A Salute to the Red, White, and Blue!

We're getting ready for the 4th of July around Applejack Lane.  Please step in and visit a while!
For back door friends...
Betsy Ross..

A kitchen vignette...
What's a celebration without a red, white, and blue watermelon with a few black crows?
My favorite Uncle Sam...
A soft pillow...
 A simple project using two materials, star wire, and stuffing...
Even a bunny shows his patriotic colors...
Less we forget our fallen heroes on this day...
God Bless America!
Happy July 4!

Please join Centsational Girl and Anything Goes Here for special July 4th fun!

Everything is so pretty. I love all of your wonderful americana decorations. The scale is so pretty too and that flag tray is so unusual and beautiful. You have arranged such lovely vignettes. Happy 4th. Hugs, Marty

Love all your red,white, and blue. I am going to shop after the 4th to pick up some things for next year. I've never decorated for the 4th before this year, and I cannot believe it took me so long, to realize how gorgeous red, white, and blue looks at my house. :o) (love your heart door hanger)
