Do you guys decorate for Memorial Day? I love putting out some cute red, white, and blue decor to celebrate the beginning of Summer. Memorial Day is also when we put our flag up, which stays out pretty much through Labor Day.
Last year I found the “USA” and stars wooden decorations at the ($3) dollar spot at Target. The wreath is a pool noodle, burlap ribbon, & lots of hot glue! I found the paper straws, the jars, and the green container at Michaels. The blue frame is a universal donation center find, which I cleaned up and painted with DIY blue chalk paint.
Do you have any fun plans for the long weekend? We’ve both taken an extra day off work and plan to knock some of our bigger to-do list items off the list before this belly starts getting in the way even more!

Basil! Radishes! I can’t believe Andy’s gardening adventure is already paying off. Oh, I guess I should tell you how we got here. With the lack of blogging and all it was probably to miss that we built a veggie... Continue reading →
On Friday, I got to go visit my friend and her new baby. I was taught to always bring food, but I wanted to bring her something just for her too. I quickly poked around on Pinterest and found a... Continue reading →
Bet you didn’t expect to hear anything from me any time soon! It’s been so quiet here at This Sarah Loves. Luckily, that doesn’t mean that we haven’t been doing anything around the house – in fact I’m really far... Continue reading →
We (like most of you) make regular little updates around the house. Sometimes I feel like we’re not making enough progress on the big things, so every few weeks I plan on sharing some of the little updates that make... Continue reading →
Finally, a post that’s NOT about sewing! Aren’t you excited?! Ever since we assembled the Karlstad, we knew we needed a new coffee table. A couple of weeks ago we sold the coffee table on Craigslist to give us the... Continue reading →
