Decoration of Independence!

Attic Gal Rachelle says:

It is no secret. I am a fan of the flag and the Fourth, and this great and glorious nation as a whole! One of my very favorite holidays is Independence Day, for many important reasons. And I love, love, love to decorate for it!

I do tend to get a bit carried away. Come the first day of July my house looks pretty much like a flag factory exploded - inside and out. Red white and blue EVERYWHERE!

Click here to see last year's post about my Independence Day decor. Really do check it out. There is SO much more on that post!

This year is even better!!!

I have put together some new vignettes, for your (well, mine, actually) viewing pleasure.

If you haven't seen my previous post about my tin stars click here.

My favorite new addition is this absolutely amazing comb-back Windsor writing arm chair that I scored recently at a garage sale! It just screams 1776! In fact, in my research I discovered that Thomas Jefferson wrote part of the Deceleration of Independence on a chair just like this one! How cool is that?

Here is a super fun fabric banner I made last year with my Big Shot! I absolutely LOVE it, and think it contrasts nicely with the pencil drawing done by my 4 year old all over the wall, don't you think?

I also go all out decorating the back yard, and a lot of Independence Day celebrations (namely our annual family breakfast and water fight - kids vs. grown-ups) take place out there.

Have a wonderful, star-spangled Independence Day!

God Bless America!

  1. I love all your flags. I have so many myself and love, love, love them. What great posts. I think you should write a Decorating for Independence Day book. Now you have to post about that ADORABLE necklace. Girl, I want to go over to your house and craft. When is our crafting night?? Love you lady!
