I know some people are talking about Christmas in July sales and the fact that
Hobby Lobby is already selling fall décor items. But not me. For me, summer
isn't over until the first leaf falls. I guess I'm in the minority, but in light of
the Midwest winters we've experienced, I'm not all that antsy for
old man winter to arrive. To the contrary, I'll be basking in all things summer for
a few more months. And yes, it's still terribly hot here in late September!
So today I wanted to share with you some vintage-inspired serving trays my
husband picked up for me at Sam's Club. Yes, Sam's Club. I think all three
cost around $10.00 in the back-of- the-store clearance section. I recently
shared the largest tray in my last post on summer pillows.
Here it sits in the middle of the ottoman/coffee table. It's a great platform on
which to display my hydrangeas in my beloved vintage ironstone pitcher.
And here are some close-ups of the blue tray, as well as of the other two
that came with the set.
They even made it looked distressed! That's my kind of paint job.
The medium sized tray is a bright, cheery yellow. Does anyone remember when
lemonade only cost 10 cents a glass? I guess those were the days.
The third and smallest tray is more of a lime green. It's the perfect size to put by
the door and place sunglasses and keys in. Looking at these sunny trays I feel
like making some sun tea myself and serving it in my small vintage milk bottles!
As I said in my last post, I can't believe I'm breaking out of my whites/neutrals
mode and adding in pops of color. But I love it! And these trays certainly helped.
Who knows when and where the next colors will appear?
