Little Liberty Kicks Ass at Fireworks

I am home for the weekend.  I love my sweet little hometown, but usually expect no frills and that’s often the way I want it to be.  That being said, whoever was in charge of Liberty, KY’s fireworks tonight - I commend you.  25 glorious minutes of fireworks screeched across the sky tonight and it was big, and booming, and everything small town American likes about this holiday.   It’s an excuse to make some real big noise in our quiet little burg.

Better Preparing for 4th of July 2011

I’m a sad American when it comes to my red, white, and blue wardrobe.  All I had to wear that wasn’t too painfully patriotic yesterday was a white v-neck shirt with some stars and stripes on it that I bought from Old Navy a couple years back.  I think if I was even wearing the outfit that some child was forced to model above, I’d still be doing better. 

I decided to see if I could find some classy 4th of July goods from back in the day.  Next year, I think I want to host a dinner party for the 4th and I want us all to wear classically American vintage goods and use vintage dinnerware and everyone read a passage from the Encyclopedia about their favorite part of American history. 

For such an event:

Vintage Avon earrings.  $4.50!  Available from Ecrater.  Perfect accessory.

This doesn’t SCREAM the 4th of July unless you know its the 4th of July.  Nice nod to the skyrockets in the sky, methinks.  $42.  Available from Etsy seller, Marie’s Vintage.

Vintage 60s Red, White, and Blue pumps. And in my size!!  $42 from Etsy seller Nick and Nessies.   I could pair these with —not the dress above—but definitely a navy blue pencil skirt and white blouse.  Or even short-sleeved cardigan. 

Vintage cake stand!  For sweet little cuppy-cakes or anything of that nature!   From the Tea Corner, $34.95.

 

 

Vintage red/white/blue and some splashes of yellow tablecloth.  So much fun!  Available from Etsy seller Call Me Jasper, $59.  I want to buy this for my regular everyday table, honestly.

Tomorrow, Aaron and I are heading around town to do some junk-storing before he goes to work.  Let’s hope we find some goodies.  Oh— and belated Happy Fourthy!
