Hi there! I am back from a little vacation adventure
celebrating our anniversary in the beautiful countryside of Kentucky.
I have lots of photos and stories (a haunted one too) of our trip
to share with you next week.
In the meantime, when I got home, in-between many loads of laundry and those chores
that need to be done after being away for 5 days, I adorned by coffee table with
the Grand ‘Ole flags.
In decorating for the various seasons and holidays
I have been trying just to embellish existing decorative items.
Oasis foam was placed in the sugar bowl to hold the arrangement of flags.
I added a few items such as the book
that is appropriate to the theme of the vignette
and the blue hydrangeas for the blue, in the red, white and blue.
Flags and streamers of stars from my stash to add some sparkle.
I purchased this great “Uncle Sam” crafted from clay a bazillion years ago at a craft fair.
He is one of my very favorite Americana pieces.
His arms and legs are moveable.
A very proud salute to the celebration of Independence Day.
A very quick change of a few items embellishing the existing decor
changed the look from a cool summer look of blue and white to Americana.
A simple and non-overwhelming look for the 4th of July holiday.
Here’s wishing you and your family a most wonderful and safe 4th of July.
Long may she wave!!!
