My yards are looking sparse for blooms by now, so this is what's left. I guess when we start looking, there is more than we think . . .
Red . . .
White . . .
Red . . .
The sun was just coming up . . . white . . .
Then I looked up. We all have lots of blue! YAY!
Let's go on inside -
What are the odds I'd find these three bobbins out of the
entire basket of them, in the colors I wanted?
Everything was brown, pink, green . . .
I found these at one of the antique stores I
combed through while in Montana!
The guy in security at the airport was not impressed
by my treasures. He made my carry-on suitcase,
(which I specifically brought to bring my finds home in)
go back THREE times through X-Ray.
Come on through the kitchen . . .
Connie - do you recognize the bear you
gave me for my birthday one year? :)
Who doesn't love the Goose Berry Patch cookbooks?
My lifeline recipe file . . .
Nothing says summer like a big bowl of cherries!
Table is set. Have a seat!
I made a trip to Home Goods yesterday. Ummm . . . I can't
tell you what exactly I got 'cause if my husband reads this -
I'm dead. Let's just say the only pieces of these
four place settings that I had in the hutch yesterday
morning, was the four blue salad plates under the bowls.
Well, and the napkins, glasses and silver of course! (hehehe)
Love the mercury glass votive holders.
the salad plates that inspired it all . . . (love you Honey!)
And the bowls. I love it all together!
This sure was fun to play with. Too bad we don't get to eat here - we'll be over at our friend's Dale & Joy's for a BBQ and a nice relaxing day! Brauts on the BBQ, shrimp cocktails for appetizers, fresh summer fruit, nice bottle of wine - and that's only what I'm bringing. Who knows what other yummy things Joy'll have out.
I will have to keep reminding myself of the DIET!! Ugh. What a way to ruin the party . . .
Oh well! :) I've lost 8 pounds and have 7 more to go. And a month long vacation in there to survive. We have my nephew's wedding on 9-5 and I do NOT want anything to jiggle when I get out on that dance floor! :)
Everyone have a wonderful, fun and SAFE Independence Day!!
