Red, White and Blue In the Foyer

 Good morning ! I can't beleive it's July 1st already ! Summer is just flying by ! I stitched up this little piece last night , its a Sampler Girl design ..I mounted it on needlework board , then onto a red gingham covered piece. I then glued it to the wood shape painted with chalkboard paint.
 I painted a few mason jars with homemade chalk paint ..tied them with the red gingham fabric ..and added a couple little flags.
 I have another chalkboard sitting on a wrought iron plant holder filled with faux daisies..
 Love these mason jars ! I didn't feel like looking for sandpaper in the garage so I just used a butter knife for distressing :)
Love this little patriotic display in my foyer !

Saw this on IG, so guessed there would be a blog post, and what a great post!! Love it all, the chalkboard piece is perfect and I love the mason jars, you have such clever ideas, and are those daisies really faux??? They look real, so pretty.
A beautiful display, as always.

Love your patriotic displays! All of my bunting and stuff is up at the cabin. So I didn't do much here.
Summer is flying by fast, isn't it!
