BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

My tabletop for this Tuesday is really a ledge top, but sweet Marty will let us post ledges for Tabletop Tuesday. Please join me in celebrating America’s birthday on the ledge of my china cabinet.

happy 4th

I am linking this post to A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday and to Anything Goes Here for the Vintage Red White and Blue Party, even though my red, white and blue decor is reproduction vintage. I hope that’s okay. (The Uncle Sam Pez dispenser is probably one of the oldest things on this ledge. However, the cardboard Happy 4th cutout was something that I found in my Mother’s stash, so I don’t know how old it is.)

Laurie, this is all patriotic perfect! Love the stand that holds your cards. The Happy 4th from your Mother's stash is fabulous. So is the Pez dispensor. What fun pieces. This all looks wonderful displayed on the ledge of your china cabinet. Love it! ~ Sarah

Wonderful Laurie! I adore your 4th decorations! I am trying to get a post together of my very small collection.

I am still working on the little boy bust...they are trying to find another one. I just didn't want you to think I had forgotten.

Have a wonderful evening!

What a great decorating job! I love how it looks and how it makes me feel! Happy 4th of July!

Mary Ellen said...

Laurie another great blog entry!! I haven't even had time to think about the 4th and decorating with all the camps and such. Summer just goes by to fast and if I am doing something it better be out in the garden where the weed continue to see if they can outrun the flowers and plants!!

Laurie, you do have some of the most wonderful decorations. I feel like a real slacker that I don't decorate for all the holidays. Guess I need to change that. Everything just looks wonderful. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Love your patriotic decor. I always use reproductions of vintage post cards or prints as well. I wish I had the real thing, but I like the reproductions as you don't have to worry about them getting ruined. You can always print out another one.

Leslie @ goodbye, house! HELLO, HOME! said...

How beautiful!
My favorite is the sign that says, "GEE!! I wish I were A MAN I'd JOIN the NAVY"
Too cute!
Happy Independence Day!!
