Last week I took a walk through the antique mall that I sell at and, with my phone, snapped some photos of Patriotic themed items that are available to purchase. The 4th is soon approaching and I’ve yet to do much patriotic decor at home, except to pull out my favorite silk souvenir pillow with a flag on it.
The photo below is a section in my space. If that General Paint sign doesn’t sell, then I am seriously thinking of bringing him home. He is so cool! Made of wood, it is an old store display from (I believe) the 1930’s.
Having a few flags sitting around is great, but I like the idea of wrapping a dress form in an old flag, like below.
Use a flag as a backdrop in a cabinet or use as a table runner …
..or string buntings over a window or along a porch.
The tin can with stars is a fun rustic piece. How cool would this be with a candle burning inside? The stars would certainly pop.
Today I will be working on my cabinet and pulling the buntings out to hang on our front porch. For supper, stuffed bell peppers with ground turkey, chopped green chilis and cheese filling.
Have to get busy now…
Till next time….
