***edited to add: here is a link for the star garland. i bought two strands several years ago from terry's village. the stars are red, white & blue, with a "weathered" look to them.***
annalisa recently talked about having her *style* discovered. i was surprised to hear that the two choices were town or country. i typically don't fit into either category! i believe my *style* would probably be described as hip-suburban-cottage-eclectic. or something like that.
so as i set about taking spt photos this week, i was even a little shocked to find that i had so much americana in my home. i tend to think of americana in decor as a country look. however, i do live in the 4th of July capital of North Carolina, and i can't deny that my home becomes a little red, white & blue showcase from memorial day through july.
this is the wooden star garland that hangs from the eaves of my front porch. (the color is a little off in this picture.)
the chair and footstool that i salvaged and repainted. it has a place of honor by the front door.
a little uncle sam nestled among the photos on top of the piano.
and, perhaps the piece de resistance of my "americana" collection...
this elvis was a wedding gift from my sister, handcrafted by an atlanta artist. i love him! (i'm not a huge elvis fan, but i love this guy on my hearth.) he reminds me that one day i might just get in that airstream camper and travel route 66 from chicago to california!!
have a safe trip home, michelle!
