Thrifty Decorating for the 4th of July


It's hard to believe it's July let alone that its the weekend of the 4th of July.

This year my decorating is very low key..we're still laying lowafter remodeling our bathroom last week. Most of my things were found at Goodwill or yardsales..
Let me show you up close..

My favorite find a couple of years ago was this plate stand..
I spray painted it a a cream color and change out the items all the time..

Willow Tree figures are the perfect accessory, I did buy this one in a dept store..still one of my favorites after all this time..the flag frame did come from Goodwill, brand new in the box for $1..

My daughter gave me the flowers and the frame is from Goodwill that again - I spray painted..

This birdhouse is one of my favorites that I keep inside to protect it from the elements..

This frame came from Goodwill, it was pink and I thought I'd spray it cream...didn't look so good so I painted it red and it's been this way for quite awhile...nothing better than adding a picture of our Storm!

 My go-to picture frame from Dollar Tree..added a patriotic picture and it looks great!
Wishing you all a great 4th of July!
I'll be back tomorrow for Sunday Blog Love so stop back and link up and
show what you've been up to!

I'm linking to these parties....
