Happy 4th of July!!

I just wanted to wish all of you a happy and safe 4th of July and show you some of my holiday decorations! The first pic is my front porch..................... The little sign on the shutter says It's Good To Be Home.
A chair with an antique bucket in the seat planted with hydrangas and flags(I know they are fake flowers but I kill everything, no green thunb here especially with the HOT weather).

My dining rm, the china cabinet with some hats & stars garland.....................
I love my red & white polk a dot dishes that I bought at Homegoods!

More flags in a vintage wicker vase........................



This is where I moved my chalk board it sits over my island between my kitchen and dining rm, did you notice to the right, my stencils I did on the beam, they go all the way around the beam. Please dont mind my terrible scratches on my door,I'm getting ready to paint it, I had a wreath there and with boys nothing is opened or closed gently, LOL!




and last but not least I wanted to show you my new find at Marshalls, I have wanted one of these for a while and so I bought it as a birthday present to myself(; Enjoy your holiday and be safe!!
Hugs~Kelly

It looks so beautiful! I haven't decorated at all for 4th of July! Last year I redid my whole hutch in red, white and blue just for a couple days!

I have that same beverage dispenser! Be careful when you wash it. I hit the base of mine on the sink and chipped off a big piece of it!

Everything looks so pretty!. I have the same candle holders you have on top of your hutch, right now they are black with amber glass but I was thinking about spray painting them white with the amber glass. I love your new blue walls too.
A very happy 4th of July to you too..
Enjoy your weekend,
Elizabeth

Farmgirl Paints said...

Cute!! You do such a nice job...love it:)

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Kelly, the chalkboard looks great there! I like the stencil too! I'm so relieved I'm not the only house that gets scratches like that. Some days I think my kids (and hubby too) are the roughest in the world with how things are treated!
Great 4th decorations, have a great holiday!

Bunny Rose Cottage said...

KELLY!!!!!!!!!!! I have been searching for one of those jars forever!! DID they have any more?? I would paypal you for it and the shipping. I just looked here at my Marshall's and they didnt have one :(

I LOVE your 4th decor!! So festive and perfect, just like everything you do!!

Hugs,
Amy

ceekay said...

Everything looks very festive and beautiful. My hubs would be so jealous for your beverage decanter. He wants one so bad...and I ask him why??? when do we have that many people over at the same time. But it is beautiful. Enjoy it and the 4th!!

Elyse said...

speaking of hot weather, how do you get so much painting done in the heat? i am so cranky when i am hot and am just so impressed at all you get accomplished especially knowing how hot it must be where you are.

again, kelly: you are the master!

happy 4th! and i almost forgot to mention how beautiful everything is!

You really make me want to paint my diningroom that pretty silver-sage color! It's beautiful! I love everything else, too!

Mary Ann said...

Thanks so much for answering my question about painting your shelf. Much appreciated!!
(I went back to Marshall's today, and they were all gone...but they called another store and are holding one for me!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.)
Thanks again!

Becky said...

Hi Kelly,
I wish that you lived closer. I would be tapping in to that wonderful talent of yours for my booth. Moved in and now I am getting ready to decorate. I will just camp out on your blog and soak in some inspiration today.
It is so nice to have such talented friends.
Hugs and have safe and happy 4th.

Brenda said...

I can't get a good look at those dishes. And we don't have a Home Goods. Unfortunately. Do you have them on your blog where I can see them better? I have been coveting white on red, since I won four red dots on white a week or so ago.

Kelly- I came home Tuesday evening and saw your note yesterday. Sure enough there was a package that Bill had not given me to open! I cannot begin to tell you how sweet the Nest letters are and how special they are to me. I had to convince the DR that I needed to go home because my nest is the place that I would heal best. He pulled some strings to get me here for which I am very grateful!!
I was so surprised at the size of the nest letters! I thought they would be 5 or 6 inches each- My they are lovely and I do plan a blog about them as soon as I vcan get off this chair and take some pictures! Bill has them nearby to where I can see them- I still cannot believe I was blessed to have won! Thank you!! Thank you Thank you!
i AM trying to figure out how I can get a few of my projects done while being confined to "house arrest" by my Dr. for 10 more days! I at least am getting caught up on my visiting my blogs!

My goodness you have lots of followers!
Thank you so much for visiting my site the other day.
I thought it would be fun for you to know that you have had influence over someone. I love the satisfying feeling of hearing the words, 'thank you' and thought you would too.
I will tell you when more has been done so you can take a peek.

Hey girl,
