It's hard to believe that the Fourth of July is this week! I mean that's like mid summer! Of course the near a hundred degree temperatures should have been a clue ..
I guess I best share my patriotic decor while I can!
These French peasants somehow take on a Colonial look when old flags are placed in their keeping.
I love this banner I made a few years ago honoring our family's vets!
My Husband writes home from basic training.
His Grandfather lead a band throughout the pacific during WWII.
My father was a captain, also in the South Pacific
Forty Eight star flags are always fun.
As is this fun Victorian art patriotic button that I found at Retro Betty's in Salt Lake City
Another patriotic banner from another year.
And the amazing award ribbon my friend Kim crafted last year!!
Here's a sweet close up
Then in moving to the dining room, my ancestral paper pennant banner gets gussied up for this the holiday with a fun red, white and blue tissue garland, some American flags and of course a red, white and blue British flag banner to honor my English anscesters! Thanks to Amamda at Retro Betty for sticking the patriotic tissue garland!
This cutie of an Uncle Sam was an art group production. This weekend I'll share a post of our group making them!!
