Old Glory

Look what I found.



Just in time for the 4th.





Old Glory.  It was in a bag full of vintage linens, at a garage sale.  I bought the whole bag, or course.




This vintage flag has 48 stars, and a beautiful worn patina.




I love it.

  10. That is exciting Rosemary. I had a flag over my bed while I was in High School. I could see that in many places. Have a lovely 4th. xoxo, Olive

  22. Do NOT sell Old Glory! A 48-star flag is rare, and it should be yours as you're so patriotic by helping the economy, Lady!

  23. Love the old flag...and it's in such GREAT SHAPE.

    I never seem to find goodies like that at the yard sales. Gotta go more often, I guess.
