Patriotic Welcome

I am known for decorating for every possible holiday. I don't know what it is about holidays, but I love them, embrace them and use them for an excuse to break out some more decor.

The outdoor summer decor went up yesterday. We lovingly call bunting "bunty" as that is what my now 13 year old used to think it was called.

There's my kitchen window where I watch the world go by.

Our flag holder has its stars and stripes in place for Memorial Day.

I always have to have some silly lighted ornament. My kids have come to expect it so I have a huge collection.

Even the veggie garden gets decked out.


  1. Love it all! Including your red shutters!

  2. Finally, someone who loves patriotic decor every bit as much as I do! Your decorations really made my day!

  3. It looks patriotic and pretty. Good work.

  4. Oh, this looks wonderful! My tiny hand is already over my heart! God bless America and God bless you!
    Be a sweetie,

  12. Very patriotic! I love the multi-flag holder; think I will need to be on the look out for one of those to put on my deck since I have the large flag in front of the house. Your bunting looks great, too.
