Decorating with Red, White, and Blue
When summer starts and Memorial Day is fast approaching, it’s time to get the guest bedroom ready for summer guests. This year I added a blue and white duvet and pillowcase that I found out Thrifting with the Gals for only $18!
Decorating with red, white, and blue has all the vibes of summer! I’m just so drawn to it, how about you?
Do you love the beach? I’m really looking forward to soaking it all up this summer. The sun, saltwater, and I just got a new set of navy beach chairs, picnic cooler, and a folding table that I can’t wait to share with you!
I think I’m going to invite a girlfriend to join me on the beach sometime next week for a picnic. Stay tuned…
Our first guests outside the family are coming to stay with us here in this room later this week. They are friends from Vermont who also have family here in Coastal Maine.
Last year when they visited this guest bedroom looked like this. Which do you like better?

When summer starts it reminds me of the days when my dad would run off to play tennis every morning. Here I displayed all the old tennis racquets that he collected and played with over the years.
The vintage quilt at the foot of this bed reminds me of an old trunk hidden away in the attic filled with old quilts that I really need to get down and rummage through.
Oh, and the bathrobe hanging on the closet door was a gift from Schweitzer Linens. They make and sell the most beautiful luxury linens and more. Check them out and use the coupon code dabbling20 to save 20% off.
