Bring A Little Americana Into Your Life

I have been in love with this cutting board from Target since I first saw the Curiosity Shop collection a few months ago. It finally went on clearance, and I snagged one up today. This may have been part of my master "Buy Things To Feel Better About Deployment Plan".

This has inspired me to find more ways to include some Americana in my home. We already have an American Flag in the staircase, but I am feeling a need for some more examples of patriotism. Here are some of the projects I have in mind.

I have tons of pallet wood lying around from various projects. I would love to make a flag like this. It wouldn't be too challenging, and would be a perfect addition to all the pallet art I already have in my house. 

I also want a print of Avenue In The Rain. I have loved this painting since I first saw it hanging in the fictional Oval Office in the West Wing.

I am excited to add a little more patriotism to my house. 


  1. Love that pallet flag! And I saw another blog friend who got that same cutting board- jealous! ;)

  2. that cutting board is awesome! I've seen the ones of different states before (luckily New Mexico,where I'm from, would have a decent space to cut things on!), but I really like the whole United States shape!

  3. I love that cutting board. I may or may not have purchased it on impulse because I'm having a slightly less than fabulous day (and my husband isn't even deployed).

    Thinking of you!
