Ready For The 4th Of July and Summertime Fun???

Happy Wednesday!!! It is hard to believe that in one week it is The 4th Of July!!! I am feeling less than ready for it. I love to decorate the outside of my house, but we have been so busy, I haven't gotten around to it. The clock is ticking. Our town has a parade that the kids participate in and then a big party at our local park with fireworks and lots of fun. This year my son will be in the parade on a decorated truck with his baseball All Star Team. They have so.. much fun with water balloons and water guns...oh to be a kid again.....
Do you love to decorate for The 4th of July??? I also love to keep up the red, white and blue theme through the summer. To me, the colors just say "SUMMER IS HERE"!!! 
We recently added some great Americans/ Summertime items to our Etsy Shop
Come take a look, you may find something you can't live without.......
Love this Americana Pillow . The flag on it is vintage
I have this Bunting made with vintage hankies hanging on my umbrella in the backyard. How cute is this?? Mmm........ it really is perfect. This really adds a special touch to a backyard BBQ.
What says Summer more than camping??? 
This Pillow is made with a vintage American flag. Perfect pillow for your front porch.
More Bunting. These have become a new favorite thing of mine. We have other styles other than the patriotic ones. They are so cute on a front porch, backyard, kitchen etc..We even have some pink and blue ones that would be so...perfect for a baby shower. I wish I had one to give :))

I can't end this post without saying "Happy Birthday " to my son Blake who will turn 12 tomorrow!!! He has grown in to such a wonderful young man. I could not be more proud of him. I LOVE YOU!!!

What is more American than baseball?? These next few pictures were taken at his LL All Star Game on Monday night. A comeback win, awesome team spirit and Blake even hit a HOME RUN!!!A great win for a bunch of really nice boys. We play again tonight! 

During the National guy is #32

Have a great week!!



  1. Hi Cheryl,

    Happy early 4th of July to you! Sounds like you will be having so much fun celebrating the Red, White, and Blue next week! I love to decorate too for the seasons - but sadly, too many things are going on right now that don't allow for me to have as much fun with that! But that's what blogs are for - looking at other people's inspiration! :) Love the cute vintage bunting, amongst all the other patriotic pics! Your son is too cute. I so miss my older one being that age and attending all of his baseball games - now he is all about football! They grow up way too fast - enjoy every minute of it!


  2. Love all your patriotic inspiration, Cheryl! Can't believe it either, that July is just around the corner.
