Celebrate Stars & Stripes!

It's hard to think of summer without red, white and blue. Flag Day, the 4th of July and my birthday are in quick succession of each other, so it's only natural these colors make me smile. Hope they make you smile too!

I think this chest is fantastic! The gold details and circle of stars give it sophistication.

Talk about adding a little vibrancy to your dining experience!

Just in case red is not your thing.

Warning: this much sugar could cause sparks.

Someone very patriotic must live here!

Very clever, but you know I want to cut that fringe short!

Blue striped lantern, perfect all summer.

Wish I was here....

Now this is my kind of dessert. I will be making this exact red velvet berry cake....wish me luck!
 Wishing you a great 4th of July weekend!!!

  2. Love the inspiration!! Love the benches on the porch and I have made a very similar version of your fabulous cake - a Martha Stewart recipe but with yellow cake - good luck. I'm sure it will be delicious!! Happy fourth to you and your family!!

  3. It's a Grand Old Flag, our stars and stripes. I love the banners hanging from the porch in the next to last photograph. Thanks for sharing these photographs. Reggie
