Well my friends, here I am sharing another collection.
Are you beginning to ask yourself, "What doesn't she collect?" lol!
Must admit, I ask myself the same question every now and then.
My latest thrift find prompted me to display my collection of Coleman coolers. I snagged this beauty of a red one last week and my friend and I came right home and put them on display.
Like the majority of my collections, I really didn't mean to collect them. I first found a green one and thought it would be fun to plant a little tree in it for Christmas time. Which is exactly what I did. Well, it ended up being Rosemary instead of pine, but still gave a similar look.
The green and blue ones came next. In fact, I didn't remember that I had the short one until just this weekend. I had lined them all up on top of my entertainment center and saw that I needed another one. Yup, I only had four and we all know how we like odd numbers. (wink)
I love how they echo the colored glass in my old window.
A happy accident!
So fun that the handles are shaped differently.
My sweet friend, Peggy gave me the teal one. One of my favs, next to the red one of course! :) Her dear mother passed away and no one wanted it. Peggy knew who would!
It has an extra cool label! All of the others say Coleman in a rectangular shape lined with white. This one has an added piece
All lined up they are my salute to summer!
I'll be the first to admit that there's a lot going on in this room with my patriotic mantle. In fact, if there wasn't; I'd be placing a few flags in these coolers.
But, isn't that just how summer is? Lots going on: reunions, parties, (we have 3 birthdays this month; one being my very own) yard work, vacations, etc. . .
The mantle will be switched up after the 24th and I will keep it simple. But my Coleman coolers, well; theyre not going anywhere for a while.
So what do you think of my, Cool Coleman Cooler Collection?
They take me back to my younger days!
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
