It is such fun to decorate for the Fourth of July. Favorites that I have collected over the years are used in different settings through the house. The Sam basket was painted years ago, but still remains one of my favorites …. and I tend to group other favorite Fourth goodies around him …. The tall House of Hatton Uncle Sam ….
little pewter pins painted by Linda Kiska …. Uncle Sam figures from the Salt Lake City convention, and antique bobbins that I use for candle holders. I love pulling out all the special Fourth themed items and putting together little groupings. This little setting is on a kitchen counter today, but tomorrow these pieces may be in a totally different location and arrangement. Since I have red and blue as accent colors in much of the main core downstairs, it is easy to tuck in Fourth of July decor here and there.
