I work as a Department of the Army Civilian at Fort Leonard wood, MO. My whole office is decorated in Americana and these are some of my favorite pieces.
This is a handmade flag from some old wood pieces, string, and material. The wood was from an old house being torn down. Hangs behind me at my desk in my work office.
A chair that was being thrown out…was hand painted by an Army spouse and sold at a fund raiser ($12)!!! What I really love is that she DID NOT refinish it etc prior to painting…just painted on it as is. Very quaint. :O)
Sitting on the chair I have my handmade Americana Raggedy Ann and an heart shaped box that the same spouse made.
Cat family made from left over scrap material (they are very patriotic kitties).
Old picnic basket rescued from a garage sale and painted Americana (yes..same spouse).
Small step stool rescued from the garbage and painted…
A friend got me this in New Orleans during Mardi Graz about 10 years ago.
