A Walk Around Town

Everyone around here has decorated for the holiday, there are even parades. Yes, the South celebrates Independence Day in a big way!


I don't like this one at all! There's always one person to spoil the fun.

Matching flag & mailbox!

So how does YOUR neighborhood look?

this just blows my mind, we have zero decorations here, the only flags are the ones who have them year round. your town decorates for all holidays and it amazes me.. even your skateboard guy is decorated. I like the pallet flag. very creative

Linda said...

I haven't seen my neighborhood in so long! We go back on Monday and I decorated before we left!
You have a happy town!

I like how you folks decorate for this holiday. I have seen a few more decorations for Canada Day this year, but it is mostly a low key event.At least its that way around my hometown.

Plain and bear. Not many in our area seems to care one way or the other.

You have a pretty decorated place to walk and to celebrate our great land. It is more low key where I live.

Love the themes.. I remember my friend Pat, she has theme flag on her napkins and tablecloth laid on the table on this special day.. Love the designs to commemorate this Independence Day.

Wow great decorations! I really love the musical decoration. Very pretty! I'm not sure how is my neighborhood as I don't go out much :-) But I stopped by grocery store on Friday. Cup cakes were all decorated in red, white, and blue :-)

Patriotism is a great thing Ginny. We do not seem to take it a seriously as you do in usa. It would be great if we did.

What beautiful pictures, Ginny!! Happy Birthday America!! <3 <3

PS~ Don't be too harsh on the skull with the patriotic hat on. *wink* Skulls are big in the tattoo world and also the motorcycle world. No harm is meant by it and nothing sinister is intended. Lots of tattoo enthusiasts have at least one "sugar skull" inked on their body and all bikers have at least a piece of clothing or trinket on their motorcycle, depicting a skull. It's all good. :-D Happy 4th of July holiday to you & those you love. xoxo

Great photos of people decorating for Independence Day. Enjoyed your photos. Wasn't too keen on the skull either but read Andrea's comment with interest. Also thought of our trip out west when we went to a wonderfully authentic Mexican Restaurant. There were skulls in some of the designs in the restaurant, and a logo on their coffee cups for sale. I bought one for our son ;) I know, but he appreciated it :)))

Your town is very festive, Ginny. I'll be honest and say that I'm not fond of the skull. They might not mean any harm by it, but I just don't think it looks all that patriotic, nor does it belong with the stars and stripes. Other than that, the folks there sure know how to celebrate the 4th! Happy 4th to you and Phil!
