three cheers for the red white and blue...

when i was a little girl, we spent most of the summer at the beach house in new jersey. on all flag related holidays, i remember my great grandma would always out out these little american flags in the flower boxes. the little tiny ones that kids used to get at parades. she was so proud to be an american.
in this photo, there is my aunt kathy (my godmother), grandma angelina and nana. it was taken in front of the neighbors beach house.
this year i wanted to be patrotic in the back yard and made these sweet little flag banners. they are alot like my birthday banner, but i didnt put writing on them. we have a little canopy in the back yard for the deck and i strung them around 3 sides. i had the fabric in my scraps, so this cost me nothing but about a hour of my time.
of course, that meant that i didnt nap that day.
what i give up to make my house a home!All Thingz Related  linking to craftaholics anonymous
