Trending Now.....Stamped Pillows

Who doesn't love a good pillow? In our house, they are mainly used for whacking, jumping and sliding. But a girl can dream can't she? Yes, I dream about the day that my pillows will actually STAY where I put them.

If you are in the market to change up your look without spending a fortune, try stamped pillows. They evoke a worn timeless appearance and the possibilities are ENDLESS. I love these highly graphic pillows from Bark Decor on ETSY.

If those are a little too OUT THERE for you, try these:

This pillow was a simple spray paint job. Think of the possibilities!

I have a few DIY stamped pillows I am working on and will share soon. It is never too late to go CRAZY with your pillows!

Red, White & Blue

Summer is a great time for going patriotic. If you are like me, a total house transformation is OUT of the question. I love seeing all the magazine spreads of Patriotic Gone Wild homes, but in all reality, 99% of us can barely pull off the cookout, let alone redecorate a WHOLE house.

I basically have two looks that I can handle....Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. In light of adding to my spring/summer look, I found a few items that can be incorporated into year round decor or require very little setup/storage.

I love that this flag can remain all year as vintage artwork, but works right into your patriotic decor in the summer. DOUBLE duty!! A few pieces of scrap wood, stencils and paint and you can make one for very little.

These pillows are easy enough to STORE or WHIP out and throw on a chair or better yet, your porch.

This art piece doesn't scream patriotic, but it could, if you paired with these other items. Great to leave out all year!

And if you are looking for something to keep the kids busy, tissue paper pom poms are cheap and easy. Or you can grab these at the POM POM shop on ETSY. What's a PARTY without Pom Poms?

What are your favorite red, white and blue items?

Trending Now...Naval Signal Flags

Vintage Naval Flag Craze! I admit, I have been SWEPT up in the craze and these babies can be PRICY. I found some great deals on Ebay, but lost out on the bidding. I really wanted one for Boston's room above his bed, but apparently, I need a tutorial with Ebay bidding.
