Celebrating the 4th of July
Because Home is Where the Herd Is

 July 4th, Farmhouse Decor, Independence Day Decorations, Farmhouse

Happy Independence Day!!! Before I get into my Home is Where the Herd Is July Decorations and the July 4th Card I created below, I'd like to share an awesome quote that sums up what today's all about for me.

"This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave." - Elmer Davis

Truer words have never been spoken.  I love decorating for July and this year I pulled many of my decorations that I created before.  From my star spangled bottles to my over sized firecrackers.  I will say I didn't create the Betsy Ross Mop doll, but I do love her so.  I love my Flag themed barn and barn picture and they are perfect on my mantle.

I kept the dining room table simple and I love how it turned out.  Who doesn't love a red bandana, am I right?

My final touches are on the front door and porch.  A big shout out to my Friend Cindy who made this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Heart Rag Wreath for me a few years back and I am proud to display it on our front door.  Finally I placed pillows I created years back on our chairs and benches to finish the porch off.  I hope you enjoyed my July Home is Where the Herd is Tour, but don't stop reading.  I've created the perfect card for today or any day you'd like to celebrate our country and the men and women who risk it all to keep us FREE!!!
