Joan @ Anything Goes Here is hosting another fun vintage holiday party. With the 4th of July rapidly approaching, it's time to share our vintage patriotic decor.
Well.....after looking through all my "stuff", I realized I didn't have any 4th of July decorations or postcards or family photos that qualify as vintage (might be time for me to start a new collection). I always love participating in the vintage holiday parties that Joan hosts but I was really having a hard time coming up with something to show and thought I might have to sit this one out.
Well a party's no fun if you don't join in so I decided to make a 4th of July decoration out of a couple of vintage items I found at the thrift store.
I found a beautiful oak framed glass door (it looks to be a glass door from a lawyer's barrister bookcase) at my local thrift store. I combined it with an old flag found at another thrift store and created a 4th of July decoration for my mantel with a vintage feel. (The flag was not cut for this project. I folded it to size and the pleaded edges are being held by tape to the frame so as to not damage the flag.)
I'm Jane and I'm a junker. In my spare time you will find me shopping for treasures at local flea markets, thrift stores and antique malls or repurposing said treasures into new pieces that I use in my home or give as gifts to family and friends. Somehow the shopping part has overtaken the creating part but I typically have on hand what I need when inspiration hits. I enjoy sharing my projects on my blog and appreciate you stopping by for a visit.
