Our Patriotic Hearth Room

I love to decorate for just about all of the holidays. July 4th is almost here, and my hearth room is decorated with lots of red, white, and blue touches.

Our hearth room joins the kitchen so it's one big room. 

The mantel and hearth are the focal point of the room, so they always get special attention. 

Adding flags to the mantel is instant patriotism. The wreath has red, white and blue pip beads and a patriotic bow. The left-side of the mantel has an arrangement I put together with a short red vase filled with red geraniums, flags, rockets, and a patriotic bow. Flags on the right-side were added to rustic pitcher/watering can painted white and filled with limelight hydrangea blooms preserved from last year. The bird house was added because I'm a bird watcher and love to use a few bird houses in my decor. 

The hearth has patriotic pillows. The chair beside is draped with a quilt I made a couple of years ago. Patriotic quilts are my favorite quilts to make. I'm working on one right now, but it isn't quite finished. 

To the left of the fireplace and hearth, sits a library table painted black and a round mirror. The white vase is filled with climbing clematis vines and three flags, then a small, cross-stitched flag, a Liberty Blue plate, and my "Bird Girl" statue. 

The patriotic runner on the table was made by me a couple years ago. It was simply three star squares, a border then quilted on my machine and add the binding. But it did take a day or two to complete.

The God Bless America cross-stitch piece was made by a friend years ago when I lived in Missouri. It is really special to me because the friend recently let me know she isn't able to cross stitch anymore because of declining eyesight. 

A small woven round tray sits on the coffee table. The tray is filled with a blue and white calico vase filled with white flowers, a white candle, a bird, and wooden beads. 

Thanks for stopping in for our patriotic hearth room. I would love to hear about your patriotic decor - Judy.

  1. ...enjoy a safe and joyous 4th!

  2. How nice that you have a hearth room! Our home doesn't have that wonderful luxury.­čś× Totally my fault. But it really ups the decorating opportunities for you!!! You've gone full tilt!!! I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's failing eyesight. That is very sad to me. Sight and sound are, to me, the most important of the senses...especially if you enjoy hobbies or have skills that rely heavily upon them. I'm so glad you have this treasure to think good thoughts for her every time you look at it. have a safe and happy 4th, Judy!

  3. Tienes mucho espacio y muy buena decoraci├│n.
    Feliz domingo.

  4. Your patriotic decorating came out so wonderful Judy! I loved the home tour in this post.
