Today we'll walk the dogs in a home-grown parade, eat watermelon in the park with 1,000 of our neighbors, attend a BBQ, and of course see some fireworks (a professional show we watch for free from nearby).
But first, I've fluffed the hutch I found in the alley. She's looking pretty cute!:
I used a bit of my blue/white and all-white china collections, some dried-out starfish, and some croquet balls I had kicking around:
White "Iceberg" roses from the front yard plonked in a chipped old teapot add a bit of Nature:
Rummaging around my pantry, I stumbled on a cookie tin with the perfect pinwheel lid--it sort of looks like those stationary fireworks that spin, doesn't it?:
A string caddy, an old serving platter, and a little sailboat I found somewhere for very little money make a cute tableau:
The beat-up croquet ball is part of a set I found--you guessed it! tossed out by the side of the road:
The sailboat at the top of the hutch is from Pottery Barn years ago. I stuck a cupcake-topper flag on it:
Some little flags stuck in a pitcher along with a starfish complete the fun look:
Have a fun Fourth, everyone! And remember to keep your cats and dogs safe and secure inside, away from the scary fireworks.
Looks terrific! I'm constantly impressed and inspired by your creativity and collection of collectables!ReplyDelete
