Let Freedom Ring...and a Find!

Wow! I don't know about y'all but for us this 4th of July weekend just flew by!! One minute I was planning then the next I was collapsing from exhaustion! Any way I look at it though it was fun and worth every minute of time!

My find...

I found this uniform at the antique mall!  It fits with the "freedom ring" title of my post today! I am so thankful I live in the United States of America! I am thankful for our soldiers, both past and present, who courageously fight for those freedoms I fully enjoy! I say a prayer of thanksgiving each day!

While out playing on the lake this weekend my friends and me  (that's right I had many friends join in for the fun of the 4th!)  we found others that were just as patriotic as us!

Take a gander (slang for look see) at this boat all painted in the red, white, and blue...






Most docks, boats, banks and homes were spiffed up with the colors...














The beginning of a tablescape...




The junkin' road kept my friend and me close to home this holiday weekend! We enjoyed the food, the friends, the fellowship, the fireworks, the fun of living in the land of the free!

Let Freedom Ring, all year long, loud and clear!


Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your jacket is quite a find - I would have snapped it up as well. ;)

I love all the Americana decor at the beach. Truly Patriotic. That jacket is a wonderful find. Glad you had a fun holiday. So thankful that I live in America also!
