Red, white and blue for August

This appropriately summery collection was, of course, inspired by...Niki's Nostalgia at the Stone House calendar page for August.
It all goes very nicely with the mini-bunting I made last autumn with IKEA offcuts...Look at this fantastic little painted shell in Niki's collection.
I'm afraid my version isn't anything so special.
But it's a lovely little holiday-style collection for August.
I look forward to turning over my calendar page so much each month!

That's a great way of displaying your treasures each month. Brings each to the forefront for a bit of attention eh?

This is such a good challenge, isn't it? I do look forward to seeing what you come up with each month.

I had such plans for a summer display but with all the work going on in the house, didn't get around to it. Ah well, there's always next summer! xx

Everytime you share this with us I intend on starting something like this also, then I forget..It's a great idea so I must get on the ball. Thanks for sharing each month.
