americana





i have always loved flags. anything patriotic... even when i had a chance to move to europe years ago..
i thought about all of the things i would miss about america and knew i would yearn to be "home".
so whenever i see something this special, i truly love it. not only because it is charming... but the history behind it, that we are so fortunate to live where we do.

Oh Pam, these are beautiful. I love the way that they have faded with time. I bought one similar when we were in the States. It is hand sewn, vintage and I LOVE it.
Sorry if I've missed a couple of your posts. I seem to have been a little busy since we got back from holiday. XXXX

Yes, we are so fortunate to live where we do. I think our freedoms and the sacrifices of the many before us that built this wonderful country are taken for granted. I love your flags they are beautiful. Have a wonderful day and thanks for your cute comments on Nacho : )
