Vintage 4th of July Blog Party

Welcome to my Vintage 4th of July Blog Party. I'de like to thank Joan over at for hosting this blog party. This is one of my most favorite items to decorate. This rusty old truck. I have not had this lovely very long, I purchased it at our local auction house. I've been decorating it some but, this is the first holiday that I get to do so. The flag and President George Washington peaking out below that is actually a vintage book of stencils. It has other stencils like President Lincoln and the White House and such. I added some pipberries and an all american vintage bingo card for fun. The blue star is made of wood. This table is on our screened in porch for which I do blog about often. We love this living space and it is actually the entrance to our home. This centerpiece is on a table near our door and acts as a welcome piece when you come to visit us. This is my pine tree also just outside the door. This tree is dedicated to my dad and it is decorated at all times. It is covered with many different items, vintage bears, vintage watercans, american flag many outdoor goodies and such.
This is a vintage flag I also purchased at the local auction house. I drapped it over a very old sled.
This is a small throw I crocheted long ago. I thought it fitting for the holiday.
I hope you enjoyed a few of my decorations for the 4th of July. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday whatever it is you will be doing.
Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to visit others to see what vintage holiday items you have.

Your vignette with that old truck is GORGEOUS! (HINT: That would make a wonderful postcard!) And the afghan that you made is beautiful. I love looking at all the handmade things people make, they are so wonderful.
