The display above is in our entry way and contains postcards, flags, and memorabilia that belonged to my great grandparents, grandparents and parents.
Our day was filled with quiet --- I spent the day sewing; it was a peaceful way to celebrate my freedom.
There were very few fireworks allowed in our state, none in our small town, due to the wildfires raging in Colorado.
Just a day of prayer for the victims, and thankfulness for those whose property has been spared.
Yesterday, I worked on this little 6" quilt to hold pins for safe keeping that I have inherited from my family. The family was always politically active in hopes to preserve our freedoms for their descendants. Pins include a Carrie Nation hatchet pin that was my great-grandmothers, my uncle's WWII dog tag and ribbon, and other political pins worn my father and grandfather.
Hope your Fourth was equally as peaceful and joyful as mine.
