This morning Jimmy dug out 4 tubs of fun 4th of July things that I haven't seen for probably 10 + years. They were buried in the back of our garage. It was like Christmas opening the boxes and finding all kinds of treasures! I had forgotten about half of the goodies. We are usually gone on vacation on the 4th of July, so I just stopped decorating. I spent all day decorating my hutch and the house with my new found items!
This past weekend, Jimmy bought me the Liberty Blue teapot. I have wanted that teapot for years and years. He got it for 1/2 price at an estate sale, So it ws pretty exciting. I had the creamer and sugar, cups and saucers, plates and some bread and butter plates. I now collect the red transfer ware, so it all is just perfect together for the 4th.
I do love my Uncle Sam teapot, but it does NOT pour well at all. The spout isn't in the right place, so it's a disaster when you try to use it. I just enjoy it for decoration.
You have to have teacups for tea time!
I used to collect Lucy and Me bears...I still have a few holiday ones Little Betsy Clark is good to give away.
I found I have a lot of Uncle Sam items. I had no idea. I must have REALLY liked them at one time.
Here is my Uncle Sam Lucy and Me beat waving his flags. He's pretty cute too. When we had our drug store, years ago, Lucy Riggs came to the shop for a promotion and signing. We also got to go to her beautiful home in Seattle one time with the Enesco Company. Oh, those were fun times.
I can't believe that it is almost July. I hope to post some more of my decorations this week.
