As many of you know, my youngest daughter, Kylee was recently at our home recovering from ACL surgery.
Last Weds. she said that she would like to find a flag to use in her Americana décor. I told her to go down and check out my 4th of July boxes that I was sure there would be one she could have.
In the meantime I went outside to cut back my spent poppies.
She came outside and said, “Mom, can I decorate your blue cabinet for you?” I was more than happy to let her go at it. I was anxiously awaiting to see what she would create.
She decorated the shelves and I finished off the top this morning. I love what she came up with. I’m thinking, chip off the old block. As I was contemplating on what I wanted to put up there I couldn’t help but notice that Kylee had created a theme. I’m sure she didn’t realize this because she is not a theme kind of girl. Her mom on the other hand. Well, nothing more needs to be said. lol!
Let’s see if you agree with me.
Do you see it? She has hi-lighted some of Americas favorite past times. Some are old and have lost their attraction, but still were an important part of history.
How can we forget how much people loved playing albums up into the 60’s? And what about roller blading, sparklers, and just having old fashioned fun playing a game of checkers.
I think that taking pictures and reading books are still a favorite past time of most Americans. Don’t you love my old camera. This was a recent $6 find from the Star Mill. Remember how much fun we had growing up playing croquet and bingo?
How about collecting buttons. Do any of you still do this?
Qulting has been around for such a long time. It use to be out of necessity. Now it’s become a national addiction. I’m thinking I need to take the 12 step program. Hee-hee!

More of Americas favorite past times. Fire trucks in parades, drinking, Coca Cola, and bowling.
I hung a couple of quilts on my black rack and filled a basket with poppies and flags for my front door. Thought it looked kind of cute on the floor till I hang it up.
Times certainly have changed and so have Americas favorite past times. Who would have ever thought we’d be blogging and visiting people all over the world?
What ever it is you love doing, I just wish you lots of good old fashioned fun!
