Feeling Red, White and Blue

I love the American Flag and have a couple little flags on display all the time.

After reading a myriad of blogs today, I decided I needed to be showing more patriotism.

It isn't hard for us to look patriotic because our house is white with blue trim and a red door.

Steve headed out for a few appointments and by the time he got back, Fourth of July was evident all over the house.

I created a vignette on the red cabinet in the entryway.

I have to be honest and say that I got a lot of my ideas from looking at blogs today.

I collect letters to use in my vignettes to spell out words or messages.

The little flag is one that I have out all of the time.

The heart and hand were already on the red cabinet - I just had to add the blue star. 

I set the table in red white and blue despite it still being June because we won't be home for dinner again until July 5.

As soon as Steve got home, he said he wanted to eat outside so I had to move everything.

After dinner, just the centerpiece went back to the dining room.

Now, we are ready for Independence Day.
