Signs-Of-SuMMer - Patriotic Red, White, & Blue...


I've been dragging my heels with THIS SEASON'S
 Early Summer Vignette in our home entry,
  ~ UNTIL I scored this FaB Old 
ViNtaGe Bi-Centennial Illinois License Plate
 - Yesterday -
I'll have to say ~ 
*I LoVed the way it turned out!!!
~**ViNtaGe Items Tell A Story**~
I wonder who churned the ice cream in those buckets???
Was it hot that day??? -  Flavor???
Grandma's House???
Did someone fill the Star Tin with Cookies & bring it on a visit???
Plastic Stars ~ Probably hung on a Christmas Tree...
On and On...


Land Of Lincoln
Bi-Centennial Illinois License Plate


**~Things I keep in mind when creating
 Seasonal Vignettes at Home**~
I Want My Items to be seen/make a statement...
Keeping Them ALL in one place does this...
(Hence the Entryway Area in Our Home, Is Best) 
 Spreading them around the home looses that effect...  



Choosing items that relate to the Season...
Memorial Day...  4th of July...  Early Summer...
Makes me think of Flags... Red/White/&Blue
Ice Cream, Stars, Picnics, BBQs Etc.
ALL OF THESE CAN BE SEEN IN MY VIGNETTE
Using ViNtaGe Items...

 
HaVe a Great Rest Of Your Weekend!*!*!

~*Re-Purposing*~ for-the-garden...


F*I*N*A*L*L*Y
Finding Time To Work Around Our Home
InBetween Shows...
 Netted these 2 items at the LAST Elkhorn Flea!!!
Having fun using this Old Enamel Bucket with FaB PaTiNa
 - For My Dirt Planter Fill...
******
*~JuSt AwEsoMe METAL BiRdie Fragment~*
This will soon be adorning the center of one of my planters!!!
Most Likely was a "screen-door" protector...



Re-Purposed FUNNEL PLANTER on Stand
with wooden BiRdie...
FaB P*A*T*I*N*A... 
Can't wait for it to start filling-in!!!



 LoVe Using *CoCo Mat* in Old Wire Planters...
Re-PuRpoSed Round Metal Tin with **ShoVeL Handle**
ViNtaGe Rusty Iron HeadBoard  Backdrop...
(maybe "this-one" will get put in the dirt???)



 
ViNtaGe RuSty... CruSty...
IRON PLANTER
~BeSt Form/PaTiNa~
With Older Quality Pieces like this, it's worth the time to 
PRESERVE Their Naturally time~worn Patina...
I brush a thick coat of clear matte urethane on it,
to "seal-in" the chippy-paint patina...
  Even though this finish is matte, -it takes about 3 weeks
 of outdoor exposure to tone-down...  I do this every year
 to each of my quality outdoor pieces - whose patina is right
where I want it ~ with no further deterioration...
