Happy 4th of July!

Hello, Dear Ones!
I wanted to wish you all a very Happy 4th of July!
Blessings to you and your families and friends as you celebrate our nations freedom.




My 4th of July decorating:
poked a few flags in my basket of flowers,
one on a stack of books guarded by my parrot and
POOF!!
I'm done! :)


Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Some Gave All

I knew a man called him Sandy Kane
Few folks even knew his name
But a hero was he
Left a boy, came back a man
Still many just don't understand
About the reasons we are free

I can't forget the look in his eyes

Or the tears he cries
As he said these words to me

All gave some and some gave all

And some stood through for the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall
Some gave all

Now Sandy Kane is no longer here

But his words are oh so clear
As they echo through out our land
For all his friends who gave us all
Who stood the ground and took the fall
To help their fellow man

Love your country and live with pride

And don't forget those who died America can't you see

All gave some and some gave all

And some stood through for the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall
Some gave all

And if you ever think of me

Think of all your liberties and recall, yes recall
Some gave all

Some gave all
~ sung by Billy Ray Cyrus

  11. You are ready for the 4th! and your mantel looks so patriotic. My poor mantel doesn't have a flag anywhere near it. Guess I'd better get busy.

  18. One thing that I love about decorating for the 4th is that a few flags is all it takes to make a big statement. Easy Peasy! Wish all holiday decorating was that easy. I love your display on your mantel. Have a great day today!

  19. I love your mantel centerpiece. I have a hutch top I've never been too sure how to decorate, and I think an arrangement like yours would be wonderful there. I love the way you can change it for the holidays and the lights would light up my dark corner. Thanks so much for the inspiration. Now if I can just find a great basket like yours!

  27. Hi Shelia, Isn't our flag the perfect finishing touch to an already fabulous mantel? Happy 4th week. I was just looking over your Marie antoinette circle journal post and I think it would be so much fun. You are a very talented girl and Marie does look familiar! :) Linda
