Deck the Halls with Flags and Buntings!

Attic Gal Rachelle says:

Here are pics of my Independence Day decorations last year.  I have a few more things up my sleeve for this year, and promise more pictures in a few days, (I can't hang the buntings here too soon or the desert sun will fade them quick!) but this might get you started with  a little red, white and blue inspiration!  Enjoy!

I must admit the I LOVE this country, I LOVE Independence Day, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pulling out all my Americana decorations. I sing patriotic songs as I hang buntings over my door and windows, and the gigantic 48 star flag over my fireplace (actually, It completely covers the fireplace!) I love how my little parade flags look, all lined up in my milk glass bud vases. I am crazy about my old 76 flag and my recent find, the fifty flag centerpiece ($2). I got everything at garage sales. I can never pass up an old flag at a yard sale! The best part about decorating for the fourth, it that it takes me about 30minutes, compared to 3 solid days to decorate for Christmas - and to me it is just as magical. Bold stripes and bright stars. Betsy Ross is my kind of gal!

(Sorry about he lousy pictures.  They are from last year.  I'll take much better ones this year - just you wait!)

Happy Festooning!
