A Little 4th of July Celebration































While I don't have a lot of Patriotic type items to celebrate with...I have a few little items that are reminiscent of the 4th of July. So I thought I would decorate my entry table up! I made the USA BANNER and the HERO Bingo card last night with some of my scrapbooking items. Other than that I used every day pitchers and stuck some of those cheap flags (from St. Vinnies) in them. I found the vintage flag picture last year at a second hand shop...it usually hangs in my bedroom but I brought it out here. I *heart* it! I love the colors that go along with this holiday...some of my all time favorites! I think it turned out quite festive....and it cost me all of .50 cents (for two of the little flags...already had the other two). NOT bad! Happy Wednesday! XOXO, Cherry

I see you have some Jenni Bowlin...I LOVE her stuff! Now that flag picture you have titled 'Our Flag' is to-die-for. Now I want to go pull out some of my scrabbe tiles and totally spell out something for this great holiday. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

I'm in awe of your talent! The original painting of the flag print was done by an artist in my hometown. I love that print!

Rosemary said...

Great 4th of July stuff!! I have to get my stuff out soon.
To answer your question, I don't wear a crown while making them. I'm like the shoemaker who doesn't have shoes, I don't have any of my crowns. They fly out too fast. When it slows down maybe I will make one for me.
You have a great weekend,
Rosemary

That is a wonderful 4th of July display. I have that same flag picture!!!! They are quite old. My FIL had it hanging over his bed when he was growing up and he was born in 1904.

Your banner is darling as they all are. I really am going to order one from you!!! Connie

I adore all things red, white, and blue. I especially love that vintage flag print you have. But my favorite is that sweet little boy with the flag!

So very happy/ I can't wait for teh 4th. We also get together with our closest friends and BBQ before watching fireworks, and I can't wait to decorate the house up in red, white and blue!

Sherri said...

Cherry, I love all your 4th of July decorations-they are wonderful! Thanks for stopping by my blog. It used to be called Sherri's Reading Jubilee, but I didn't just talk about books. I talked about my husband, daughters, gardening, etc. So I decided this week to take out the Reading part and just make it Sherri's Jubilee. Hope to see you there again!

Kim said...

Hi Cherry~
I love it ALL! The banner is wonderful, and I love how you placed a flag in each of your pitchers~ the colors of the flags are striking against the white/cream of the pitchers! It really gets me wondering why I haven't started decorating for the 4th of July yet...but you have motivated me! :)

Have a beautiful day and a great weekend! :)
