It's Time For The Red, White & Blue

I love this time of year when I get out my red, white and blue decor for the cubbies!
Happy 4th of July
I was excited to find this Statue of Liberty in the thrift shop.  I visited Miss Liberty once back in the 70's and it is an amazing sight!
This Liberty Bell is a pencil sharpener.  
I've never seen the Liberty Bell but maybe one of these days!
A few more things on the other shelf make this a very patriotic display!
But not all the red, white & blue in this house if 4th of July, 
they are also the colors of my birth state....Texas!
I love my Texas state and Bluebonnet collection!
A recent find are these cute red boots....but they have more importance then that...they were mine when I was a little girl.  Seems that my brother had them but they have now found their way home.
Somewhere in the pile of photos I brought home from my Mom's, there is a pic of me wearing them.  I will find it and put a print of it next to these cute boots.

I'm joining my good friend Kathe for
and 
Brenda for Tweak It Tuesday

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

I love your red, white, and blue Americana and Texas decorations Linda! Those little red boots are so adorable! I'm glad they found their way back to you! I didn't get to decorate for the 4th this year since I have been packing all my stuff up for the upcoming renovation. I am so ready to start it and even more ready to be finished with it...:) Have a teriffic Tuesday!

Blessings, Vicky

The boots are just way too cute!!! Your brother had them all this time??!?!!! I guess we won't scold him. At least you got them back, and they are a great addition to the vignette.

I've never seen the Statue of Liberty in person, but I hope to someday. I can only imagine the majesty of it!

Have a happy 4th!

I love your red, white and blue but most especially I love those cowboy boots!

How fun to still have them.

I've been actually tucking little pieces of paper inside things like that with the story of the item.

Such a fun and patriotic post!
