Well, this year I’ve made the cutest 4th of July bunting for our little WW2 era home.  The bunting needed to look a little traditional and a little bit quirky (like us!) to be satisfactory.  I think I got it!  And, of course, that is me in the glass door because I can only concentrate on so many things at a time!Image

Along the fence in front of the house, I made the regular triangle flag bunting.  I like the result on both of them!

Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t show you some cute 4th of July outfits that we have in the shop right now!

First, this adorable short and shirt set.  Linen shorts and a cotton/poly top blend beautifully for a hot summer day!

The fabulous maxi dress above is nice and light, made of lightweight polyester, so don’t wear it in the heat of the day.  AND, don’t let any firecrackers land on you!

This year, I only have one 4th of July appropriate item for men…but boy are they grand!  A pair of vintage men’s blue and white gingham pants–ready to wear and in great shape!

If you’re in a cooler climate, you may be interested in this long-sleeved red and white gingham men’s shirt as well.  Isn’t it dandy?

If you’re interested in any of these outfits (and you should be!) click on over to the shop, The Home Gnome, and check them out!
