Summertime Decos

The best thing about our apt entry is that we have an area with a shelf and are able to include seasonal and/or holiday decorations. This is our current display. The expense was minimal as all items were purchased from a local Dollar Tree store. 
All that's missing is sand, which would be a bit messy. I'm not saving the beach toys and when the season ends, everything goes to our youngest granddaughter Lilliana. The flip-flops are too big for her and will be given to a young friend here.
These flags were formerly displayed on the porch and in the yard of our VA home. A friend gave me the idea of using dowel rods to them hang on the wall. (Thanks, Marty).

Percy Penguin and Phineas Frog, are also from our VA home and donned patriotic colors, to celebrate the July 4th holiday. Their "outfits" are dollar store finds too.


During the our 12 years that we lived in VA, we always decorated our home. It's fun being able to able to continue that "tradition" despite being apartment dwellers now. We also enjoy the fun comments and smiles from residents passing by our door.

Do you decorate the outside of your home as well?

Sue changes our little porch with the seasons, but she may not quite reach your levels of enthusiasm and commitment. :)

Lovely decorations! I just put a Christmas wreath on my door at the first of December and leave it up until December 31. It has little white lights in it - I love it.

Nope, no decorations here... I let my garden decorate my little corner of the world - currently Day Lilies and phlox. Crape Myrtle starting, couple oleanders, butterfly bushes, caladium, geraniums, impatiens... that sort of thing. Brings lots of butterflies!
