Vintage 4th of July Party!
Centsation Girl is having a Stars & Stripes Party! And......
Joan at Anything Goes Here is having a Vintage 4th of July Party!
And with a wave of the wand, let my portion of the party begin! WARNING!!! There is a metric ton of pictures ahead!
This bookcase is where I do most of my decorating in the house.
A July angel that I have trapped in an apothecary jar.
And another one!
Old salt & pepper shakers. I know the gal is Betsy Ross, but I've seen the guy called Paul Revere, James Madison, and Ben Franklin. We'll just call him the Bill of Rights dude!
Vintage sheet music.
I was so excited to find the postcard with the little girl on it! I've seen that image all over the internet, so I'm happy to have the real thing. It's postmarked 1909.
An old lunchbox.
An eagle quilt.
I collect Statue of Liberty souvenirs. Sure would like to see the real thing some day!
An old red, white and blue apron hanging by the back door, just in case I get an urge to bake something the minute I walk in the door!
An old teacher's tool to explain the evolution of our flag. It's a grand old flag, isn't it?!
An old watering can, filled with pinwheels and a flag. I remember getting a new pinwheel every year when I was a little girl!
Just one vintage towel in my overflowing collection.
If it's red, white and blue, or says it's AMERICAN MADE, I'll use it in my decorations.
Flags in an old crock. One of them is a 48-star flag. Another thing I collect.
An vintage red, white and blue tablecloth on the dining room table. With a flower frog holding an old 48-star flag along with newer ones.
The rest of these pictures aren't of vintage things, just more decorations inside and outside of our home. This is a quilt that I made a few years ago.
My favorite part is the blocks with the pledge of allegiance on them.
A throw that my sister Mary made for me for Christmas.
Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty that I made about 12 years ago. Actually I'm cheating, because these won't get out of the garage and onto the porch until Friday, so this is a picture from a couple years ago.
If you're still here, thank you for looking at all my stuff! For a blog that's called Old Glory Cottage, you would think I would have more vintage 4th things. Trust me, I'm workin' on it! Now please head over to Joan's to see lots more red, white and blue!
I am also linking up with REDnesday, over at IT'S A VERY CHERRY WORLD!
Centsational Girl's STARS AND STRIPES PARTY!
