Patriotic Ladder

My ladder is like my dress up doll . . . I decorate her for every holiday so here she is decked out for the 4th.
The tea towels were a thrift store find, $3.00 for the pair.
 I removed my vintage hankies and replaced them with clusters of these cardboard stars that I got at the same store for 50 cents a package.
 The banner was made from old book pages that I cut out, distressed/aged and then attached a star cut out.  I printed the star shapes on the back of decorative paper and cut them out.  The centers are just a circle added with dimensionals to pop them up.
 Since I had a bunch of these stars, I added some to my window photo displays on the wall and
 scattered some around my jars with ferns.  I have also added red and blue food coloring to the jars for the holiday.  AFTER I took these pictures, I realized it's time to put new ferns in these jars . . . they look a bit sad!
If you haven't entered my give away for the vintage sheet music . . . be sure to do that!



  1. Always love seeing how you change out your ladder!

  2. Your ladder is perfect for decorating. I didn't do anything for this it too late? heehee!

  3. I love your patriotic ladder and the fact that you "dress" it for different occasions. I have long wanted a ladder, but I really don't have a place for it. I'll be back to see how you dress up your ladder next.

  4. YOur ladder looks great. I have a ladder with all my red and white quilts on it. I love it. Just seems to fit in my house. Love your blog too.
