Hi, friends. July 4 is almost here and we’ve had lots of rain in Ohio. I haven’t felt much like decorating outside, but I have this vintage flag I found last year and love. It’s 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 feel like it needs to be displayed for the holidays for sure. Last year I used my Windsor bench to dress up the front entryway (view more pictures).
A little star and juggling bowling pins round out the display with a gorgeous umbrella plant placed in my galvanized olive bucket.
Next year, I may have to just hang that flag and go big with my display! Tune in then. 🙂
