YOU Placed The Stars In The Sky……………


How do you decorate for The Fourth of July? How about the other seasons? Do you keep any Americana out during the rest of the year? Well, I have to confess. I have a love of Americana decorating. I love being patriotic, covering my heart as the flag passes by, or for the singing of the National Anthem.  I am thankful for the soldiers that have sacrificed their lives  for the freedoms that I have. I have a nephew that has just returned from Afghanistan with some , lets say, not very pleasant memories, trouble sleeping, etc. I have a brother and several friends that are still giving up their personal freedoms to “serve”. So through the years I have not taken lightly the wonderful country that I have the pleasure of living in. I am truly grateful.

I also have a love of decorating, so when I can combine the two it makes it doubly wonderful.

On a recent visit from my grandchildren, my grandson was looking for a little attention.  I had the opportunity to take a little walk through the house with Isaiah pointing out stars, as he is at the age of picking out shapes  and such. We walked down the hall and saw some stars, we walked into the living room and found some stars, we walked into the dining room…… more stars! I didn’t realize just how many stars that I had collected through the years. One of my sons said, why don’t you start counting them with him?! So we started counting….I am kind of embarrassed as to how many we really counted. They were all through the house and he was pointing out some that I didn’t even realize were there…………well I will show you some, trust me this is not all of them, as they truly would not have all fit her in one blog, and I wouldn’t want to bore you with them all.

You may want to get yourself a cup of tea and sit back and relax, this will take a few minutes of your time to take in.

I hope that you enjoyed the walk around the house with me! Thanks for stopping by!



Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing, God!


  1. O MY!! I Love all of your patriotic decorating and all of your stars!
    So adorable!! I am embarrassed to say that i am just going to be decorating my patriotic tree today. I usually have the house decorated for memorial Day and they stay up until Sept. 11 but with the kitchen redo and the garden planting, I am so far behind. But it will be done for the 4th so if you find a minute or two on the weekend, please stop by and take a gander on the weekend!


  2. I love all your stars and stripes! I admit that I love our flag and think it is the most beautiful flag of them all. I still get tears in my eyes when I see it flying on a beautiful day. Your hoem is lovely!

  3. Your stars are perfect on display for the 4th. Very pretty country primitives. Thanks for linking it to Home Sweet Home and have a great 4th weekend!

  4. wow love your idea.. they are awesome..
