I decided last weekend to change up my accessories in the living room. I wanted something with a patriotic theme that I could leave up until after Labor Day. This is what I came up with:
The old Singer sewing machine belonged to my grandmother on my mother's side. Sadly, it sat in storage for many years and the innards are all rusted and don't function anymore, but I had the finish restored on the outside a few years ago. I love it and will treasure it always since it is the only thing I have that belonged to my grandmother who is no longer with us in body, but whose spirit will always be in our hearts.
A red tin barn star that I repainted. It was an ugly yellowy brown color when I bought it. And some blue and white plates for the wall. Red, white, and blue!!!
Some USA stacking boxes I won in a giveaway last year topped with a white pitcher filled with sunflowers and little American flags.
And to round it all out, old timey photos we had taken on a weekend trip to Gatlinburg, TN a few years back. We had a ball doing these! Hubby made the frames for these out of some old boards he found.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! A special thanks to all our men and women and their families who serve our great country in the military. Nothing would be possible without all their sacrifices!
I'm linking up with Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life for her Tabletop Tuesday.
Until next time. . .
