FRIDAY FAVE-PATRIOTIC QUILT

 

This week, I'm only sharing one favorite. Since there will not be food on the table in our study, I'm displaying a very special quilt on this table for the 4th of July.

RED WHITE AND BLUE SNACK TABLE


 
We usually celebrate the 4th of July outside. Rain is predicted for Saturday, so I'm trying to set up some of it inside, but I'm still hoping that it can all go outside on Saturday. This table began with a quilt I bought at an estate sale several years ago.

PATRIOTIC VIGNETTES

 As I was posting these pictures, I realized that I may have an estate sale addiction.  In the above vignette, both the framed picture and the tile came from estate sales.

PATRIOTIC TABLESCAPE



I recently went to Sur La table. Of course, bargain hunter that I am, I headed straight for the sale racks.  I found four of these shirt striped placemats and four red napkins to bring home with me.

RED WHITE AND BLUE MANTEL


Honey, I'm home. I know -- You didn't know I'd been gone. I have had a lot going on, and I kind of lost my motivation and my get-up-and-go. I thought I might not return to blogging, but I started missing all of you, so I'm baaack.

NOT YOUR NORMAL RED WHITE AND BLUE

RED WHITE BLUE 1

Our Memorial Day table is red, white, and pastel blue. I normally use a deep cobalt blue in patriotic table settings.

DINING WITH STARS AND STRIPES

4th of July Table 2

One of the tables for our 4th of July celebration is all about the stars and stripes.  I think I purchased the tablecloth at Target.

4TH OF JULY PORCH

4th of July Porch 1

Our back porch is getting her 4th of July décor.  There are four rockers on our back porch, two on each end.  This is one-half of the porch.

4TH OF JULY PAR-TAY!

4th of July 1

What is it about swimming that makes people sooo hungry?  We celebrate the 4th with a swimming party, and our grandchildren swim for awhile, then they want to eat for awhile; swim again; eat again, and the cycle continues into the night.

LITTLE PATRIOTIC VIGNETTES

4th of July

Monday, I shared my patriotic mantel, and yesterday, I shared a 4th of July parade in the neighborhood.  I just can’t help myself.  If it’s red, white, and blue, it has to be in a vignette for Independence Day.

4th of July

Uncle Sam has invaded our fireplace mantel.  Actually, several of them are making an appearance.

MOSAIC MONDAY-FUN ON THE FOURTH!

For Mosaic Monday hosted by our sweet Mary at Little Red House, I am sharing photos of the Fourth of July celebration (no, it's not more red, white and blue decor!)-- swimming, eating, and fireworks, all of which took place at our house. Thank you, Mary, for being such a gracious hostess for this event. Of course, if you are a regular visitor to my blog, you know that every day is mosaic day on my blog! I just "luv" mosaics!





UNDER WATER FUN FOR GRANDS (NEW UNDER WATER CAMERA FUN FOR ADULTS)!






EATING FUN!





SPARKLER FUN!


WATCHING FIREWORKS FUN!



GRANDCHILDREN COVERING EARS FUN!
(Mosaics created on Photoscape)

My grandchildren's dads had fun shooting fireworks under the pretense of entertaining their children, at least one of whom was covering his ears while screaming "I wanna go home"!

I hope everybody had a safe and fun 4th of July celebration!

Yes, our 4th was safe and fun! As I watched my son and son-in-law light fireworks, I was sure it was not going to be safe or fun--Forever the worried mother!


On the Fourth, I accidentally convinced my family that visiting blogs was a good thing! Among the foods I served, were several recipes from Blogville. I served Marinated Tomatoes (recipe from Mid Atlantic Martha), Baked Vidalia Onions (I'm sorry I failed to record whose blog featured this recipe-Please let me know if it was you, so I can give you credit), Strawberry Lemonade (recipe from Lace and Ivy Cottage), and Lemon Cream Berry Trifle (recipe from Kathleen Ellis Lifestyle Design). Since my friend, Susie, emailed me the recipe for Frozen Banana Salad, I kind of included that in the list of recipes I got from my computer! When someone raved about one of the delicious foods, I told them that I got the recipe from the computer. They gained a new appreciation for my blog visiting! Now, when I'm on the computer and they start rolling their eyes, I tell them I'm looking for recipes, and they stop the eye-rolling and smile at me! Thanks ladies. You may have helped me avoid a "computer intervention" by my family!


Be sure to go to Little Red House to see Mary's beautiful 4th of July mosaic, and to find links to all of the fun mosaics in Blogville today. Thank you so much for visiting me. laurie
