My Weekend Finds and Happy Flag Day!
First off, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Flag Day! You know that a blog named OLD GLORY COTTAGE just lives for this holiday!
Members of the Continental Congress came to call on Betsey Ross in May 1776, and asked Mrs. Ross to stitch up the first flag. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States in 1777.
These are just a few of the spots around the cottage that are sporting the grand old flag!
I didn't find alot at the garage sales this past week. But I did find this old USA vase and a copy of Flea Market Style. Am I the only one who was too cheap to buy this when it came out?! Can't wait to dive into it!
A nice Fall quilt for the porch swing. Ugh, let's not even think about Fall!
And after showing the copy of Anne of Green Gables that I got at a garage sale last week, many of you suggested the version with Megan Fellows. I asked a friend about it, and she whipped out these two sets for me to borrow! I think I'll save these for a day when it's too hot to do anything outside! So, did you find anything interesting this weekend?
