  1. I, too, always enjoy seeing your collections. I finally got around to getting my red, white, and blue wreathe and a yard stake out this a.m. As well as my hummingbird feeders!! Love the license plate trug. I have old “initial plates” from 30+ years ago–KATHY O. They would make a great box!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, you definitely need to make something with those old plates, Kathy! It is so fun to enjoy all the patriotic vintage things in the summer!

  2. Your vintage collection is so fascinating and delightful! That campaign cookie cutter makes me chuckle! I’m so glad I got to know you through the Pinterest Challenge. Thanks for sharing your patriotic decor at Tuesday Turn About!

    My parents are buried three hours away but, i do have cousins i can visit while i am there, just got back, love all your cute ideas. Before i left just put something on my front door and since it’s raining decorating is the perfect thing to do,thanks.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, a rainy day is the perfect time to do some decorating!

  7. I love your patriotic displays! You have so many interesting vintage goodies to display. The Republican cookie cutter set is super neat and neat I would guess to be very collectible.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Paula! I should probably look up how much that cookie cutter is worth…but then again, maybe I don’t want to know;)

  8. Beautiful as always! I love your ideas and the fresh way you upcycle. I miss you, my friend! xox
