~ Flag Day ~

Happy Flag Day everyone!
folks don't celebrate this holiday too much anymore, but when we did we did it big :)

look at the intricate work in this sand art from the late 1800's...
millions upon millions of miniscule particles of colored sand, painstakingly placed to complete a masterpiece that had to have taken hours to complete...

we would dress up, dress up our children and decorate our homes with our handmade decorations...
hold parades and have picnics ~

our beloved Lady Liberty showed up on many things, from labels to leather water buckets...

and Old Glory was proudly emblazoned into our handwork ~
stitched, painted and hooked...

In celebration of Flag Day, I will be offering some of my patriotic-themed folk art tomorrow,
Friday, June 15th on
Early Work Mercantile

hoping you can stop by to see all of the artisan's work ~
Blessings from the Farm!
