Memorial Day 2014

Well how was your long extended weekend?  Mine was great!  Today was a more relaxing day as we originally were going to see a State Championship in Savannah, however, the weather did not behave and the game was delayed for over three hours.  So we decided not to go and ended up selling our tickets there at the field!  Since we were close to Fresh Market (one of my favorite grocery stores) we did some shopping there and went to a local strip mall with some of my favorite stores.....Williams-Sonoma, Talbott's, and Coldwater Creek!  I did end up buying some lightweight tees for my summer wardrobe and almost bought a real cute Maxi dress but I just wasn't sold on it!  So I am still looking for that favorite Maxi!

We came home and cooked some hamburgers outside along with some broccoli salad that I made which is one of my favorites for picnics!

I also did a little decorating for Memorial Day on my front porch!  Didn't too much as I don't want to pull out everything out from storage since I have my home for sale and I have to keep everything PERFECT!

The blue hydrangeas were picked from my back yard.....the red white and blue bunting was a purchase from World Market.  I already had the blue/white ticking pillow......

I planted the Portulaca in the rusty watering can that I bought at Marigolds in Summerville, SC.  (One of my favorite stores).   I also wrapped the red white and blue bunting around the whiskey barrel.  

So what did you do over your long weekend?

Thanks for your visit!


  1. I must have missed that you were moving.

    I love the little banner you have on the chair and the wine cask.

  2. Sounds like you had fun. We went and loaded our booth. Then we had watermelon for supper. xo, olive

  3. We have a Fresh Market, but I haven't been yet. Any suggestions on what's good there? Do you have any favorites? Gosh, your porch looks great! I love all the color and it's decorated perfectly for the holiday!

  4. Hi Kelly,

    Your front porch looks so pretty; love that beachy blue with the white! You've decorated it so nicely with the flowerpots and bunting, too. Didn't know you were selling your home! I'm sure it will go fast!

    Good luck and have a wonderful Thursday!


  5. Hi Kelly,

    Not sure if you got the comment I just left, so I'll try again.

    Your porch looks lovely; love the beachy blue and crisp white, which is so inviting. Your flowerpots are too cute and the banners on the barrel and the chair are very pretty and patriotic! Didn't know your house was for sale; I'm sure it will go fast!

    Good luck and have a wonderful Thursday!
