Red, White and Blue vintage style, come to the party!

Come and celebrate the 4th vintage style! Anything goes here is hosting a vintage blog party

So welcome to a peek at my patriotic vintage. I have always been drawn to red! Maybe it has to do growing up as a redhead??? I have early memories of me camping wearing a WELL worn red cowboy hat,(the 1960 version of sunscreen!) and some very scuffed red cowgirl boots.
I had a huge collection of Raggedy Ann and Andy....now only favorites remain in the collection.I can still remember buying the 1976 flag. It was a very patriotic time! Isn't it sad that we can't keep that American spirit going all the time?
Vintage cowboy boots, I guess you are never to old!
This beauty was painted by a dear friend, Sue at Cottage Way of Life It was created for a swap at a gathering of friends at Valentines............so many years ago.

OK, vintage??? I say yes, or should I say NO! Do you really want to tag your childhood belongings as vintage....I think not!

And a bit of non Americana red white and blue.....
I hope you enjoyed your visit...now be sure to visit the others!

This fourth will be a little different for this family. Our son has joined the Military to serve his country. I will celebrate our Independence with a different view...much closer to the heart!

Have a safe and family filled Fourth Of July......Celebrate your Freedom!



  1. Love your red, white and blue! Hope you have a wonderful July 4th holiday!
    Take care, Laura

  2. Oh, Raggedy Ann and Andy are perfect for this! Didn't think of that. Love your vintage. And, God bless your son! Have a great 4th!

  3. Looove your red album....(is it really a Beatles album)? I don't remember having one in living color! :) All your patriotic items are wonderful, thank you so much for sharing your red, white & blue with us! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  4. Love all your Patriotic displays...there is just something about the red, white and blue!
    Happy 4th!

  5. Oh, I love your blog! I will for sure sign up to be one of your followers!
    Happy 4th to you and yours!

  6. I love the way you do red, white and blue! That little vignette of the flag, red cowboy boots and the Campfire tin is just amazing! And I really can't believe I don't have a 76 flag. Me the collector!
    Will you please thank your son for his service to our country?
    Happy 4th!

  7. You did a beautiful job with your collection! And Thank You for stopping by today. Have a great 4TH! Julian

  8. Oh this takes me back. I LOVE red too! I remember my little red rubber boots to wear in the rain and snow with the elastic closures on the side, fighting to pull them on over my shoes in the cloak room at school so I could go play in the snow. And the Beatles album...I had a bunch of old 45's that got lost over the years. Since my nephew joined the Marine Corps, the 4th has new meaning for me as well. God Bless your son. Have a great holiday weekend.

  9. Love Your Vintage Collection ~ Yes, even the Wonderful Beatles Album would be Vintage ~ But, I consider Myself Vintage too! "God Bless America" & May God's Richest Blessings be upon You & Your Wonderful Son!

  10. Love everything!!! Happy Fourth of July!!!!!

  11. Bless you and your family as your son begins his service for us.

    Your vignettes are adorable! Those red cowboy boots are so fun. I have a Beatles white album somewhere, do you think they made a blue one? That would be so cool.

    Have a spectacular Fourth!

  12. Wonderful vintage items here! Love the Campfire Marshmellow tin and the piece from your friend Sue is fantastic.
    Happy 4th of July! ~ Sarah

  13. Love, love, LOVE the red record!! Great display, Joy! Thank you for inviting me and thank you for your kind words about my Firecracker Mom!

  14. Love the little cowboy boots and galoshes. I used the word 'galoshes' with someone yesterday and they were like 'what?' How fun to get to use 'galoshes' 2 days in a row, who can remember the last time I did?!

    Just now seeing your "where bloggers create" post, never did get a chance to see them all. Has to be the most wildly creative space I've seen! I saw bed springs at Round Top, maybe you did too. There's a picture on my Round top post if you're interested.

  15. I sooo love your campfire tin can, fantastic!!
    You have other wonderful vintage (rustic vintage) items, love it.
    thanks for sharing

  16. Oh, another lovely blog I must follow! I love all your patriotic vignettes, but the red cowboy boots...I WANT those!! LOL!! And on the last picture, the little tin box, I have one very similar ( in color) Think I might have to start a collection. Where did you find it?

    I have a few things post, stop by sometime and say "Hi!"
    And Blessings to you and your family on the Independence day holiday. Please tell your son that he is truly honored for being so brave!


  17. Hello! I just stumbled upon your blog and was quite delighted by your patriotic photos. I like your 'about me' section too! I look forward to returning. :)
