Getting Patriotic!

I started getting my Patriotic decor out.  Here is a bit of it....

 I saved these Cracker Jacks from a couple years ago.  They were from Walmart...don't know if they have them this year
 The candle holder I got at a garage sale last week for $2.00.  It is wrought iron and heavy.  I am looking for a blue candle for the empty spot.  No luck yet!

I probably have had the CocaCola lamp for 15 years!
 I bought this at the Dollar Tree about 5 years ago!

 Teapot from CB a couple of years ago.  I think the One Nation from from Kirkland a couple of years ago.
 I just love these ducks waving their flags!
 My precious teddy bear that always reminds me of my Grandma...she always made me paper hats from the newspaper.  The bikes remind me of days gone by from the old towne parades.
My Uncle Sam - he was from one of those candle parties...the book from from the Dollar Tree.

I will be linking with Marty for Tabletop Tuesday.

You have a wonderful collection Ceekay! And what a score on that candleholder! KA-UTE! My favorite of all are those darling ducks under cloche! Too darn cute! ....Plus there's that cloche weakness of mine *winks* Vanna

I totally love the USA! I don't do a lot inside but the outside of my home is all decked out to celebrate AMERICA!

Love to you sweet friend~

I don't have any real patriotic decor, per se. I'll probably just decorate with red, white and blue, of which is plentiful around here. Love the Cracker Jacks!

Hi Ceekay, Love all your patriotic vignettes! I love the crackerjack boxes in the pretty glass jar! Have a great weekend, Martina

Hi Ceekay! Love all your patriotic decorations! I especially loved the little table-top framed picture that said "one nation under God", and I'm wondering if I could make one like it. I'll have to scout around for the right sized wooden frame.. I loved the ducks under the cloche too! SO CUTE!.. And you know? I STILL don't have a CLOCHE! What is up with THAT, huh?! I keep looking, but no luck yet!... Oh well, it's o.k.. I'll find one eventually! Have a nice weekend! ~tina

Hi Ceekay.. I've made TP Roll Mini Albums, but I've never heard of them made into collages. Now I had to look this up of course, and here's what I found...

And then this..

So-oooo, I'm not sure which one more properly named as such, but there you have it. I really found that first sight fascinating though! Did you see the giraffes! I loved that one! ~tina

I love all your patriotic & Americana things but I'm crazy over that candle holder.

Rettabug said...

What a WONDERFULLY patriotic display, Ceekay! I love every inch of this! So creative with the Cracker Jacks in the jar & the cute teddy bear there. Just Darling!

Well done! Makes me feel like a slouch, as I don't have a single thing out yet, not even my flag!!! Shame!

Sweet Meanderings said...

Love the cracker jack boxes in the jar. Great idea. You also found a treasure with you garage sale find. I can hear you squealing with excitement now.

Rebecca Nelson said...

Hi Ceekay! You make me feel like humming "God Bless America!" :) Love it all.

Thanks for your patience while I recovered from my French hangover. :)

At the time I was there one Euro was equal to $1.66. So it gets expensive fast.

My ankle has now recovered.

Read the teal blog and it seems you are doing well too! Yeah!

Let's get together soon.

Look at all your cuteness! Looks like summer is beginning to bloom there! Oh now I want some cracker Jacks!


Celestina Marie said...

Hi Ceekay,
You have such a talent for display and I love your Americana Decor. And, you find the best stuff from the Dollar store. I love to go there as well. It seems they have what noone else carries and for only a dollar. Can't beat it!

Your wrought iron candle holder is awesome. Hope you find the blue candle. If not, maybe you can paint one. I am sure when it gets close to the 4th of July blue candles will be out.

Great collection and as always wonderful pics.
Have a nice Sunday.
XO Celestina Marie

Hi Ceekay, I love your patriotic goodies! Every one of them! I forgot about newspaper hats. I wonder if I can still make one? And the from with one nation under God is so special. Did you know that sometimes that phrase is eliminated from the pledge??!!! I am almost finished with my red white and blue decorating too! I'll have to post some. Linda

Susan Freeman said...

Hi Ceekay! Your patriotic displays are wonderful! I'm going to check Walmart to see if they have any of those cute Cracker Jacks boxes this year. We are a very patriotic family too. Happy TTT!

Dear CeeKay...I feel so inspired to get my Patriotic Decor out now that I've visited you! I thought I had a lot....but YOU certainly beat me!

Thanks for your comment on my post about the horrible tornado in Joplin, MO. The poor folks there have endured rain all day....and were under another tornado watch tonight. More storms are expected to roll in tomorrow....and we, in KC, MO....are included in that forecast, too. As of tonight, 119 people are dead...with dozens more still missing. It's just an awful time for that town....they certainly need our prayers.

CK, your vignette is wonderful. You do have some fabulous things, love the ducks and the bikes. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Love your decor. Hugs, Marty
