Summer time! It’s my favorite time of the year. I love that I can do some fun decorating in our colorful and eclectic family room in progress. I’ll be sharing a tutorial for the gallery wall but the collection is all thrift store items from my decorating accessories stash. The colorful glass were filled with flower arrangements at our wedding reception nearly 8 years ago. My colorful candlesticks were an easy DIY thrifty transformation.
Sunshine, long days, festivals, carnivals, amusement parks…don’t you love that stuff?
Funnel cakes, elephant ears, cotton candy, candy apples, gyros, french fries, snow cones, popcorn, hot dogs,
Rides. Wait. I’m more of a merry-go-round than roller coaster type girl and avoid things called ‘tornado’ and ’tilt-a-whirl’ or anything that drops.
Concerts, bands, music festivals and fireworks.
Duck pond, ring toss, games, balloon animals, clowns, cheesy prizes, face painting and pony rides.
Step right up!
Everyone’s a winner!
