I hope you are enjoying life as June is flying by
and July is quickly approaching.
It's crazy how fast the days are passing.....me MeeMee always told me
as I got older the days would go faster.
I should have believed her.....she was soooo right!
Since the 4th of July is heading this way at warp speed, I guess
I had better get ready!
Here's our dining room table all decked out in
red, white and blue....
I used several small tablecloths....
.....all layered on top of each other.....
I like the way they all go together.
What do you think?
I folded another tablecloth and let it run
down the rungs of my little red ladder.
A vase of silk bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes
fits right in with the red, white and blue party
on the dining room table!
Some pretty ribbon and a little, red metal bucket
finish off this tablescape nicely.
When we have company and eat at the dining room table,
the little red ladder sits on the floor
so everyone can visit!
I enjoy getting my 4th of July box
out of the storage room.
I like having little touches of Americana
around the house....let me show you!
The handsome guy in the flight gear is
my Dad. He was a tail gunner in WWII.
His plane was shot down during a mission and he
was held in a POW camp by the Germans in
for nine months.
I sure am proud of his bravery and sacrifice!
Uncle Sam was wondering what plans you have for the 4th of July?!
I hope you have something fun planned for the 4th....
maybe a picnic.....
or a camping trip.....
or a BBQ.....
or a party at a friend's house.....
with a big ol' glass of sweet tea while
swinging in a porch swing!
Thanks so much, Glitterinas, for letting me share
some red, white and blue with you!
Until next time,
