Patriotic Banner Swap...WWII Images!
World War II Images...Banner Swap!
My good friend Tammy of Tammy's In Love and I missed out on the Patriotic Banner Swap...so we decided to do one of our own. The challenge was to use vintage WWII propaganda images. Tammy chose some of my favorites as you will see further on...but my Disney loving heart just had to see what I could find Mickey-wise.
According to my old friend Wikipedia, "Between 1942 and 1945, during World War II, Walt Disney was involved in the production of propaganda films for the U.S. Government. The widespread familiarity of Walt Disney's productions benefited the U.S. Government in producing pro-American war propaganda in an effort to increase support for the war."
My "Toons at War" Pennants.
I used a cool shield graphic I found on Pinterest.
The tag was a large brown craft paper about 5 x 11 in.
I turned the music upside down so the title would be visible.
...or else I goofed five times...lol!
Tammy's WWII Tags...
My package came wrapped in a map of Minnesota!
So clever...Tammy marked her house!
It's so nice to know our place on the planet.
I always have a map in my head of where I am..."You are Here!"
Buy War Bonds!
Clean your plate!
Plant a Victory Garden!
Loose Lips Sink Ships!
Eat M & M's...It's the Patriotic thing to do!
Tammy sent a lot of fun things in her package...like this cute
cowboy set ...a card and small gift box.
I have always loved vintage cowboy
I am so thankful for the friendship I have found in my little blogging circle. Tammy has become such a good friend...it's almost as if we have always known each other. She is my childhood friend...separated only by mountains and prairie.
Have a Fabulous Fourth!
I almost missed blogging for the Fourth...We have a couple of granddaughters spending the holiday with us and we've been doing all the nearby "touristy" things this week.
