When I was growing up, we had fireworks every year. All of the neighbors came out and took turns shooting off theirs, while the children played with sparklers, under their parents close supervision, of course :-) However, most cities in California no longer allow fireworks at home, so my children don't even know what sparklers are. We go to the local fireworks show every year, and it's become a family tradition. Over the years "our spot" has become the place to meet friends and enjoy the show.
I'm joining Joan over at Anything Goes Here and her Vintage 4th of July party. Her parties are always lots of fun, and another place to meet friends and enjoy the show.
Here's an inside view of that card on the right.
I put vintage and newer items together, all with the red, white and blue patriotic theme in mind.
I also pulled out some vintage books to show you. I love the Honey Bunch books, and have quite a few of them. I think they're perfect, because this sweet little girl seems to dress in Independence Day colors.
Do you think the makers of this tray were trying to get her likeness?
I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July and get to spend the day with the people you love :-)
