The 4th of July is fast approaching, so I have been trying to get a few Patriotic decorations put out. I put a few out before Memorial day......now a few more. I will probably leave them all up til after Labor Day.
I decided to hang the Patriotic flag that I made on the front of the built in display cabinet in the family room. I like the way you can peek in between the springs to see the vignettes on the shelves.
My Give Thanks sign is a reminder that we should all be grateful for the freedom we enjoy in America.
I found my spring Saturday at a yard sale........
The whole baby bed was only $7.50......what a deal! I have a project in mind to use the bed as yard art.
I wanted my flag to fit in with my shabby chic decor in the family room, so I picked out fabric in pastel colors. I used some striped pink and cream ticking fabric and a yard sale sheet with some blue in it.......
The sheet also had some pastel colored flowers in it.
It was a simple project that didn't take very long. I just ripped 2 inch pieces of fabric and wove them thru the springs.
I saved all the pieces that I cut off the ends and tied them all together. I tied all of them to the top left corner of the flag for a little added touch.
Here's a peek into the china cabinet.......
I wanted to share the Patriotic place mats that I am using on the table.
I bought them a few weeks ago at Walmart for a couple of dollars each.
They are vinyl for easy cleaning and are also reversible.
Have a wonderful week ahead!
