Three cheers for the red, white and blue! July 4th, Independence Day!
It is right around the corner!
Lots of Booms and Sparkles!
The day we celebrate freedom!
Freedom isn't free ..... as they say.
A lot have sacrificed for us and I hope people remember that.
That is why I always hang a flag somewhere to remind me how important that word is and how blessed I am living in the USA.
I love all the beautiful countries out there and I love some of their flags too. But I am an American, and I celebrate that fact.
So today as I was stumbling in my craft room picking up scraps of things. I decided to create this Lace, Trim, Pearls and Fabric Flag.
The last time I made a flag was my when I made my paint stick flag. I wanted to do something different. So I started with all my trim scraps!
I gathered antique lace, drapery trim, ribbon and pearls. I remembered I had an old vintage stool I needed to recover for my vanity. The material was perfect for the scrap I needed for my flag.
Nothing gets thrown away in this house!! Well the things I think I can repurpose anyway.....
So with a little cutting and gluing I began my door decor to show my support for our Freedom and to celebrate our Independence day!
It saddens me that our soldiers still have to fight here in the states for their benefits. People that fought so hard for us. Veterans going without healthcare. I mean, come on!
Our children need to be taught respect for our flag and country too. Learning the Pledge of Allegiance the way it is suppose to be said....One Nation Under God!!!
I hate to see people burning flags and dragging them in the dirt.
I am proud of our Veterans and soldiers.
I am proud of our nation.
I am proud to hang an American Flag on my door. Even if it is an artsy one! I have a real one I hang outside!
Because I was taught how precious freedom is.
So I will get off my soapbox......
and when I celebrate with BBQ, beer and fireworks, I will also celebrate what it means to be free!
and that no matter who is president and what is happening in this country.....
I know I am living in the USA!
and I am proud to be an American
