The Red, White, and Blue

 I was shopping the basement for something to make a wreath for the front door and ran across this old straw hat. It had been given to us at a community event several years ago.  Spray painted it red, added a ribbon I already had.  So now I have a patriotic item on my front door.

I continued to shop the basement and came across these hydrangeas.

I remembered I had a tall red metal vase that I bought a long time ago at Micheal's, so I put the hydrangeas in that, added a flag, and now my front porch is ready for July 4th.
Cost:  Zero, Zilch!!

Couldn't forget to add some red white and blue to the screened porch.


I'm linking up to Thrifty Thursday at Bloggeritaville.  Come by and see what's going on in the ville!
