Antique Vintage & New
One of my largest collections is vintage Patriotic items. I decorate my house every year starting the end of June (after my birthday) for the 4th of July holiday. Our family has a huge party that day with family and friends, so I want the inside and the outside of our home to be decked out in red, white and blue.
It all started because I love American history and all the symbolism that comes with being an American. I guess after 9-11 that was even more prevalent. I have even painted furniture in the red and blue tones to use as display just during this time of year.
In the last few years, I have found several more vintage cast iron Statue of Liberties, liberty bells, Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson busts and eagles. Oh I love the Eagles.
I am Patriotic because I appreciate what our military and our government do, so we can live the lives we have chosen for ourselves, we have Freedom.
Enjoy some pictures of my home during this fun holiday that I enjoy all summer long!
