decoration day

i bought some old school flags a few weeks ago at my favorite antique shop. this weekend i scattered them about in different places around the house to remind us of the holiday. this one on my front door is still hanging on despite the many door slams and one hard hit by a water balloon. i hope you all had a great long weekend!

aww. the little flag reminded me of the parades we kids use to have in my neighborhood when we were growing up. i remember decorating my big wheel with crepe paper and waving one of those flags as i drove it in the parade. thanks for the fun memory lane trip.

Beautiful! How great of you to remember your country on Memorial Day with flags, and how clever of you to plan ahead! Smart. And so cute!
Got any great ideas for exterior paint color? I want to paint the outside of my white and dusty blue house.

ok. went to target today to get "pool toys" and bought some flags. not as cute as yours.. as your all all "loved and worn". mine are kind of plastic/cotton mix. :-) but they will make do in my little planters.

still looking for 2 flag swags for my front porch though. didn't you tell me you knew of a place.

I love the flag. Every time I see one it brings a smile to my face.

I know you are currently crushing on another door, but I must say, your current door looks lovely!
