If These Photographs Don’t Have Americana Written All Over Them, Then I Don’t Know What Does…

Glamour July 1942 American Flags

Tuesday, November 6, 2012 is election day and it’s got me thinking in red, white, and blue and everything Americana! President Obama is the first president I ever voted for… and if I were alive in the 60’s I would have voted for Kennedy as well. These are the only two men who, in my very humble opinion, have been worthy of the title. Well, besides Lincoln and Clinton and Washington maybe, and of course President Polk {because he is an ancestor of mine ~~ my dad’s mom’s maiden name was Polk}. I still absolutely adore President Obama and in fact can’t help but smile when I see him… and I will absolutely be voting for him in this election too. It doesn’t mean we can’t be friends if you don’t vote for him, but I will definitely be giving you the side eye 😉

In completely unrelated but somehow relevant news, this month Art.com’s Pinterest followers will have a chance to win a $500 Art.com shopping spree! How amazing is that? October will be over before we know it so go now and follow Art.com’s Pinterest Boards so you don’t miss your chance to win.

In the mean time, here are some of my FAVORITE Americana photographs and prints all available at the Art.com Americana Gallery {links below each work}

Aren’t they all just so fabulous? Which is your favorite?

I love this pretty little video depicting Art.com’s custom frame shop in Ohio… and I love that they’re not only handcrafted in America but how they cut each frame individually per order, building each frame one at a time. Workmanship is underrated these days.

    Love this post and I’m voting for Obama. I hate all this public “unfollowing” blogs especially by anonymous people. Why can’t they just unfollow without the nastiness? I’ve been unfollowed for posting fez hats, pinatas, and other things with nasty posts and comments made about me, so I get it. But, I must say that I never find these comments under all the religious posts I’ve been reading recently on crafts’ blogs! I mean there was a post recenty, “Why are all your favorite bloggers Mormon?” and I’m not Mormon but I like the site so I skipped over the post and that was that. It seems like religion gets a pass but politics doesn’t. Love the photos and am a proud democrat.

    Obama’s father is Frank Marshall Davis, a super-communist. See the documentary “Dreams from my REAL father”. It backs up this fact with enough evidence to convince even the most die-hard Obama drone. His mother, Ann Dunham, appeared in nude photos taken by FM Davis, and sold to kinky magazines.
    This is something every American should know.
