Living in an 1820’s farmhouse is very special. Aside from the quirks and the lengthy list of projects that need to happen, laying our roots in this farmhouse is an honor.
So, when I saw this great huge old flag at one of my favorite antique shops, I knew I had to have it for our home. And I knew of two places where I thought I could hang it.
First, I thought it would look awesome hanging on the side of our barn. But the flag is so beautiful, and old, and full of history in and of itself, I wanted to hang it inside.
So I went with plan B. I hung it in our upstairs hallway. The flag measures 9 feet 10 inches by 4 feet 10 inches, and it fits this spot perfectly.
I walk by this flag several times a day, and I feel such a sense of pride each and every time. It is so fitting to have an old American flag hanging in an old, American farmhouse.
