A Happy Vintage 4th of July To You!
While Jim and I are stripping the house to prepare for our new floors, I still really needed to have at least a tiny pinch of patriotic!
I got a tatty old flag at a local haunt a few seasons ago (technically supposed to be destroyed, I know!) but I love it. I certainly don’t think I’m read widely enough to get hate mail for it. It’s happily hanging from my big, glass cabinet so it’s got a proper, happy home. And quiet frankly, it’s my house. So there. lol
(hint: that means don’t comment the Flag Code to me, I know it. thankyouverymuch)
I can’t do much decorating around the upper floor of our home for this holiday and probably not for the rest of Summer for that matter. The deck if full of tools, and the living room is almost bare. I know it’ll be worth it though!
I’ve had these vintage style bottle brush trees tucked away since last year and I simply had to get them out. Even if it was just for a day! I placed them on a thrifted silver server and that was that. Simple. And just enough to make me happy.
Austin is vacationing down in Southern California visiting my family and is headed up to Mammoth with my sister for the holiday. Which is going to work out really well since we have half the living room stacked to the ceiling in his room! His visit was planned before our “lets get new hard wood floors plan hatched” but it’s going to work out very well.
I’m not certain if Jim and I will watch fireworks this year? We usually have a big BBQ and fireworks show (some homemade, but I’ll leave it at that. hahaha) at our place but we are obviously skipping it this year. We’ll make up for it next year though with a super huge party!! We are just really keen on getting our DIY-on and really getting this project underway. It’s going to be a lot of work but we are pretty excited!!
I did want to take a moment to make sure and wish everyone a most joyous, celebratory… and most of all, a safe 4th of July.
As always, thanks for stopping by!!
