite little figurine. Having a boy and girl this has been one of my best finds.
A thrifted glass vase (or my size wine glass, haha, hee hee, I crack myself up) is filled with vintage art and craft supplies. RWB of course.
A postcard and luggage tag (thanks Deb) are propped with a wooden measuring tape. (Tape, stick? what do you call those folding things?)
Just a gathering of vintage pieces in the correct color scheme or theme can make a statement.
Patriotic July moves into sand and sea August.
Colors of the beach, and of course some vintage cameras, give that vacation feel.
Dried hydrangea and some grasses in an aqua jar are reminiscent of sea grass and water.
Simple and calming, oh yes and thrifty.
What vintage bits do you have at hand to stage a summer space in your home?
"Thrift is not an affair of the pocket, but an affair of character."
Yours in the love of vintage, P.
