Fun With Flags!! Posted on 26 Jun 12:50 , 2 comments
It's almost 4th of July and around here I like to decorate with anything that is vintage and patriotic and of course I use a ton of American Flags! Anyone who knows me knows I'm very patriotic and I love to fly the flag all year round!
When we moved into this house 16 years ago, I had Perry install a flag pole in the front yard. This flag even has it's own spotlight!
When it's nice outside I like to sit on the porch swing in the evening and watch the flag!
I put this vintage flag holder up a few years ago and every summer I fill it with flags. It looks so cute!
On the inside I decorate the fireplace with a flag banner my friend Carolyn gave me. It looks vintage but it's new! And it's totally right up my alley!!
I also put my vintage red, white & blue tin cans and paper doll book out! It's so perfect!!
Then a few years ago I made this hanging cone at my friend Carolyn's craft party! I think it came out pretty cute!
I also love to put out my little vintage American flag clock I found on Ebay! I mean how could I resist? Isn't she a beaut!
On the coffee table I put my old 1942 McCall's Magazine and Child Life 4th of July edition! I love that picture on the cover of McCall's!
I place little vintage patriotic books and cans all over the house! In the heart frame is my friend Sandy who passed away in 2013. Everyone say Hi to Sandy! We miss you!!
I found this gem in my Mom & Dad's attic. I have it up year round (except when the other holidays are happening) Isn't it amazing.
And I have this patriotic display up all year as well!
The flag on this Statue of Liberty clock waves back and fourth all day. Not bad for 75 years old! I talk to her and call her Libby and when it stops I have to give her a little pep talk and tell her she can do it. I know I'm a little crazy, but it works! She's still going strong!
I also have this picture of my Great Aunt Tressie and my Uncle Tim from 1940's. They're both gone now. I love this picture so much and it helps me think of them every day.
I have the piano decorated with flags and old vintage post cards from WW2 that I've collected over the years.
The art work and the colors are amazing!
In the piano room I also have this little darling calendar! It's one of my favorite things because I guess I can relate to being the annoying little sister and loving every minute of it!
The year is 1941!
Even the kitchen gets a few flags...
And I put out all my red, white and blue knick knacks! Yes even my straws get changed out!!
Everyone gets a flag at my house! Mickey and his buddy...
Even my husband Perry!!! He's such a good sport!
Remember saying this is school every day?
I am so grateful to live is this amazing country. Now everyone go have a safe and happy 4th of July and God Bless America!!! Love you guys!!
