Getting Ready To Celebrate



















One more day to prepare for the gang...

Gorgeous day today filled with billowy white clouds against a brilliant blue sky!

Digging out the Independence Day decorations and everything else red, white and blue.

Joan of Anything Goes Here just reminded me that she is having a Vintage 4th of July Blog party so I am linking up and if you want to see more red white and blue....that's the place to be!

Took a road trip to buy some supplies and detoured to a few little shops...
...as always, found some goodies to bring home.
I will try to get those bits and bobs photographed tomorrow morning to share with you all...

Have a good rest and a wonderful Thursday!
:)

Sweet! Your lobelia looks great...(blue flowers are my favorite), mine seems to have drowned with all the rain we had this month.
