It’s Flag Day! Out comes my beloved American flag collection from the old wicker hampers in the Summer Room. I’ve been collecting vintage flags for some time now, and it all started with just one old Betsy Ross-style stitched flag that I found at a yard sale. It always took center stage on the front door of our 1767 saltbox. Since then, I’ve culled together new and old small flags on wooden dowels that adorn my kitchen garden and planters all summer long, to an oversized flag that is so big it can only be hung on the side of our nineteenth century barn. Buntings and banners have their perfect spots too around Connecticut Country House.
I truly feel that my Connecticut Country House is at its loveliest when it’s all proudly decked out in our beautiful Red, White, and Blue!
Happy Flag Day!
