Rah, Rah, Sis Boom Bah! Spring has sprung and with it Memorial Day, Father's Day and the Fourth of July. This is the season we celebrate our freedom, those who have come before us and given us that freedom, and our dads. It's a period to be patriotic and grateful, and with the warmer weather a time to appreciate the beauty of our country and outdoor play.
Old Glory's hues of red, white and blue create a striking backdrop for projects integrating summer themes into their stories. The store has a nice selection of red-white-blue decor to add a patriotic punch to anything you desire. There's a little wooden bear pull-toy as well as a furry bear decked out in the flag's colors, and a table with four Raggedy Ann and Andy type dolls playing a lively game of checkers. Select some pretty Americana signs to perhaps be used for party accents or placements. And don't forget our scale sized box of fireworks!
You'll find wading pools for the kids as well as barbecues for the grown-ups, one with a set of tongs attached. We have two dapper chefs to help things along, too. These beautifully detailed figurines are from Falcon and were designed by the late Marcia Backstrom. You can provide your chefs -- or preferred figurines -- with mitts, aprons and towels from our revolving selection of leisure time must haves.
The shop carries outdoor furniture...
On the subject of things nautical, remember to take a look at our selection of sailing vessels. There are several different types, including a model of a Viking ship -- very impressive!
At the end of the day, after grilling or sailing and taking a little swim, a newspaper hat will put the lid on things. You'll find lots of them at Ms. Peggie's, too!
|Just for fun!|
