…thoughts from my heart on my love for God, family and the care and decorating of our home

Tuesday, March 29, 2011


I am participating in the Tuesday Display Chain hosted by Misi at 1980 Gable House Musings.  This week’s subject is “Stripes”.  

My favorite “stripes” are those on our American flag.  This flag is very special to me.  We were married on Flag Day and on our first anniversary, and each one there after for 25 years, we flew this flag.  It began to show some wear so we retired it and replaced it with a new one – maybe to be retired on our 50th anniversary in a few years.  The flag is proudly displayed on an old ladder in our living room.

Americana 010

This is a ticking stripe feather bed cover.  I love the way this is made, with an opening for adding the stuffing.


I have this displayed behind a guest bed, topped with an old coverlet.


These small Wesson Oil crocks, with a stripe on them, are family heirlooms – I inherited one from my grandmother and one from my MIL.  The plain crock in the middle was picked up at a flea market.


The last stripes I have to share are the stripes on my yellow ware bowls, displayed on top of the kitchen cabinets.


Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my stripes.  Be sure to visit Misi’s blog and check out the other participants.

Spring Blessings,
