picket fence flag.

I've been DREAMING about picket fence projects ever since we scored all the fence scraps from our neighbors. Keeping the picket momentum going, and since it's July, and considering our patriotic vacation in DC - I'll let you connect the rest of the dots. So here it is, our latest picket project - a Picket Fence American Flag!

I researched the dimensions of the American Flag because there is a science to it's size, but decided to wing it a bit when the pickets wouldn't cooperate at their full width. I'm very excited about this one, McAllister hung it from our pergola in the backyard and I think it looks FAB!

Who knows, since our picket fence planter boxes were such a hit at the Dirty Birdies sale, these may be up for sale too!

Nic- it turned out great! Those will definitely be a hit. I feel so unproductive!

McAllister, You'd be happy about this; Tom and I went to the Nationals Demolition Derby last week and they played the Canadian and American Athens. I sang both!

Do you antique the colors on the Canadian flag too? (Antique white will do, Brick Reds, and Colonial Blues) If so, I'll take both!

Oh, when is my order ready? Free Delivery too please!
