« Aunt Lilly's Box | Main | My Favorite Fourth of July Find »

June 30, 2009



You know, I've never decorated for the 4th. I really should. You inspire me. I will have to start collecting for next year.


I have told you before that we think alike. I too have patriotic conversation hearts. Your flag garland that I bought on Etsy is hanging from my mantel. Have you seen the Bethany Lowe sparklers? They are really cute! I love your pictures of how you display things. So fun!!!


These are all fabulous!!! But my fave is the horn and of course your Dad and his brother.

Have a fantastic day.



What an awesome repurposing of some totally unrelated items the make your displays absolutly POP!!! You have a great eye...and a great way of combining stuff! Thanks for sharing!! *elaine*


So many good ideas! (So little time before the 4th!) I loved that little picture of the boys with the flag the second I saw it, and the fact that it's your dad is really great. I've only ever found two of those beaded baskets in my travels, by the way.

Love your July 4th displays! So much fun - they make me smile!

Your little "cotton couple" are so sweet, and the little blue patriot on the lid is so cute - I also LOVE the pic of your dad and his brother (very special), and the horn! So much to love - Happy 4th of July to you!

Take care, Kathy
