Vintage Inspiration Friday #44: Patriotic Party

You all know how much I enjoy changing up the decor in my little sunroom, and one of my favorite times of the year is when I get to decorate for July 4th. I don't have a lot of vintage patriotic items, just a few old flags and a biscuit tin or two, but I love the bright colors and the patriotic feel.

This year is a little "low key" if you can imagine me doing that.
I just wanted to keep this space comfy and "user friendly",
so I didn't go all out like I have in the past.

One of my favorite vintage quilts; a red and white one,
 that I use for Christmas, Valentine's, and the 4th.

If you look under the chair you can see how much we all enjoy being out here...

It's bird watching and "napping" central.

Almost forgot my little vintage child's watering can.

Canco candy tin from the 20's;
 don't you love her patriotic dress?

Child's lunchbox thermos with great patina.

And an octagonal Sunshine Biscuit Tin.

This year I just kept the baker's rack more "vintage summer",
with my grandmother's Hull Apple cookie jar and s&p,
and an old seed crate from Brian and Meloney.

I found this wonderful little faded 1919 calendar plate a few years ago;
I think it must be advertising from an insurance company in Alma, Michigan.
