Happy Fourth!

I added a few simple patriotic touches this year. This 48 star flag was an antique store find. I thought it looked good behind the red boots.
 Planted a few flags here.

 And just a single flag in the kitchen hutch.
 Here's a rerun of a vignette from the old house.
 Our front door at the old house decked out.
Last, I could not get this video turned so you'll have to turn your head. Next time I'll try to do a better job. Here's Bowie at the obstacle course at the  Dog Park.

It's been so hot here, I thought I'd do some painting in the office and doing some organizing in there. I'm taking a little blog break and will be back around the second week in July. Have a Happy, Happy Fourth!

  4. Leslie, I'm back and was wondering if you play with your little Sweet Shop anymore - it's just darling! Did you make any of your furnishings? Such cuteness.

    1. Hi Shelia, Thanks so much. I do pull out the Sweet Shoppe once in awhile. I think the most fun was putting it together. I was obsessed for over a month building little windows and baked goods. I painted a few pieces and ordered some. I did do the door, floors and windows and all the little details. So much fun. Have fun with your cute project!

  5. Hi Leslie! I'm in Ohio at my Mom's for her 87th birthday, and have my iPad. The video didn't show up on it. However, I did love seeing all your decor. Happy 4th to you and enjoy your break.
