So while I was sorting things out during my great declutter, I found these treasures that I will use to decorate for the upcoming holiday.
Tucked inside one of the drawers of my mother's dresser from the 1940's, that I am considering to redo using ASCP, but that will be another post, I found this American flag.
|This flag was found at my father's house |
while we were clearing things out.
|Forty eight stars on this field of blue.|
|This flag measures 36 X 26 and originally was on a wooden flag pole.|
|One tiny staple still remains on the edge of the flag|
where it must have been stapled onto a wooden rod.
I use to travel to Cedarburg, Wisconsin right after Thanksgiving and before Christmas for the Lang Company warehouse sale. The line would wind around the salt box building that had electric candles placed in the center of each window. You could get your Christmas cards three and sometimes four boxes for ten dollars. Coffee mugs, candles, decorations, gift items were all reasonable priced. Sadly the warehouse sale moved to a Milwaukee suburb and it was just not the same, so I stopped going.
While sorting I found a peculiar piece that I bought at one of the Cedarburg Lang sales. This decorative figurine was made by Dan DiPaolo in 2003, for the August Moon series produced by the Lang company.
|Title of this piece is;|
Uncle Sam on a chicken.
|I believe I only paid $5.00.|
I have no idea why Dan Dipaolo thought to have Uncle Sam ride a chicken, but this little guy is a great conversation piece.
