For the love of all things Vintage

AS bloggers we LOVE to decorate for the different seasons....SUMMER is no different, the decor is lighter, more fresh flowers and plants...easy carefree living....Today i am going to show you how a few SIMPLE swap outs can change things...

Ya know how you peruse thru blogs and see something you TOTALLY love and then the stars align and VIOLA you have your own version of it?!?!?!? I was on Shabbyfufu's blog (this post right here - check it out....she had a GORG flamingo painting....I was at the neighborhood garage sale the weekend of the flea market and spotted this BEAUTY....see that price tag?!??!! .25 OH YEAH!!!!

I LOVE the vintage paint by number and wanted the frame to be a bit more elegant (I did toy with the idea of whitewashing it or painting Robins egg blue BUT I worried it would COMPETE with the print) SO GOLD It was!!! 

 (the pic above gave a lil preview of the changes) this pic BELOW is how that corner looked all winter....I think when the calendar says summer (even tho here in the midwest it's been nothing but rain) it's time to take the deers down....

So I swapped the yellow vintage shade for a light and airy linen shade (and added a creamy organza bow)

...touches of pink to tie in the "flyingmingos" as my daughter used to call them....

My throw pillow has subtle touches of pink because I colored it in with a sharpie (YES I did!!! see the post HERE I couldn't find the right pillows I wanted so I touched up my own)

I put up some patriotic decor for the 4th of July....

Added my deer skull (I KNOW I KNOW I just said take down the deer skulls BUT this one reminds me of that COVETED cow skull I want AND I added a flower crown)

Cleared off the coffee table.....kept it simple for summer

Kicked my feet up and enjoyed my handi-work!!! 

Do YOU change up your place for the summer?!??! If so leave me the link so I can check it out!!!
