Monday, I shared my patriotic mantel, and yesterday, I shared a 4th of July parade in the neighborhood. I just can’t help myself. If it’s red, white, and blue, it has to be in a vignette for Independence Day.
I display vintage-like patriotic postcards. The military band is the only real vintage card. It looks wavy in this picture, because when you move it, it appears that the men are marching.
I bought this framed print at an estate sale one time. It may be a page from a book. I was just drawn to it, and I also loved the vintage frame. I don’t love the sticky stuff where there was a price sticker, but I’ve tried several remedies, and that sticker had the best glue ever! I’m still working on it. A razor blade is probably going to be involved in future attempts.
Uncle Sam on stilts grows even taller when I put him on a vintage scale. He’s so skinny that the scale doesn’t even register a pound. If I thought I’d be able to navigate in stilts, I might strap some on, so I’d look skinny!
Yes, our steins are from other countries, but they don’t seem to mind holding little American flags.
The Red, White, and Blue tour continues with the addition of four more blogs. There are so many fabulous ideas in this group of bloggers. You won’t want to miss seeing any of them.
It will be my turn to share tomorrow. I know you thought I’d already shared all of the red, white, and blue at our house. Please come back tomorrow to see if I came up with any more patriotic décor to share. laurie
