Red, White, and Bluejeans

Just a quick post this morning as I head out to celebrate with the family.  





 This isn't the table we'll be using today, but it's one that I set for my kitchen.  I would have put it outside, but.... you know... the rain rain rain came down down down...



Happy Independence Day 
to one and all! 



May we never forget that this freedom we hold so dear
 came at a price.





All freedoms do, you know.





May we celebrate the day with an ear to the past 
and an eye to the future. 





And today more than ever, may all our dreams be
 American  made.

Celebrating at Let's Dish!

Looks like a magazine shoot in your house...so pretty. We had to change plans too because of rain

I L-O-V-E your table, especially the faded blues! I'd like to just sit at it and enjoy the day! (Rain and all.) Happy 4th of July Debbie:@)

Love the thoughts and the pockets!

Love love love! Looks like pages from House Beautiful. :)

Sharon said...

My favorite was the jeans pocket napkin holders! This little cowgirl may have to *borrow* those!

Hope you have a wonderful 4th - and yes, may we always remember the price of freedom. Many shed their blood for the freedom of this country.

And One shed His blood for the freedom of this world.

GOD BLESS AMERICA...(and you!)

I love your thoughts on American made dreams! Great idea to use Levi pockets for your napkins. You have done a great job setting a Fourth table.

Not sure how I missed this post this morning. I just love your table. I can't believe how well the flower color coordinates with those plates and jeans. I would never have noticed the match. You really have a great eye. So happy we finally had a chance to visit today. Hope you've had a great Independence Day!! :)

Chatty Crone said...

I see your newly painted walls too - beautiful. And that was a gorgeous table setting. Love the jeans pockets too. Hope you had a great fourth! sandie

kitty said...

Love those jean pocket utensil holders, Debbie! One of these days I'm going to make those. I've been hoarding jeans for years for those "someday" projects. Happy 4th to you!

kitty said...

I forgot to say that I wish we could get some of that rain!

Dianne said...

Like everyone else, I love the jean pockets, but what I am crazy about is the that faded blue charger. Did you paint it? it looks wonderful with your oh so patriotic table! Dianne

elizabeth said...

Scribbler said...

Great table -- and GORGEOUS hydrangeas.

Rettabug said...

Your burnished blue jeans tablescape is just delightful, Debbie! I envy you those big BLUE hydrangeas...mine have all turned pink this year. I'll have to get some 'stuff' to add to the soil.

Yes, my entire blog was not accessible yesterday for awhile. I was having chest pains! I have no idea how or why it happened & I sent a multitude of emails to google support...no help at all, except maybe they fixed it from their end??? *sigh* Technology baffles & frustrates me so.

Hope you have a lovely weekend planned. It is raining here again, too. *double sigh*

Debbie, I remember the first time you posted those blue jean pockets. I thought they were genius, and I was going to remember to do them. That was before Pinterest-or at least, before I knew about Pinterest. I'm posting them this time, so I'll remember to save my old jeans. Did you paint those chargers? They are the perfect blue jean color. Hope you had a wonderful celebration yesterday. laurie

So cute! Love the jean pocket holders....Christine

Hi Debbie,
Thanks for stopping by for a visit by way of Vee's blog.
I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July. Your table is A-dorable!! So cheery and cute.

Tammy @ A Walk in the Countryside said...

Everything flows together so beautifully! I love the blue jean pockets!

Renae Simple Sequins said...

Sounds good to me, (that I may be able to inspire your thrifty fashion concerns) and THANK YOU for following me. Sandie is a doll, isn't she. My goodness your patriotic color scheme on your tablescape is so beautiful and fun. I never do that stuff; paper plates and cups is about my speed. hahahaha

Alycia Nichols said...

Shut the front door! This is really neat! I'm thinking this is one of my favorites of yours so far!!! VERY cool!!! What color are those chargers? They appear to be a light denim color on my computer. Or maybe that's just my imagination and old eyes playing tricks on me...I don't know. They just look to be a denim color which works SO WELL with the whole table!

I hope you had a fun holiday. Take care and enjoy your weekend!

Dayle @ A Collection of This and That said...

It's lovely, as always, Debbie. And please forgive me for not having been around in blogland much lately. It seems life has been spinning and I can't get off, but all is good.

Hope to get back in the groove, groove soon, soon.

The Decorative Dreamer said...

I love,love,love this! I adore the little blue jean pockets and I recognize those star napkins inside. The hydrangea centerpiece is perfect for the 4th. I wish the deer would quit eating mine. I have none this year! I am also very fond of the plaid plates and is that a painted charger with a bluish tint? Very cute table! Glad you had a great 4th!

Your table scored a 10 from Ralph Lauren, Debby. Sensational as always with great Americana flair. Hope your holiday was terrific with one of my favorite blog families.

bj said...

Love this table..one of these days, you're gonna hear a knock at your front door and I'm gonna be standing there, ready for a cup of coffee and something SWEET at one of your pretty tables. :)

Sharlotte said...

Great table Debbie. I love the jean pockets and your coasters. I bet you made both, right? I hope you didn't get a rain out for the fireworks!!
(Yes, very thankful for our freedoms.)

Kathleen said...

What a sweet table for July 4th and all summer! Love your pockets, and of course your hydrangea!
