Vintage 4th of July Blog Party

I will be joining Joan at her site Anything Goes Here for a Vintage 4th of July Blog Party.  Please click on the link and go to view all of the vintage goodness.  
I have a collection of things mostly from the 70's.  Our country celebrated it's bicentennial in 1976So, at that time there was a large colonial revival going on in home decor.  Many things in fashion and home decor had a stars and stripes theme.
Bicentennial pewter mug by Wilton Armetale.  Circa 1976.
 More vintage pewter mugs from famous American National parks and vacation destinations.
 Vintage canning jar turned candle holder.
 Vintage pharmacy bottle for flag holder.
Another vintage pharmacy bottle for flag holder.
Vintage postcard for decoration.
 Another vintage postcard in the same series.
This postcard displays Rally Day circa 1913.  I am not sure what Rally Day is but it had the patriotic theme. 
 All of these vintage items are displayed on a now vintage Log Cabin quilt hand made for me by my Aunt Becky.  A family heirloom for sure.  These will all be displayed as part of my 4th of July tablescape on Thursday.  Come back and join me to view it.  Everyone have a great 4th of July!  And, thanks to Joan for hosting the 4th of July Vintage Party!

Carol, thanks for sharing your fun pieces. The post cards are wonderful to see. I have a few vintage post cards, and one is the same design as your Uncle Sam jumping over the fire cracker. I've not seen the other designs.
Absolutly delightful! Thanks for sharing and Happy 4th of July to you. ~ Sarah

Hi Sherry,

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you liked my little teddy bear tea party. I had so much fun setting it up, erm, I mean helping Cordelia Rabbit set it up that is! :)

Your vintage pharmacy bottles are really neat. I have a collection of vintage pop bottles.

I'm following you now and look forward to getting to know you better through your blog!
