A Little Bit of Red White and Blue.....

I've been decorating my office with a little bit of patriotic red white and blue this week. It's tiny, only about 10 feet wide and not much longer, so I only took pictures of the right side of it...and truth be told, the other half of the room is a total disaster area right now, with boxes stacked with things to be listed in my shop... I can barely get to my book shelves that are on the left side of the room right now, so I'm sparing you the whole room view....(I need to do some organizing over the weekend)...

Anyway, I didn't do a lot of decorating, but my wicker sofa got a change of throw pillows and the seat cushion got wrapped with some red floral fabric (a tablecloth).

There's a bit of a story behind my wicker was a $40 yard sale find from several years ago and I remember how much I had to have it... even though I didn't even have a way to get it home! My darling husband ended up bringing it home tied to the top of the car. I know he doesn't care to relive that moment in time, so I won't go into much detail, but I will tell you that it did fall off the car, before he got onto the highway with it.... it survived with only some minor scrapes and scratches and thankfully he survived too and he did get home with it. I secretly think, to this day, it's the reason he doesn't care for it that much. But, as you can imagine, I love it and it's one of my favorite pieces of furniture in our home. I don't think I could ever part with it, because of the effort my sweetheart made to get it for me.

 The dark brown on the wicker was dark green when I found it, I eventually painted that area dark brown, so I would be able to use any color of pillows I wanted with it and change things with the seasons. I've had it in my office for a while now, but I don't think I've ever shown it here on the blog. There's just enough space on the right side of the room walking in the door to put it beside my white storage cabinet. I did have a chair and small round table in that space, but I really never used it and I needed a different place to put the wicker, so in here it went. I like it better than the hard chair and table that I had in here...It's comfy and I actually sit in here now and sometimes read and drink my tea or coffee...

I've used my little metal garden gate to display some of my vintage red, white and blue hankies along with an American Flag ....this hangs on the wall behind the sofa...

Have you done any decorating for the 4th of July? Do you have any special plans for the holiday?
I hope you all have a fun and Happy 4th of July!
