Red *~* White *~* Blue......Salute!

Hi there!

Summer is really starting to get going now with June almost in the rear view mirror.....

My roses 2011 ~ Trying to enjoy before June is over....

Here in the U.S.A. it is almost time for July 4th Independence Day.  Time to celebrate with everything red white & true blue.  I decided to quickly find & post some patriotic colors to share for inspiration floating around.  With June almost over, it is always a little sad.  I love June! Sweet beautiful June. You know....the month of roses, weddings, pearls and on and on and on. 

I have an apple tree in my backyard that for some reason decides about now, to start to reconsider all of this leaf business.  So.....

I have a few yellow falling leaves in my yard already from my apple tree.  (I could show you a picture but why ruin my cheery summer blog post here? :) Sigh...why so soon?

 Let see....

   How about these cute blue Ball jars I found fleaing?
         Then..... how about roses in the blue Ball jar?
 How about Christmas in July? Do you love or hate people who go this route? :) Well I have a lovely guest from Spain and decided that he and his family needed an American adornment for their Christmas tree come December, so I found this yesterday in a cute gift shop locally.  It was just what I was looking for. The old fashion German glass...perfect.  This was found at the Mole Hole ~ Marshall, MI.  Thank you Mole Hole!

  How about a cute vintage tablecloth for color.  Love the fruit & flowers...

 From earlier days living on the East Coast no Fourth of July look was complete (or home) without the good old blue & white china.....with red flowers of course. :)

So many things so many ways...if I come across more I will post. 

They are not long, the days of wine and roses: ... so....

I hope you enjoy your holiday celebrations!


  1. Hi Fellow blogger!! I am following your blog now, hope you'll get a chance to follow mine. Will check out your Etsy shop also - mine has been dormant for quite a while, time to get busy and liven up my inventory!!!

  2. Hi there! Thanks so much!

    I am off to follow..... ;)

  3. Love your blog! :) By the way I can't conceive of Christmas in July, because when Christmas really comes, I'm always saying, "Wait, wasn't it just July?"

  4. Why thank you! I am NOT a Christmas~in~July person normally either. Funny! No kidding. Wasn't it just here?? ;)
