Happy 4th of July.....and taking a break


It's been a while since I've posted and I miss you guys!   

 My 16 year old niece passed away unexpectedly and I'm sure you can understand how devastated everyone in our family is.......   I hope to be back to a somewhat "normal blogging routine" in a couple of weeks.   Until then....have a wonderful and safe 4th.

Patriotic Love in Soft Pastels


The Patriotic holidays are just around the corner.....in early summer we celebrate Memorial Day,  mid summer we celebrate the 4th of July,  and at the end of summer we celebrate Labor Day.     I usually bring out my Patriotic decor about the middle of May and leave it up til after Labor Day.     I never tire of  Red,  White and Blue but sometimes..... for a change...... I love to use the softer pastel colors of Patriotic decor that compliment my existing decor so well. 

Here's some examples showing how I've used pastel colors in my Patriotic decor over the years.......

Grillin & Chillin on the Porch


H loves to grill & chill on the front porch when we entertain friends and family.    Don't ask me why,  but for some reason we've never had a spot on the porch for him to grill.....he just drags out the grill and cooks on the driveway!

After Easter Mantel


Well,  I took down my Easter mantel.....now what do I do????    It's too early for a summer mantel...maybe something for Memorial Day?     I finally  decided to create a non seasonal....non holiday mantel in it's place. 
 The inspiration for my mantel came from a drive in the country that H & I recently took and a discounted 2019 calendar that I had  received from Amazon.  .
