Red, White and Blue!

Sunday, June 22, 2014

The 4th of July conjures up all sorts of great memories for me and most of them involve fireworks! Every year as The Boy was growing up, we would take a blanket and picnic down to the banks of the Red River and wait for the sun to set and watch the fireworks. Fun! Fun! Fun! We lived just outside of the Barksdale Airforce Base so we were surrounded by service men and women daily which was a constant reminder that others are always there defending our great country.
Nothing evokes feelings of patriotism more than the flag or red, white and blue so I've created a tablescape that contains both, but in my own vintage quirky style.

I've included vintage cobalt blue and white milk glass and an old Milk of Magnesia bottle to hold flags.

Then I added vintage red, white and blue sewing notions just for fun.
Red and white tea towels serve as place mats and I had to include red bandanas for napkins. I am from Texas, you know. The starfish are just a fun play off of the traditional "stars and stripes".
Happy 4th of July!! 

Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are Mine! Isaiah 43:1b

Wishing you God's best,
