The American Flag

Happy Independence Day to you and yours!


When freedom, from her mountain height
     Unfurled her standard to the air,
She tore the azure robe of night,
     And set the stars of glory there!
She mingled with its gorgeous dyes
     The milky baldric of the skies,
And striped its pure, celestial white
    With streakings of the morning light.

The American Flag
 by Joseph Rodman Drake



I'm thankful to have been born an American! 
 God Bless the USA! 





Blue Transferware in Patriotic Color Schemes & Summer SALE

Last year I posted twice about rooms decorated in red, white and blue, plus transferware   HERE & HERE.  With 4th of July only a couple of days away I thought I'd share some additional rooms beautifully decorated and chock full of the patriotic color scheme.
And transferware.

There's something about blue and white china set against red toile…. 

…especially when the china is transferware.
If you ask me anyway-

But then there's blue transferware and red checks…

Wait, one more.


Blue transferware can be paired with plaids…



or with with red, white, and blue toile.




A touch of blue transferware looks fresh with white ironstone china.



Blue transferware is fun with polka dots,

and fresh with modern florals.



It is perfectly at home with stripes

If you have trouble deciding how to use blue transferware, or you love lots of patterns like I do, just mix blue transferware with all of the above. 
All at the same time. 



Blue transferware looks great with everything!
