~ Vintage Patarotic Collictables~

Happy Memorial Day to all my friend's out there! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend on this special Holiday weekend. Today I joining in on a blog party over at Alabaster Rose Designs. For ~Vintage Summer Monday's~.

We have a collection of patriotic inspired advertisement cards. And also some vintage parade flags and postcards. I thought this one here with a black Uncle Sam was quite interesting when I purchased it. Here he is dancing with a banjo.

In theses pictures I have a Uncle Sam advertisement card for bicycles He is catching a ride in this one. The other little card is a French advertisement card with a circus scene the little guy is wearing a flag costume.

And here is a shot of the whole collection on a Mantle I bought at a flea market.

In this postcard is a couple of children in a balloon and the boy is holding the American flag on there way up up and away.
Here we have some antique horns and tin and cardboard. And a antique children's book with Uncle Sam. The item on the bottom left is a cigar advertisement Peace with the flag we picked up at a flea market here in town.

And then there is this cute antique photo of children celebrating a patriotic pageant. I found this one on e-bay. There are young children dressed as Uncle Sam ,Miss Liberty, and Christopher Columbus. I'm not sure what the other girl is dressed as.

Well I hope you enjoy this special day as we honor our veterans and our fallen soldiers. Have a good and safe rest of the weekend......Julian
