Today you get "He Said"
and "She Said"
let's listen in...
She said, LOVE the 4th of July!!!
(she says this ALL the time)
cookouts, fireworks, swimming, family
trips to the lake...
and some great patriotic decor.
But HE said...
What? you do that all the time,
You're attending A Vintage Patriotic Party...?
That needs to include some real Civil War artifacts!
She said, OK, let's put together a vignette from the battlefield.
Decor, decor, decor!!!
Officer's camp stool with carpet seat.
old drum and sticks with a tambourine and songbook.
Vintage flag and Grand Army of the Republic banner.
and a cannonball that should not be dropped on your toes
while you're arranging said battlefield vignette.
Then she said, wow, that was great!
Now, how about some vintage
"girlie" patriotic goods!

vintage raised patriotic postcard
A biscuit tin depicting the making of the Liberty Bell.
with vintage grave marker flags
in her favorite wicker flower basket.
Old Canco candy box with a lovely lass dressed in the "colors".
And, how about some more patriotic fun
in the sunroom?
An advertising calendar plate
from Alma, Michigan.
And some vintage American flags.
They make a great couple
don't ya think?
