Happy 4th of July!

I hope you are having a wonderful time with your family and friends over this long weekend!

I love the 4th of July….family BBQs, watermelon and lots of cherries and strawberry shortcake. And, of course, beautiful fireworks. The simplicity in the celebration is very appealing, and it brings everyone together. Love that.

My husband and I went to see the new movie Free State of Jones on Friday night.  Truly, the Civil War was a sad event in our nation’s history, and it was incredible to learn the depth of the conflict on so many levels. Very interesting. So many sacrifices made in our young history as a country, and so many things for us to be thankful for, and to still learn.

To celebrate Independence Day, I put together this firecracker of a centerpiece. You know how much I love making pennants! They really are a great way to display vintage doo-dads and ephemera.
