I love vintage stuff. (Is it because I am vintage myself??) Whatever.
Here are a few vintage patriotic pictures that you could download and use as place cards at your 4th of July dinner with your grandkids.
Or put in picture frames, Or, you could have your grandkids put together a patriotic booklet with them.
Or, you could make coasters. Or, make place mats out of them. Or, print small copies and put them in the bottom of muffin tins for a bean bag toss.
You, Dear Reader, are so clever, clever that I’m sure you could find many ways to use these fun vintage pictures. Continue reading

For quite a few years, I have been very patriotic. Long before it was “in.”
I have even decorated one of our bathrooms with patriotic wall hangings.

I had a few spare minutes today and took time to catch up on my Internet reading of grandmother sites. I especially like this article by Susan Adcox Teaching Patriotism on the Fourth of July, or Any Day.
Even if it might be a tad too late to incorporate some of her suggestions today, you can tuck them away for a future date.
So, check it out!
Last week, I was out of town to a conference for work. I should have been organized and should have written up ideas of 4th of July activities that you can do with your grandchildren before I left. Key word phrase there is “should have.” Alas, I wasn’t that on top of things. Sigh.

Please note the titles for these posts. Aren’t the exceptionally clever and original?
Have a safe and happy 4th of July — and PLEASE be extremely cautious with fireworks. There are way too many fires in my state (and surrounding states).
