I love the 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I love celebrating this wonderful country that we are blessed to live in. We always have a church picnic and then spend the day swimming, eating and setting off fireworks. A wonderful time. I also love to decorate the house up in the spirit of the season. I have put together a few pictures to show you of our home. I love this little vintage Betsy Ross that I found years ago. She may just be my favorite patriotic piece.
Betsy Ross graces my mantel, along with a metal pitcher over-filled with american flags and my cupboard door American Flag I created a couple of years ago.
Last summer I designed and made this wonderful hooked rug American flag and turned it into a pillow. It is the perfect compliment to my little red rocking chair.
I started by setting my coffee filter wreath on the top shelf and really liked the way it looked. Then I just filled in around it with things that I had.
I think it turned out great.
Have a Happy 4th of July!!!
