Feelin' Patriotic!

Happy Independence Day, Y'all!

I love red, white and blue~and decorating with patriotic touches! Some things I have out all year long, such as my blue and white state plate collection, but mostly things I only put out in the summer time. Today I'm sharing those with you...

Here's my front door and the new patriotic paper wreath I made this week. You can find out how it's done here.

The kiddos and I also did some rock painting this week~I love how they dress up my flower pot.

One the coffee table are some of my vintage patriotic postcards. I found a couple of new ones this year!
Here's my bucket of *vintage* flags (go here to find how I antiqued them) and also some more of my patriotic vintage postcards.

Here are a pair of Americana themed guest towels that were a gift from a friend. I love them!

These tea towels aren't the traditional patriotic red, white and blue, but I think hot dogs and hamburgers are pretty all-American.

And it doesn't get much more American than homemade blueberry pie! It sure did taste good this week. You can get the recipe here.

I hope you have a great 4th of July weekend!!

I love your front door. That's a cute project! Your patriotic towels are so cute.
Painting the rocks were a great idea as well.
Happy 4th to you
