You are so creative and you have a great eye for vintage items. I am good at expanding on the ideas of others but just not good at seeing the potential in the original. I love the decorating for the red white and blue holidays.



I swear that spun head gal is your "mini-me"!!! She looks like you! I can't wait until you show us your 4th decorating. Who knows maybe the Uncle Sam photo will reappear. So cute!


Gave me another reason to decorate!
I do holiday or seasonal decorating but not much for the 4th. You got me to decorate for St.Patty's and I'll have to add the 4th of July now. I have enough spunheads from you for a collection of the 4th!
Love your collection by the way.I'm off track now since I'm already running around looking for red, white and blue things LOL.
Thanks for sharing Laurie :-)

Musings from Kim K.

As soon as Josie's flamingo party with my family is done Tuesday night, the red, white and blue comes out! You always know the best way to display your creations. Great eye! Great ideas!


I do the same ting - love the red, white and blue packaging. I just added two great old Domino boxes to my collection. Can't wait to pull out all my Patriotic stuff - it's almost time!

(That little George Washigton is quite possibly one of the cutest things EVER.)


I think a trip to PDX (whether or not the Airman comes there) is going to have to be on my Bucket List so I can see all your FUN FINDS! Love, love, love that Sailor Boy! SALUTE!



I just looked again and I think I owe George an apology. I thought he was a patriotic gal. I don't know if it was the curls, the rosy cheeks, the puffy shirt or the swishy skirt that made me think this-probably a combination of all of the above.
I still thinks he/she looks like you-which is a compliment!
I love to use my large "funeral" baskets for displaying flags-I will be keeping my eyes open for your Tupperware holder, great idea.


Such wonderful finds. Love the Air-Bon mint tin, and the barbershop bottles!! I am so ready to start decorating with the red, white, and blue!! xo Heather


Oh Laurie,
If you ever tire of any of those amazing red, white, and blue items please feel free to ship them on over to North Carolina!! I promise I will give them an awesome home. My order arrived today!! I am so happy to finally own a Magpie original Piece, 4 of them now!!! I am so in love with all of them.
Thank you again for all the goodies


These simple things...they make me smile over and over again. I sigh knowing that I have seen something grand today...smiles...Renee


Love love the way you see the possibilities!


Wow, you really have an eye for using these things you've found! Amazing displays! Love them!


you have such a knack for turning the ordinary into extraordinary. Love it! BTW, did you decorate the cool metal stand yet? Can't wait to see what you do with it!
