When the Paper rockets and sparkly garland hangs from the red chandy..
It is offically July in the Spoonful house.
There are little bits of red, white and blue tucked in all over the house.
The feather tree sits pretty on the porch
And shiny stars hang from the ceiling.
I love to decorate for the 4th of July.
We are not planning anything big or fancy this year,
Other then our neighbor and Mother, we not expecting any company.
We are just planning to chill poolside with
some grilled bugers and hot dogs , a few pasta salads and a little something sweet.
I am looking forward to a quiet stess free holiday.
No fuss.. no mess.
Sometimes I like it that way.
My hydrangia's are sadly coming to an end already ~
The gardens seem to be changing so quickly this year.
There is something about clipping flowers from my garden that makes me happy.
They smile at me every time I walk into the kitchen.
Oh Geez.. I almost forgot to show you Darla's fancy nails
Before you report me for animal abuse..
she loves it!
She gets even more prissy when her nails are done.
It's easy project time.
I found this ceramic tree at a thrift shop last year,
my intentions for it was to dress it up for Halloween.
And then this morning, I woke up thinking about it,
and I was also thinking that I do not need any more Halloween decorations.
Ok, maybe I do.. but not now.
This tree I thought, would be perfect all dressed up in red, white and blue.
So there I went..
outside with an arm load of glitter, paint brushes and glue
Layer by layer I filled in the patterns on the tree with glue then glitter.
Little shiny bits would be a perfect touch..
And of course,
A pretty red star on top to make it complete.
I wanted to take a moment and thank all of the new Spoonful followers.
If you have a blog, and I don't already follow it..
Please let me know so that I can follow you back.
Have a wonderful new week everyone
ps.. Has anyone else been having trouble with using the spell check?
