Happy Flag Day!

Good morning and thanks so much to all of you who take time to read this blog!! After looking at several blogs this morning, I decided to do a Flag Day post.  Over at The Sampler Girl's Blog, she has a wonderful history of Flag Day.  I just walked around the house to see where I saw the flag.  Now it helps that yesterday I did my 4th of July decorating!! Our house colors are predominately navy blue or cobalt blue, barn red, and gold, so patriotic colors fit right in! I hope you enjoy my little flag parade! 


This flag is special.  We bought it at an antique show.  It has 48 stars.  Our house in Louisville was built at a time when the flag had 48 stars.  We displayed it in our family room.  When we moved out here one of the movers handled it with such respect and care.  I will not ever forget that.

This was a Christmas gift from the SBA.  That man really knows me!

Another antique show find.

Have a Happy Flag Day!!!
