What can I say, I get choked up when I sing the National Anthem with my hand over my heart. Or when participants were holding Old Glory while walking in the town parade the other day. And especially when I see a child waving a flag with pride.
So I hope you don't mind, I got rather carried away with this post!
Cool tray I picked up for just $1.00!
Here we have a collection of vintage things... A Betsy Ross print, strawberry and velvet hat, jewelry set, gloves, (which go with my Scarlett O'Hara party gown!), a rabbit fur from an old coat, etc...
How about a little patriotic Chrsitmas in July?
This is a tree I put up our first year in this house. We put it in the office upstairs, as we had the downstairs all torn up. I had family serving in Iraq and thought this would be a nice way to support them and our troops at Christmas time. The ornies were hung with yellow ribbon. The whole shebang probably cost around $50 including the white tree. I had a lot fun with it, and made sure all of my Christmas wrap was red, white, blue.
You can see more pictures of my patriotic Christmas here.
Here's a flag pillow in Nova's room~
Oh! And this fabulous vintage table and chairs set that was already painted for only $70!! Nova likes to have tea with Winnie the Pooh and Tigger. (this pic is from when I had just brought it home)
As for me and my family, we are proud to be Amercians.
And I'll leave you with this~Happy Independence Day everyone!
