She's a Grand Old Flag - Memorial Day Porch

Welcome my friends.
 
So glad you are here!
 
 
 
 
I have had so much fun decorating our front porch for Memorial Day!
This year it's all about our gorgeous red, white, and blue flag.
 
You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
 The home of the free and the brave.
 
 
 

 
 

 Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
 




 
 


 
 

 

 
 
I love our flag and what it represents!
 
This weekend we honor loved ones who have passed and who's memories will forever be in our hearts; and those who gave their lives preserving the rights and freedoms of our country.
 
I salute you!
 
hugs,
Jann

Looks as if you had a lot of fun of fun decorating for Memorial Day! It all looks beautiful. In my mind's eye I can see James Cagney singing that wonderful old song in the movie "Yankee Doodle Dandy".

Dear Jann, thank you for showing your patriotism, I have a long list of family that have serviced this great country and a son who is a Navy officer, so it really touches home when I see this beautiful display of love for our country. Enjoy your day. XOXO Jo

Your porch looks so lovely and inviting! I always love red, white and blue - we have lots of military in my family, so we love seeing Old Glory. The sewing machine and 13 star flag is one of the cutest things I've seen in a long time, I may copy you on that one if I can find a flag :-)

Susan Clayton said...

Love your fun and patriotic porch!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Your porch is so charming, I love every detail. The filing cabinet on wheels is so much fun and the old sewing machine with the flag is brilliant. Thanks so much Jann for sharing your Memorial Day patriotic porch at Vintage Inspiration Party.

I love your porch decor, Jann. Red, white and blue goes perfectly with antiques.

I found you via Brenda.

Love your red, white, and blue decor - there's nothing finer than our beloved American flag. I've decorated my mantel with flags to last through the 4th of July.
