A President's Day Vintage Vignette

I bet you don't decorate for President's Day.  I have a small collection of presidential memorabilia that I have just put out on display in my living room in honor of President's Day.

I started a President's Day vignette with a wooden crate turned upside down on my coffee table.

Next I added a pair of Abraham Lincoln gold plaster bookends.  I just purchased these yesterday thrifting for $4.

Next I added four old books "Kennedy", "The Boys of '76", "Boyhood Adventures of Our Presidents" and "The Life and Selected Writings of Jefferson".

Then I propped a vintage framed Teddy "Roosevelt Creed" against the books.

And a "Roosevelt" campaign button (that was my dad's, all on a scrabble tile wooden holder).

Lastly, I added a vintage Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building vintage souvenir thermometers, mainly to balance out the vignette.

  3. Oh boy how my hubby would love this. We have lots of presidential stuff too but have not thought of making a holiday vignette out of it. I adore it.

  4. What a great couple of vignettes! I don't think I have one presidential item and you were able to rustle up all of this?? Awesome!

  5. As a librarian who must "weed" old books as a matter of course to make room for new ones, I'm glad to see you make good use of some older books. Would love to share this on a library post on Facebook for other librarians to see, with your permission. Thanks for the inspiration!
