Americana Ornaments

Happy Independence Day!

For my first Christmas in July post I decided to share the three americana tree ornaments I found last month in a local thrift shop. Each is wood, in a red, white and blue color way. They were photographed on the table set in a patriotic motif, with a star spangled runner:
 First is a handsome drum decorated with stripes and stars. It is 3.75” tall x 3” across, with blue ribbon loop for hanging:
Second is a Letter addressed to SANTA/ NORTH POLE, measuring 2” tall x 2.75” long, with blue ribbon loop for hanging.
Third is and off-white snowman with padded plaid fabric heart. Six inches tall by 4.25” across, it features a natural cord loop for hanging. The sticker on back reads: “Center Street Design/ Wood Snowman Ornament/ Made in China c2002 81-8274."

      So nice to have you stop by. I just read your Williamsburg Christmas post and found that besides collecting Liberty Blue dishes we also share collecting Byers Choice carolers and Santa figures (I love your wood display stand!).
