I’ve been in Texas for about eight days and just returned. My last post went out while I was away and after looking at it, I decided I could make it better than it was.

If you missed it, you can view it here; but looking at the above photo I just wasn’t happy how the blue in the star was with the blue in the flag.
We spent the weekend at the cottage, so I took the flag with me. I decided it would look better with a thinly painted white border around the star. What do you think?
Then I started playing around to find a place to hang it at the cottage, instead of our condo. I tried it on our door as you can see in both these photos.
The problem we have on our exterior is windows, as in lots of windows; which is great for plenty of light in the cottage, but we don’t have much room to hang anything except on the door. (See the last photo of our cottage and you’ll see what I mean).
Next, I tried it on our mantel. So the question is door or mantel? Any suggestion?
Then I took a look at the flowers I planted two weeks ago in the chair. I know it’s only been the two weeks, but they’re looking great and growing. The one on the left was two weeks ago and the right one is now.
Almost three years ago, I purchased the copper boiler above at a flea market.
Finally, Mr. Cottage drilled some holes in the bottom of it, he put some bricks in, and then we put two large hanging baskets of Dragon Wing Begonias in it. Not having it filled with dirt will make it easier to store away for winter.
See, lots of windows! So if you have a suggestion for where my rustic flag would look best for the Fourth of July, feel free to leave a comment below.
