hooray for the red, white & blue!

* * * Wishing everyone a happy Fourth of July! * * *


I bought this today at Whole Foods. I totally dig the chippy pot!

This is sort of stars-and-stripes ~ cottage style!
(Inspired by the sparkling creativity at the Tales from an OC Cottage blog)



Hoping to make some time for my Etsy shop in the midst of the holiday weekend.

Have a happy, festive and safe holiday weekend and
a happy Pink Saturday, too!

Super cute! Love all the stars and stripes! Happy 4th . Happy Pink Saturday!
Thanks for the compliments on my blog! I just changed it up for fun. I guess it was boring before everyone has just loved the new. I spent all afternoon looking for a new dog pic for my header and didn't come up with one I could use anyway (copyrights!!!) SOOO I have a sweet kitty! I love the look! I'll change it up again soon!
Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Lisa

I love that pot! It would be great for me because even if I killed the flowers I would still have a really cool pot. :) I will have to see if mine has some. Happy Independence Day!

Hi Elyse,
Love your new plant and the pot. And the starfish is so pretty. I keep wanting to decorate some of mine, it's on my list. I love anything beachy. And I always love your sweet little clips. I hope you and your family have a safe and happy holiday.
Hugs,
Kathy

Loving the pot too! It gives it a real character. And it is also the perfect pot to house that deep red blooms you have. :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

happy 4th, i love your chippy pot, i love my ceiling fan, its from lamps plus, they have a website www.lampsplus.com and free shipping, this ceiling fan even had the option for pink chandelier lights, but i thought i would go just white and save my family from more pink.

Elyse, I love the chippy bucket. It is such a lovely chippy color, perfect for today. I wish I had a Whole Foods near me so I could run out and get one!

Happy Fourth of July and Pink Saturday rolled into one!

I almost bought a rose that looked just like that, but instead I went for the flower bouquet. Now I want the rose!!! We are never happy are we, we want it all. I will just live life watching yours grow long after my flowers are gone. he he
Happy Pink Saturday and Happy 4th of July to you, Char
