A Little More Summer Decorating...and a Winner!

We finally set up the rest of our sunporch yesterday for summer...better late than never, I guess!  The porch is where I do most of my summer decor, as it is where we spend our time.  Last post I shared the dining side of the space, 
and this post I'll share the relaxing (napping) side...

This big vintage 48-star flag makes a big statement in the room! 


A couple of red and white gingham pillows 
and a quilt piece add color to the space...






I found this cute embroidery sampler 
at a garage sale thirty years ago...for a dime...


I love this simple decoration...a vintage spool with flag picks!





Thanks again for all of your entries for the ephemera pack...
the winner is...

Betsy of  My Salvaged Treasures

Until next time...

  15. The porch looks lovely, Linda. And that little vintage spool is brilliant, I have one inherited from my grandmother sitting in the sewing box, I should take your good example and put it to use.

  16. It all looks very ...summery: the colours, the shapes, the item locations.
    The american flag seems to have a lot of decoration value in your home.I particularly like the ceiling light fixtures and the blue, solitary stool.
