Old Glory...


The very talented Miss Joy showed off her flag yesterday... I was loven it! With no budget for that kind of stuff I had to think ....Ok.. dig through my Dads barn. I found this board and painted a white wash on it.

I then drew some lines and started painting

After it was all painted I then washed it with a stain. Thats Kaylee helping out..

Gotta have my sonic drink!

I found this freedom sign for 40% off ....

These stars are candle holders and 40% off...

Here she is all dressed in her Glory...

  1. Left my comment on the wrong day, so here goes again. Love the flag! If I can find a piece of scrap wood I will be making one today. Have the fabric to try out your banner also. Check out Jen's flag at Lipstick and Laundry. It is cute too. Have a great 4th!

  2. Oooo someone went to Hobby Lobby! I recognize the Freedom sign and the candle holders, exact choices I would make but I'm holding out for bigger price reduction on Friday, lol did you see the red metal ice bucket with scoop? Loving that as well. Loving your handpainted flag! I'm always intimidated by painting anything remotely crafty, rooms no problem, but crafty things that need to vaguely resemble something, forget it, lol Great job as always!

  6. O.K. I so wish you were closer so you could make me one and bring it to me. After I'm done working on someone else's stuff, I'm burnt out and ready for a paint break.

    You know the old saying goes, a cobbler's children has no shoes. Well that's how I feel sometimes. Great job...as always!

  14. It looks GREAT! I swear, if I hadn't just rearranged my mantle last week I'd have done the same display. Because COPY is my middle name. hee hee

    Thanks for your painting assistance yesterday regarding my horrific shade of neon. I'll be fixing that shelf asap!

  15. Hey Susie!
    Here's how the little linky thing works...highlight the word that you want to link, then go hit that little earth thing that looks almost like it's wearing sunglasses, a square will then pop up and that's where you type in the link (or if you're lazy like I am, you just cut and paste it there). Sweet Kim at TCB taught me how to do it. I hope I will make her proud for passing the knowledge on.

  16. That's fantastic! I saw Joy's flag yesterday and loved that too. I'm definitely going to make one of those - although probably not until next year now. :-)

  18. Well done! and even nicer that it is from "found" bits and sale items. Everyone here keeps talking aboout Hobby Lobby and I am jealous as we don't have that 'round these parts.

  27. Love the flag. I thought about doing something similar. Maybe the flag with the 13 stars in a circle. Sad I don't know what that flag is called. Maybe Betsy Ross??

  28. Girl, you always refer to "no or little budget"...you ought to write a book! Your low budget creations are finer than most high budget ones! Love the flag and the banner in the previous post!

    Thanks so much for your encouraging support during our crisis with David! It meant so much to us! He is doing great!

    Hope you have a great 4th!
    Hugs, Rhonda ;)

  33. Hi again Susie...
    I wanted to let you know I put the egg tutorial that you were waiting for on my blog and also a chandelier that I remade...
    I just want you to know I can't wait to post the tassels you made me on my blog. Sorry it is taking so long we had a little mishap with one of the tassels (it fell in a full tub!)~ But remarkably it dried to perfection-You sure make them nice and sturdy~! Thanks!

  34. Girrrrl.....I love that flag. You are so artsy....! You did a good job. I did nothing but decorate the outside of the house for the holiday.
    Our kitchen area is a HUGE WRECK.....but we are making major progress.....but no sink, no stove, etc. etc. Blah!
    We will be GRILLING and eating on the patio tomorrow like we have all week. HA!

    I went by your husband's office the other day and thought about you all. Sorry I haven't written I have been out of the LOOOOP if you know what I mean.

    Yeah well I love me some "Sonic" as well...good choice. It's "Strawberry Limeaid" for me with "little ice." HA~!!
    I will talk to you later....
    Ya'll have fun tomorrow!
    Love, Joyce
