Another element that is slightly different is her large glass bottle that holds her flags.
I had this hobnail light grey pitcher to hold my flags, I must admit, I love our flag especially in a breeze when it’s waiving with pride. I think this glass pitcher works perfectly to display my flags. They are 12″ tall flags I purchased from Michael’s a few years ago. To give them a vintage touch I used dark Maison Blanche and ASCP clear wax., what do you think?
I have to say I love French décor but I am smitten with mason jars. There’s something that calls me when I see vintage blue jars. The softness of the blue is wonderful. I used the opposite sizes to the picture from Marie’s tray. I found these while thrifting a while back, aren’t the aged galvanized lids great?
Another swap is the smaller galvanized bucket. Not having one, I added a red antique petite soup tureen with boxwood greenery. The read works great for a patriotic feel.
The frame with a picture is a cute touch. Using pictures of my parents from when they were sweethearts in college seemed to be a great addition. These are dear to my heart, I always pleaded with my mom for them. One day she surprised me and let me take them home. The frames I found at Michael’s years ago. I painted them and lightly sanded the details, I will cherish these forever.
Lastly, in Liz’s picture there is a tricycle and I thought it would be fun to add this baseball glove my husband has had since he was young. His dad brought it home for him and he has kept it throughout his life. Adding the very old baseball he has had as well finishes this salute to patriotism perfectly.
I hope this gives you inspiration for a patriotic display in your home.
