What happened to June? How in the world did we get to July? I thought since we are having company for the 4th I'd decorate a little. The inspiration, the fifty cent molded plastic American Eagle I found.
I pulled out a box and a bag. All these small flags came from a rummage sale a few years ago, as did the
container they are in.
I hung the hearts I've been hanging for lo these many years. Made them maybe 25/30 years ago.
Here's the genuine molded plastic eagle.
There is the molded plastic bust of Lincoln, and my cool new/old boater hat. The Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Bell also have a place on the mantle as does the key to Independence Hall. I do love Independence Day.
It took a 87 degree day to get me to bake. Do I buy one banana at a time? I am so used to buying them by the bunch.
The house smelled so good and one guy was very happy he didn't eat his bananas until they were baked into these golden loaves.
A few more photos of my decorations and then out to the deck to prepare for our guests. (No babygrand this holiday :-(
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day!
