Hey all!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Today I am sharing my red, white and blue home tour.  In years past, I didn't really decorate for the 4th of July.  But last year, my mom suggested adding a bit of red, white and blue using flags (post here), and this year I took it a bit further, adding some additional decor pieces.  

I went with the same decor for the mantle as last year - small American flags from the Target dollar spot in a glass frog found at the antique mall.  Then, I added a 'summer' banner that my mom made me to my 'chip clip' stand.  My mom had done this for hers back home and I thought it was so cute I needed one myself.

I kept things simple on the bookcase, adding in a small little wooden picture/sign found at a local boutique.

One of my favorite things to do with my chandelier is add little candle rings.  I found these red, cream, and blue ones at the same local boutique.  The star pillow was also a new addition for this year.  My mom found it at Walmart - only $9!  It's an outdoor pillow, too, so it would look super cute out on a patio or front porch.  I can't find it online, but it was located in the Garden section at Walmart.

This little basket was an antique mall find.  At only $5, I couldn't pass it up.

The buffet area got its dose of red, white and blue with a flag, and then the addition of a star to the wreath.  I had this wooden star garland that was a few years old from the Target dollar spot.  The stars were on the main string with a loop of string, so I just slid them off, and used an ornament hanging to attach it to this wreath, and a few others.  I really like how it adds a little pop of color without being too much!

Another wreath, another star.

The back - my third wreath/star combo, and then a flag in the flower pot.  

That's a look at my red, white and blue home tour!

Now I am curious - do you decorate for the 4th?  I don't think I did in the past because it seemed so fleeting.  But I've started looking at it as my 'summer' decor, rather than just for 4th of July decor.  So this will be up at least for the whole month of July, and honestly, probably through August, too, until I bring out fall.

Linking up with Andrea and Lindsay.
