Let Freedom Ring!

I tweaked my display for the 4th of July holiday
weekend. I love how I can change this up to
fit the seasons.
I made a black and white copy of the vintage flag
postcard that I have had for some time and then
tore the edges to give it some texture.

This vintage page came from a 1945 songbook.

The candles have a song page wrapped around them titled, count your blessings. We are most certainly blessed to live in a free country!

Flag Song

Out on the breeze o'er land and seas, A beautiful banner is streaming; Shining its stars, splendid its bars Under the sunlight are beaming. Hail to the flag, the beautiful flag, The flag that is red, white and blue!

Over the brave long may it wave, Peace to the world ever bringing; While to the stars, linked with the bars, Hearts will forever be singing. Hail to the flag, the beautiful flag, The flag that is red, white and blue!

I am linking up today with Debra @ Common Ground for her vintage patriotic party.

Come and join in the fun!

Praying that you have a beautiful 4th of July weekend as we celebrate our free country and those who fought and died for her.

Blessings~

Hi Sandi, Happy Fourth to you Dear Friend. I have had a Canada Day weekend never to be outdone. My son got married, found out he was having a boy and babysat my daughter's 3 sons for the weekend. They are in the military band and had to play in another city. Whew - what a ride! Need a week to recover. lol
