table decor for the 4th

i'm so thankful for today...for this holiday. i don't know how i got so lucky to have been born in America, but it's days like this that make me stand back and really count my blessings. i am overwhelmed with gratitude for the men and women who fought to make this a free land. free to worship and to live. this song has been running through my head all day and i can't help but state, too, that:

"...i'm proud to be an American
where at least i know i'm free,
and i won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me!..."

in other news, i have been sooooo bad about changing out the decor on my table. the spring stuff has been out since....last week. heheh. that's when i finally pulled some 4th of July stuff together, and ended up with this:


here's some breakdown, for those curious:


the banner: made from leftover burlap and fabric from this project. i cut the "freedom" letters just out of paper, with my SilhouetteSD.


patriotic subway art: i am so embarrassed, but i can NOT for the life of me, find the source/link to where i downloaded this printable! gaaaa. it is driving me nuts. i downloaded it about 2 years ago, and had it printed for my mom and mother-in-law as well...obviously i didn't "Pin" it, or i wouldn't have this issue. anyways, if you know (or are) the person who created this cute printable/subway art, then leave me the link in the comments below so i can give proper credit!!


baseballs: all my hubbys :) i just grabbed them and stuck them in an apothecary jar. this is actually my favorite part of the table.
american flag: Walmart, $1
american flag printable + white frame: this flag actually came with that subway art up above, so again, if you know who created it, let me know so i can give credit! :) the frame is a 5x7 one from Hobby Lobby.  i love that store and am sad i don't live by one! boo
pompoms: like i made here and here, i just made some grey ones to match the red and blue and stuffed them in a pickle jar. the lid is just spray painted.
mini flags: these were made with mini sticks i bought in the arts&craft section of Walmart. i simply glued scrapbook paper back to back, to the sticks. easy peasy.
