You have Abraham Lincoln cookie cutters! I'm dying of jealousy. I can see why you didn't want to part with that sweet lady. That face! Those beaded arms! Everything is gorgeous!

Oops I was busy pinning and forgot to comment :) It's never too late to look at 4th Of July stuff for me. I have to run and see where my shortening tin is now :)


Great pics! It is all so cute and perfect for the holiday! I love the sailors and the Uncle Sam firecracker and the nurse with the wonky head...I bet your neighbors take a little trek by your house just to see your window displays! Happy 4th, hope it is fun and safe! karen....

Wonderful displays. I have a long way to go to get my single display anywhere near as complete as yours. Happy 4th of July.

Hey Magpie!
I have been wanting to Email you for sometime now. Today when I saw your Independence Day post, I remembered why.
Ever since you first ran your contest to name the Little Boy Mannequin, I wanted to tell you my suggestion.
Someone may have already said this to you, but ever since I first laid eyes on him, I just knew his name was... HENRY.
From time to time I see him pop-up on your blog & I yell to my wife, "Hey, Magpie Ethel has HENRY again today!"
Well today, my wife (Donna) wisely said, "You better Email Magpie Ethel with your suggestion, before she names him something else. That is... if you know what's good for you."
So, I officially submit his name, HENRY. I hope you like it & agree.
My wife Donna & I are big fans & read your column everyday. You are a cool inspiration!
Peace... George


Omg! Awesome eye candy!
I hope you have a fab holiday!


OMG! You have so many cute pieces. Can't choose a favorite ... but I am going to keep my eyes open for some sailor boy cuties.
Good job! and Happy July 4th !!!

I'm glad that I snuck a quick peek at your blog before the gang arrives at the lake. I almost missed all your patriotic eye candy. Another fabuluous holiday with all your amazing collections.

Love your patriotic displays 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
I'm really behind on your blog posts!! Love your use of Christmas ornaments and other red, white and blue things in your decor. Got some good ideas from you 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸


Oh for goodness sakes! I missed this post; probably because I was surrounded by Rubbermaid bins and hundreds (yes really) of cardboard boxes from the move! LOVE the plane on the tally! I'm always watching for USAF related pieces since my Ben has been in since '02. FUN stuff Laurie!
