Schools out, time to celebrate with some Red white and blue. I love this wonderful County , and I have always wanted to get festive for this time of year. So I came up with a few new things....
Found this cool Thomas Jefferson plate at the thrift store for $2.00! I LOVE it! Than I got a few old frames, painted and distressed them. I painted/stenciled the 1776 est. on this linen type fabric.
I made this wreath inspired by this one
. I LOVE hers SOOO much, so I made the base of hers, and than added my embellishments with push pins ,so when our Independence day festivities are over, I can change these and than attach the starfish decor like hers. She did such a beautiful job! I love mine now, and cant wait to get to `updo` it again after the holiday. After a few years now of collecting ocean things I realize that I i love all things Nautical :-)
I googled and printed out a copy of the Declaration of Independence. Placed it in this frame that I also repainted. I have a love for Seashells...have been collecting them since I was a kid in Denmark. I love getting them all out for the summer months....Had to add some to this. I even bought me some beautiful ones while on our trip to Hawaii. I will have to post about them later.
An old piece of driftwood I painted some blue and white stripes on
More fabric painting.
Heres my little corner
And to end it, I painted a starfish on my old burlap pillow. Remember the old & sign./? This is just the other side.
Hurray for Summer!!!!
