Finding rusty old junk is fun! Nevertheless, I have found that no matter how much "stuff" I find and collect, only God can fully satisfy my heart. Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Happy Labor Day, Goodbye Summer!

Happy Labor Day everyone! I thought today would be perfect for showing my little patriotic vignette I created for the Fourth of July since I missed posting in July and red, white and blue is a Labor Day theme as well.

For summer I like to put out my Uncle Sam and patriotic touches to last though Labor Day. Although I love shabby-junky-chic, I always keep some primitive things around the house to create a welcome home-spun feel and it works so well with my ironstone and farmhouse items.

Vintage birthday candles to celebrate America's birthday on the Fourth.

Summer isn't summer without bubbles! Love this vintage jar with original contents.
I found this antique scrap at an estate sale. Someone long ago took the time to hand stitch a tribute to  one of the most famous hand-stitched pieces in history!

I used it to temporarily cover an old stool.

Farewell summer! Bring on the pumpkins!
