4th of july display

It all started with this:
june 2010 021 1 This truck was parked across the street and I loved colors all together here. And my wheels started turning.


(oh, you’ll be seeing more of the truck tomorrow. you just wait.)
I pulled out this chair that was supposed to be downstairs with the playroom table:
june 2010 090
Then a little of this: june 2010 096She’s sitting by my front door. I couldn’t leave well enough along, sooo july 2010 003 1
I pulled out a chunkalicious frame that used to be in my daughters’ room and stuck a flag inside. (if you ever see chunky frames at yard sales or thrift stores, BUY them!)
july 2010 005 1 Much better. See how the chair is trying to cover up the outlet? Love her even more.july 2010 006 1I’m trying to cover up my garden hose with these ones…just pretend it isn’t there, k?june 2010 120 1  
These luscious, REAL topiaries were at Walmart.
$11.
Couldn’t put it in my cart fast enough. It used to be tiny and has just taken off.

Here’s for the red, white, and blue! Hope your weekend is full of bbqs, fireworks, parades, water, Lee Greenwood, patriotism, flags, and sunshine.
I love the Fourth. Happy Birthday, USA!

  20. Those white frames really are attractive. Love your flower displays, too. The last one is very pretty.
    I have a new facelift on my blog and I'd love to have you stop over and see it and take a button. I love the way they did it.
    Have a Happy 4th !

  21. Yes, those colors are perfect (I'm not sure about the whole truck thing, yet.) I recently passed up a great chunky frame at GW. The thud noise you hear is me kicking myself! Your outdoor space looks wonderful--topiaries at Walmart-get out!
