Today is Flag Day. I love how the Scouts rise early and leave ‘Old Glory’ for us to see first thing in the morning.
Notice how the house is all shaded, but the sun is shining brightly down on her.
Yesterday I decorated my porch for the holiday.
A few patriotic items atop a burlap runner. The runner has long red and tan tassels. Got it for a steal at Tai-Pan Trading’s tent sale. The drop leaf table came from my hubby’s grand parents farm.
I bought two of these flag banners at a yard sale for $2. At first I thought I would hang one on each side of the door. Hubby was pretty adamant that we only hang one. (Too many nail holes). I actually think one looks better. Hate to admit, he was right, for once. hee-hee. He also said, “it’s all stained.” I replied, “ya, and that’s what I love about it.” Did I mention that I have already scratched the door with one of my wreaths? He was not a happy camper. I really would like to paint it red. Honestly, I didn’t do it on purpose!
Planter was made by a friend years ago.
My oldest son and his wife just gave me this flag for an early b-day gift. They knew that I would want to use it before July 17th. Smart boy, mama raised you right.
My Americana bird house.
Uncle Sam has been around for a long time. He is one of my favorites.
Pillows on the glider. . .
A few flags and stars in my planters
A wreath on the garden gate
And we’re ready to celebrate!
As I was snapping these pics this morning the town clock tower was playing, “God Bless America”. How appropriate was that?
I love this country and all the Freedoms that we enjoy!
Happy Flag Day!
I just got home from my friend, Joyce’s house. Look at these gorgeous peonies she picked for me from her parents garden.
I had to share, aren’t they beautiful!
