Red In All The Right Places

Hello everyone! There’s certainly a lot of talk today about “red, white, and blue” and I am here to say that I love it. Just last month, I was in Jacksonville, Florida and happened upon a large amount of those 3 colors. Well, Bob and I had just toured the HGTV SMARTHOME 2013 and were starving. And quickly we decided that we would love to return to The Cheesecake Factory out in the gorgeous shopping area, known as “St. John’s Town Center.” Oh, yum!

Well you might guess, that we found a “Pottery Barn” right before we found The Cheesecake Factory.

The Pillows said it so well.

jaxpb_20130514_napkins Are you loving all of this? The napkins and napkin rings, are they great? I do believe they really are fine.

Mercy, we walked into PB, (yes, we both did…it’s a rare experience as Bob doesn’t like shopping anytime, except Christmas) and suddenly we both were enjoying the staff’s hospitality. And about that time, my eyes fell on their great displays in “red, white, and blue”…Bob actually called my attention to it. I have a few photos to show you and let your imagination go and think which plates you would choose to use. For example would you use the white star plate with the red or blue plates below them or standing up behind the stars? My answer is without a doubt just as these photos show. Thanks to Daisy and all the other Pottery Barn staff, who made us feel very well and very glad we dropped in.

And oh yes, we did have dinner at “The Cheesecake Factory”…a yummy….delicious serving of barbecued salmon!! It was outstanding…cannot get any better than that.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I’m looking forward to another trip to Jacksonville Beach.

  1. I love all the red, white, and blue! You’re reminding me that I need to get out my 4th of July decor right now. :) Don’t you love Pottery Barn? They always have great stuff. Did you have cheesecake? We love the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake one. Yum!

    • Hi Lisa, Actually, my husband has already put the red, white, and blue butterfly on our back gate. We decorate that gate often as it faces the street.Yes, I do love Pottery Barn, too. And oh my goodness, Bob and I shared the strawberry cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory. Their barbecued salmon was fabulous! There’s not one of either places in our area, so we have to go to Alabama or Georgia. Thanks for dropping by and umm telling me about the Reese’s Peanut Butter cake. It sounds deadly. I hope you will follow me…I’m off to read at your place!
