the artful farm

june is dairy month and in honor of the farmers of kandiyohi county and the cows that give us cream for our morning coffee, the dancing goat is kicking off the summer season with farm fresh decor! the theme is the "artful farm" because here at dancing goat we enjoy elevating everyday humble and useful objects to that of "art".  we have chicken salt and pepper shakers, cow creamers, gingham checks, milk cans and tractor seats, to farm-up your country kitchen!

for the lakeside dwellers we have an "up-north" corner at the dancing goat that is stuffed to the gills with glavanized minnow buckets, plaid metal coolers, rustic thermos, willow and wicker accessories, wooden bowls, and piles of plaid wool blankets, all in the colors of the big woods.
retro colors are still hip in aqua blue and avacado green, paired beautifully with wooden compotes and vintage crochet.

we are wild for colored metal catch-all boxes arranged in a row beside a jar of antique bingo balls.  great as t.v. remote caddies, recipe boxes or for whatever creative use you would like to emply it.
and of corse, in honor of july 4th and the service men and women of our united states of america, a display of red, white and blue to set the mood for your summer family gatherings.
