We have some time until Independence Day, but the table needs to be set early,
for some extra time to enjoy the holiday theme!
I used my Wilendur "Mountain Ash" tablecloth, with the gorgeous red
and blue berries. Westmoreland Glass candlesticks, Hazel Atlas dessert cups.
I've been wanting to use the two Nikko cloud plates since I thrifted them.
Perfect for this table.
I used some things I already had for the centerpiece. I made the pinwheels a
few years ago. I decorated the birdhouse on the right, and Patti of Paintin' Patti
blog decorated & sent me the one on the left in a bloggers swap. My friend
Debbie of My Vintage Daydreams blog sent me the Virginia souvenir glass.
Thanks for helping me set my holiday table bloggy friends!
I bought the flag pin right after 9/11. It still makes me sad to look at it...
We have so many, from our forefathers to the present, to thank for our freedom.
I used tags I also made a couple years ago to decorate the plates.
Whether you have a beach day, and a picnic or barbeque, and enjoy some
festive fireworks...take the time to think of all of those who fought for the
freedom of our country and continue to do so.
Happy Independence Day!
I love fresh Blueberries. Better still is getting to pick them at a local farm.
That will start here mid-July, can't wait! Fresh baked blueberry muffin anyone?
We have another wild group of territorial Hummingbirds summering
with us. I captured 4 of them in this photo (descending on the feeder),
but there were actually 6 birds jockeying for 4 flowers.
Don't feel too badly for them, there are two more feeders in our backyard.
They zip back and forth between them.
Don't know about your pets, but Doyle likes nothing better than drinking
from a running hose outside, second best is finding an unexpected
bucket of fresh water.
That is it for now. I'm trying to do a post every couple weeks. There are so
many outdoor activities that keep us busy in the summer. Thanks for
taking the time to stop by!
