Create a Cheerful American Flag Welcome!

Hello, America!  Let your Stars and Stripes fly free.  After all, it’s your birthday tomorrow!  I found a treasure of an American flag at an estate sale recently.  It is pre-1960’s (before Alaska and Hawaii were added to the union) so it only has 48 stars.  It is woven linen and hand-stitched – I love its character, patina and history.  I thought I would make a welcoming hallway vignette to celebrate the holiday and display the flag!

The flag takes center stage as a backdrop for my other Americana treasures.  An old camera , sunglasses, and a guide book can be picked up on the way out the door for summertime adventures.  Tennis rackets stand ready and beach towels in a French market basket are packed for fun at the beach!

My faux olive basket from Walmart (more to come on those!), with a fresh new fern and fun ampersand pillow, finish the look atop the most American piece of furniture – a black Windsor bench.

Are you decorating for July 4?  I’d love to hear/see what you’ve done.
