Stars & Stripes

It's a red, white & blue kind of day

Stars and stripes

and layers of old weathered wood

and the rusty crusty patina of an old doorknob
Just a simple Americana inspired vignette- 
I am loving the combination and had a little bit of fun photographing it yesterday.
Nothing fancy  just  a little red, white, blue and vintage

This vintage American flag was found tucked in with a bunch of nylon flags
at the thrift store last year and I loved it instantly.

Paired with anything that has that wonderful old patina
like a perfectly chippy vintage door or the old weathered orchard ladder in the cottage
it's perfect.

We are having a small get together this evening with a couple of friends 
for a little 4th of July inspired food and fun- no fireworks this year because of the 
dry dry dry from the drought

Whatever your plans are for celebrating
have a safe and happy 4th of July everyone!
