I’ve been focusing mainly on fashion lately in this blog, so I thought I’d take a moment and share a little bit of holiday decorating for a change. Life has been so crazy hectic lately, that focusing on my home has been way down on the priority list. I was reading through posts on one of my Yahoo groups the other day, and saw a gorgeous patriotic quilt someone had posted a photo of. I was immediately inspired to do a little decorating. Apparently, Eric was inspired too because he brought home a flag for us to put outside. Our house already had a bracket installed, so all we needed was the flag. I love how it looks outside against the crepe myrtle.
Since it was a quilt that inspired me, I got out my Stars & Stripes table topper that has not yet been quilted. I decided it was just fine to use as a wall hanging in the dining room. I just took down the Kimono quilt and hung it on that same wall. I really should get this quilted! It’s such a fun piece, it seems a shame to have it languishing in a box.
This is a photo of the quilt that inspired me (though not the actual photo that did). This is Victory Garden by Jo Morton. I’d really love to make this quilt!
Here’s another beautiful one, called Rally Round the Flag (also by Jo Morton).
I added a few more little touches around the house. Not a whole lot, just enough to make me feel like I was re-energizing our home a little bit.
