Fourth of July Table

Fourth of July is just around the corner, yet I am just getting my decor done! I didn't do much inside the house, but I did want a centerpiece on my dining table. This is what I came up with, and I was very happy with how it turned out. :)

I used a red fabric placemat for the bottom along with the striped hand towel.

This is a tin can that I wrapped in red, white, and blue coordinating scrapbook paper. The stars were cut with my Cricut and glued to cookie sticks then placed at varying heights. Last, I added the flag.

I made the "fireworks" using toilet paper rolls, scrapbook paper, and silver tinsel/basket filler. They were probably my favorite part of the centerpiece!

And these stars were a last minute idea to complete the whole setting.

Weekly Finds

Have I mentioned that I Goodwill?! :)
Here are a couple things I found this weekend.

Zebra print curtain panels:

I got six panels for $4.00! They're about 5 feet wide and 7 feet long and in excellent shape!


Now I don't have anywhere in my house that I plan to hang these--they won't match my decor (although I am considering black and white and turqoise in the office... eventually)--but I didn't get them with the intention of hanging them here. I'm helping throw a bridal shower next month, and we are going with zebra print and hot pink for the theme. Perfect for tablecloths, I'm thinking!!

And another find I'm ThRiLLeD about is this white pedestal bowl/compote:

I do looove my white dishes! If I remember right, this was $1.99.

I Was Featured!

So recently I was featured on a couple sites, and I never did post anything about it. I was sooo excited, but I really didn't think about doing this until I saw a couple other bloggers do it. Well here it is, my post celebrating being featured!!



Both of these blogs are run by Ginger; one is her personal blog, and one is a blog shop. Both are awesome!

She showed this bridal shower at Appleseed Gifts and my monogrammed flower pot at SSB.

Thanks, Ginger!

Father's Day Gift

I finally got a chance to post some pictures of Caden's present to his Daddy for Father's Day this past Sunday.

I started off with an 11x14 dark wood frame....

.....and ended up with this framed scrapbook page.

"Daddeee" will be taking it to work to hang in his office. :)

I'm going to link this to a few parties:

Happy Father's Day!

I had a great Father's Day... and I'm not a dad! ;) I did get to spend it with my daddy though... as well as with my husband and son, mom, sister and her family, and a brother and his family. Good times!

This is a picture of my husband and son:
*great daddy, great son*

Happy Father's Day!

Fourth of July Decorating

All of the decorating in this post is outside in my yard and garden.
This first picture isn't anything for the 4th really, but I did want to show it. :) It's a mandevilla vine and trellis that I planted last week. It's on my front porch.

And hanging right above it next to my front door is this American flag metal sign that I got last week. I still find it hard to believe that the 4th of July is just a couple weeks away!

Oh and by the way, I paid $.50 -- yes, that is fifty cents -- for this flag!! It had a $9.99 tag on it; I was actually taking it to the register to see if it was on sale because some other Americana items were, and when I got there, it rang up for $.50!!

Remember my begonias in my monogrammed pot? I stuck a cute little American flag in there.


And I put one more small decoration out but totally forgot to take a picture... so hopefully I can do that tomorrow!
