I hope you're having a great weekend and looking forward to the 4th.
We don't normally do a lot of decorating for Independence Day.
Of course, we always fly the flag by the mail box, and on the deck, and...put smaller ones in flower pots.
But today, I did a little "library style" vignette on the living room bookcase.
Red, white and blue...books, and vintage things, too.
A 1907 postcard celebrating the Battle of Trenton...and flag pins~
Red roses, an antique cast iron bookend depicting the ancestral home of George Washington...although that's in England.
Another cast iron bookend with a patriotic banner, and eagle.
When we think of Independence Day, we often think of our Founding Fathers. But here's a book about our Founding Mothers, by Cokie Roberts.
I just bought it the other day, and I can't wait to start reading it.
The middle book is 1776 by David McCullough, and the other is Revolutionary Management, John Adams on Leadership, by Alan Axelrod, PhD.
That's all I've managed to decorate so far, but I know y'all are busy crafting, tablescaping and making yummy recipes.
So, I'm on my way to visit y'all to see your fabulous decorating ideas.
