** ViNtaGe 4th of July** ~ Blog PaRtY ViGneTTeS!*!*!

**4th of July** signals that summer is in FULL SWING!*!*!  Vacations...   Weekend road trips...  Flea Markets...  Picnics by the lake... Outdoor BBQ's...   Screened-in porch... Fire fly watching...  Butterflies in the garden...   ALL these are the delights of Summer...  Click on pics to enlarge detail...

  ***ViNtaGe 4th of July Vignette***  
I mixed-in a bit of "summer seaside" with the red-white-blue...


The tin-picnic basket on the top is a rare find!!!  I just love the retro "Orchard Beverage" soda pop bottle...


The vintage crank of sort with stars was a New York find many many years ago...  I packed it full with the darling vintage flags that are made of some type of stiff gauze material... The vintage post card is just Fab!!!  The chippy wooden "Lobster Float" is to die-4!*!*!



The Red-White-Blue Stars hung on the Vintage Lobster Trap are actually vintage Christmas ornaments...  The fish net is old too...



OMG!!! ~ extremely RARE FIND ~ ViNtaGe 1950's Lobster Tablecloth!*!*!   I'll NEVER part with this AwEsoMe Find!!!



Full View ~ Summer "Red-White-Blue" 4th of July VinTaGe Vignette in our entry...  I mixed in a bit of "Seaside" in with the lobster trap... I now can keep it up for the entire month of July...  

It's not too late to join the ViNtaGe 4th of July Blog Party!!*!
I'd love to get inspired by YOUR Vignettes...

  2. Oh my goodness, you have a blog! I had written you through Ebay probably 2 years ago about how I still have a magazine article about you, and how you had inspired me to collect watering cans! You have an amazing collection of red, white and blue, especially that picnic basket. I love the whole vignette, and I'm so happy to have found your blog!
    Happy 4th!
