Our 12 year-old granddaughter, Carly, adheres to the philosophy of "Go big or go home". You can probably tell she helped me decorate the mantle for Independence Day.
We created a 4th of July parade on the mantle. One of my flags was waiving in the breeze from a fan.
Along with many Uncle Sam costumes, some parade entries are wearing period military costumes.
A float, featuring the Statute of Liberty, is carrying the drum majorette.
These residents went all out with patriotic décor on their house.
Patriotic children (window clings) decorate vases.
I found this patriotic banner on sale in August a few years ago.
We added a few flags to the basket of dried Hydrangea.
Some of you may already know I'm having a health detour in my life, and it is causing sporadic posting on the blog. I am so appreciative of your visits to my blog and I apologize for posting irregularly. Please come back to visit and please continue to remember me in your prayers.
I’m partying with Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch, and Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.
