Americana and a give away

Well, this is what I said in a few posts back~ flag-8

I just love American don’t you??!!! Well if you do, come back to my next post because I will have a few more Americana pics and I also will be having a giveaway. I had a birthday last month (a big one), and I want to give you a gift!! It is also the one year anniversary of my very first blog post.



Well…… life happens. Busy,busy busy. I will let you know later what I have been up to, but for now here you go. A few pics of Americana and a give away.


This will be a surprise give away. I will be choosing something or “some things” to send you that have to do with red, white and blue! I also will be choosing 2 people. I have many “loyal” blogging friends that have been so faithful and encouraging by commenting. So one name will be picked from the list of  comments as I look back to old posts through the past year. You also have to post on this one as well to be eligible.

Okay here are  the RULES:

1) You must be a follower of my blog.

(new followers are Welcome.)

2) You must tell me how you decorate with Americana, or your favorite item or place you decorate.

3) You must leave that comment on this blog post stating you would like to be entered as well.

And those are the rules!


 You can also follow me on facebook at salmonfallsprims cocarus; You may blog about it or put it on your side bar for an extra entry (just let me know).

I will be picking a winner on May 9th, so you have just a little over a week to enter. Good luck.



  1. I love Americana and my favorite item is a basket with the flag on my lanai. I show it on my bakers rack pretty often! I would love to be entered, my friend! I still LOVE the things I won from you last Christmas and I will post them when it's closer to the holidays again. It seemed to late to post them when I won....but I haven't forgotten! Thanks so much! I'm having a giveaway now too so stop by when you can!

  2. Who doesn't love Americana, especially in the Summer!! My favorite is the latch hook flag pillow my grandma made me when she was in her 80's!! I would love to be entered!!

  3. I love Americana. I have some flags standing in an old crock jug and one bedroom is all done in the red/white/blue theme.
    I have some items that I will be putting out on my porch, soon for I like it out before Memorial day through Labor Day. I also have some wicker furniture that I want to paint white and put red and white cushions on. I even have a bear that my Mom made me that is red, white and blue.

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

  4. Oh - Sara - what wonderfully fun American treasures and displays! I LOVE it!!! Although I am a relatively new follower, I would love to be entered in your wonderful giveaway.....Let's see....Although I love adding touches of red, white and blue from Memorial Day through Halloween, I'd have to say my "favorite" displays involve my collection of old flags....Running a close second (ok, perhaps neck and neck for a tie) is my barnwood Uncle Sam....And my favorite area to decorate (any season) is my entry way - the old chicken crate and the cupboard beneath it allows me to honor the seasons more than any other area in my home..... I have posted on my blog sidebar, and am off to find you on Facebook....Thanks so much for this wonderful opportunity! Smiles & Red, White & Blue Hugs ~ Robin

  10. Hi Sara, I'm a follower and would love to be entered into your giveaway! I LOVE Americana too!! In fact, since we moved to Florida, I had to decorate a huge living room. I decided to cut it in side is more prim, the other side, a reading area, is decorated in Americana. I love to leave out pieces all year. I also really enjoy decorating my new front screen room and can't wait to get this set up in Americana as well, will probably do this more towards July.

  13. Hi Sara,
    I love Americana and have decorated my dinning room in the Americana theme. My fav is an arrangement Sheila made for me. This year for the front porch I took a thirteen colony flag and attached it to a grapevine wreath and pulled it thru to look like its flying. It looks nice.

  21. I'd love to be included in this giveaway...I think my favorite thing about decorating in "Americana" is simply pride, I'm so thankful for my family members who have and are serving in the military. And I think decorating shows respect for our country. My favorite things are stars, so I try to have a star and Red, White & Blue in each room!
