Summertime, parades, sparklers and patriotism ….what is not to love about the 4th of July? However, it always sneaks up on me. You too?
The summer seems to just have started and before we have even polished off our first watermelon ~ it is July! Flags are in my urns by the front door and our big flag will go up tomorrow. But I need more Fourth of July decor, so I “shopped” my attic & Etsy shop for red, white & blue treasures. Here are some special Fourth of July home decor items I wanted to share with you…
Can you tell how pretty these buntings are?! Each is made from vintage handkerchiefs. We search for lovely hankies in excellent condition, then have fun laying them out to see which patterns work best together. Right now we have two 9 foot red, white & blue beauties in the shop. Talk about unique Fourth of July decor!
Danalynn, my Etsy partner and crafter extraordinaire, gently washes, irons & sews the buntings. It is wonderful to be able to give new purpose to these dainty bits of history. Imagine the lady or young girl who carried one in her purse or pocket. Each square of fabric has a story to tell.
Enamelware is such a perfect addition to farmhouse or any country decor…and these pieces are particularly perfect for the 4th. Serve corn to the crowd in the red pot & how about red tulips in the blue kettle?
Do any of you have milk delivered? Heck,.maybe some of you have a cow! I don’t have either, but I have this wonderful milk bottle in my shop. Check out the phone number! “Hello Operator put me through to Branick Diary #48 F 13 please.”
If you need any of these lovelies for your Fourth of July decor (“need” is a relative term) let me know or visit my Etsy shop fast, ’cause I am ready to decorate red, white & blue!!
Have a safe & sparkly 4th of July!!
