It's A Grand Old Flag

We have to admit - we are a bit red, white & blue challenged in our homes. Sure, we have lots of shades of reds...blues and a bit of a creamy white - but, they are all mixed with golds, greens, blacks and when it comes to the 4th of July, we feel a bit unpatriotic.....

This is where those little flags that the children have collected over the years from parades & schools come in handy!

We get out our vases - and believe me we have quite a bit - and we stick those flags in them and sit them everywhere........see, that's better - we feel more patriotic already!

Ahhh......we feel a song coming on.....

"You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of The land I love.

The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag."

Well, if that doesn't get you in the spirit of things...we don't know what will!!
So, tell us, what is your favorite way to wave your flags?

We must share the same brain...seriously ! That's exactly the extent of our 4th of July decorations...a couple of flags here, a couple of flags there!

We do the flags in cups and vases everywhere, too - and do fireworks and sparklers. :) Hope you have a great 4th!
