Hasn't this week been fun with all the blog parties??? It's so inspiring to see all the great projects everyone has done. It's amazing how creative you all can be with a little paint and a drop cloth and a few accessories to remake your outdoor spaces!
If you haven't heard, I'm all about getting out the pretty things I have and using them more often. I encourage you ladies to do the same! Enjoy what you have. If you have kids, teach them to enjoy and take care of them too!
A few days ago my favorite place to sit and enjoy the outdoors looked like this after sprucing it up with a drop cloth curtain, new candle chandelier and some painted pots with new seasonal flowers. I love sitting in this shady spot on these warm southern summer evenings or in the morning before it gets too warm.
Since there's going to be A Vintage Summer party tonight over at Common Ground and A Shabby Cottage Summer party at French Country Cottage, I was inspired to bring out a few of my pretty vintage things.
This glass pitcher was my grandmothers, probably from the 1940's, but I'm just guessing.
The glass is vintage, too... many of you know it's called "Boopie" and was made by Anchor Hocking and was popular in the 1950's and 60's. The white napkin was a Goodwill find.
Now, I know the handmade throw/tablecloth was my grandmother's, but I'm not sure if she made it. She made some pretty amazing things, which I've shared with you before. You can see them HERE if you missed the post. I'm going to have to ask my sister if she knows who made this beauty. She has a good memory for remembering all the details of our family history. The pillow isn't vintage...it's from HomeGoods.
The large embroidered doily that covers the table was given to me by my mother in law.
Here's how the patio looks with a few vintage touches.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed seeing my vintage touches on my patio.
