Hurray For The Red, White, and Blue!

My spool cabinet is a piece of furniture that gets redecorated the most in the keeping room.  I am in the red, white, and blue mood for the summer.
Start with a Madame Alexander Betsy Ross doll...
And a patriotic stitchery from my friend Valerie at Snap Peas...
Put them with a pair of kitchen scales and apples, and you get...
A red, white, and blue spool top table for Tabletop Tuesday.  Visit Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for more ideas,.

What a great patriotic table vignette, Joan! I love the framed stitchery, and that scale is to die for. Make sure you re-post this for July 4th. I know someone will be having a party then.

That is just superb Joan!
I love it, and would it ever look good at another Apple place I know. LOL.
Beautiful!

This Betsy Ross doll is precious and I love that saying in the stitchery. Do you know where that comes from? Thanks for stopping by and telling me about this post. I am a bit behind. I loved it! Keep your flag-a-wavin'...Joan
