“The United States is the only country with a known birthday” ~James G. Blaine
Ok, so I’m not soliciting birthday wishes, but I am born close to the 4th of July.
And for some reason (I do blame my July birthday) I am a collector of all things vintage 4th of July and patriotic. I love vintage red, white & blue anything, antique tin parade horns, tin drums, rhinestone flag pins, vintage July 4th postcards, vintage bunting and luscious silk flag scarves! Well the list could go on, and on …..
This has always been one of my favorite holidays. My family was all together enjoying summer and each other, and I always knew there would be a few fireworks left from our family’s 4th of July celebration to use on my birthday 3 days later!
Happy Birthday America, Happy 4th Of July everyone, and save a bottle rocket for me!
Here are a few of my patriotic creations:
