Vintage reds and whites in the dining~kitchen area

Summertime is wonderful...love being outside...or inside...as long as we have friends and family over. Barbecuing...eating watermelon...drinking frosty cold glasses of ice tea! Yep, I love it!
The napkin rings are from thrifting in Palm Springs...I find quite a few placemats, napkin rings, dishes, etc. in Palm Springs. People love to get the latest thing and seem to donate last years treasures....woohoo!
Loved having our family over this week for dinner and setting the table for the holiday this weekend seemed appropriate! They know to ask "have you taken the picture yet?" Hahaha...they've been trained well!
Vintage pitchers and soup tureens are a key part of my kitchen decor, I love it when I find them while thrifting. Many vintage items~little chickens, roosters, dishes, linens all grace the table and dining room area. Can you tell I'm partial to red? Hahaha...love it...it is a happy color I think!


Hope your weekend is fabulous!

Love your table scape and the display of your pitchers on the shelves. Beautiful!
The flags look so sweet in your white pitcher. I also like your vignette on the sideboard. Very patriotic!

All your red makes for a cheerful kitchen and breakfast area. It all looks terrific. Your white pieces are wonderful. I like to pick up white pieces when out thrifting my self. Thanks for sharing your patriotic spirit. Happy 4th of July! ~Sarah
