Happy Independence Day!!!

002003006   004 005

I hope everyone has wonderful plans for this 4th of July weekend! It is going to be hot here in

Texas...of course;)...but we plan to enjoy all of the festivities anyway!

I wanted to share this gorgeous Santos I won from LaurieAnna's with you! Isn't she wonderful? I

made her a sash from some ribbon and vintage cards so she could celebrate the 4th in style! I love

her! The other pics are just some little goodies I sit out from year to year.

Happy Independence Day Everyone!!!

Lots of Love!!!

Cathy

I love it that you decorate for July 4th. my little neighborhood has a service provided by the boy scouts and they come and places a huge flag in front of each of our yards. If it ever stops raining, I will take a good picture.
