Glory Be

Okay, is this not the cutest version of an American flag that you've ever seen?? Well, I think it is. I absolutely love the vintage linens used to create this-- the chenille, the table clothes--it's genius! This beauty was created by Amy of Into Vintage-- she has one of my favorite etsy shops of all time. (You may remember the adorable Christmas bunting and table runner that I purchased from her shop.) Amy knows how to work her magic with those (priceless-to-me-I-just-can't-cut-into-it-myself) vintage fabrics. She's a Vintage Fabric Whisperer. I'm kinda' a big fan of hers.

Well, look at all this wonderful vintage goodness! Amy is also very thoughtful and generous- she snuck some super fun extra goodies in for me-- is that so cool, or what?? I think I must have squealed out loud as I opened this box. Everything was packaged so special-- I loooove that. Check out that embroidered sachet tied to the wrapped package. Love, love, love sweet details.

Oh my goodness, she sent me one of her wonderful embellished dishtowels. It's hanging in my kitchen at this moment and I love it. (It dries really fast!)

Oh!! Looky at these!! Ahhhh!! I LOVE these! These are fabric covered magnets, and they couldn't match my kitchen any more perfectly! Check out that packaging. Love. It.

They coordinate perfectly with my magnetic kitchen timer from Anthro--- so cute! Thank you so much, Amy. I love my flag pillow so much, and ohmygoodness I love all the sweet extras you included. It was such a lovely surprise! (And soooo generous and thoughtful!)

Well, I hope that you all have a fun and safe weekend celebrating Independence Day here in the good 'ol U.S.A.-- don't forget to pull out your flags-- no matter what form they come in!


Hugs,

Hi Jill!

Yes I do believe this is the cutest version of Old Glory I have seen!
It is going to be so adorable in your house, and I love the magnets!

An Anthropologie is opening this weekend close to where I live! I am going to have to hide my wallet :)

Happy 4th!

Love that pillow, it's obviously adorable, but what I like even more, is how big it is! Very generously proportioned (like me, teehee!)

Had a great time knocking about yesterday!

You are so right! Amy is a vintage fabric whisperer. I have several of her pillows, a bunting and several magnets too. So any friend of Amy's is a friend of mine so count me in as your newest follower! Looking forward to more visits. :)

Everything is so adorable - and that pillow is totally clever. I have looked at the timer several times at anthropology....feeling like I must go back and get one now. So cute all your goodies - don't you just love surprise extras.

Ohhhh, I need one of those. Maybe if you get tired of it you could pass it on to your favorite friend born on the Fourth of July??... No? I guess I'll have to get my own.
