A tiny bit of patriotic decor

Hello Everyone!
I can't believe the 4th of July is just around the corner. It sure did sneak up on me...I usually don't decorate too much for the 4th, but here are a couple of pictures of the little that I did do...
Our home computer is acting up and I wasn't able to write my post on it like I usually do....So I used my iPad. Wrote the post and took the pictures on it...even used a photo editing app to embellish the pics a bit...What do you think?
Made this ruffled flag pillow last year. Just love the look. I have one similar up for sale on my Etsy shop if anyone is interested :-)

What about you? Do you decorate for the 4th of July?
Hugs and Kisses,

I love the white on white flag pillow. Beautiful. Happy 4th of July.

Beautiful decor, Ana. I love the frog holding the JULY letters. It makes for a pretty vignette. And of course, I love your adorable pillow!

I think you did a great job posting from your ipad. I love how the pictures have a vintage feel.

I just love your ruffled neutral flag pillow! Absolutely lovely!! I may need to make a flag pillow with my vintage linen!!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Love both of these projects! Pinning them to my patriotic board for sure - I just started decorating for the 4th and Memorial Day this year. Next year, I'll leave it all up from Memorial Day through the 4th rather than take it down an put it up.

I'd like to be organized to decorate for seasons and holidays, but hasn't happened yet. I have one shelf here in my tv room that is dedicated to all things Americana. That's about as good as it gets around here for now. Love that rag pillow. Have a great weekend. Tammy

Ana, I don't decorate much for the 4th of July either. I used to when the kids were young. It did creep up on us this year, didn't it? I just noticed the firework stands on the corner today. I love the ruffled pillow, and I'm off to check out your shop now. I hope you are having a nice summer.

That flag pillow is awesome--the decorating with out the color! Your other decoration is sweet too.

Other than the flag and a few outdoor items, I'm not hauling my vintage stuff out this year. Our girls and families won't be staying with us, so it would be just one more thing for me to do on a very busy week. I do love your vintage flag picture and the pillow you made!

Janet said...

I really like your sweet 4th of July vignette, Ana! I'm starting to decorate more for the 4th now, because I especially love all the vintage decor that goes along with it!

What a great vignette! I do very little decorating for the 4th. I'm behind also this year just like you.
Have a great weekend and happy holiday!
