4th ~ The Details

Happy summer afternoon to all....I wanted to share some 4th details that I have been playing with today. Some of these are tried and true and "must~do" traditions for the family. All are lots of fun...it's all in the details...right?!


Old glories from the dollar bins...here and there and everywhere!!!
Been making these for years...in fact the world would cease to exist if I didn't have these on had for the 4th....what are they? Rolos {or any round tube of candy} wrapped with foil with a foil pipe cleaner as a wick...firecracker favors!


Red, White and Blue quilts...

Yummy family favorite sugar cookies...decorated with patriotic flair...

These spray bottles will be filled with lemonade for the young folk or anyone that is young~at~heart...just a fun and festive way to drink a refreshing beverage!


I punched out some stars and glue~sticked them to the spray bottles...

4th festive~ness achieved!

Then I took the Easter tree that I made in spring and hot glued some flags here and there and added some hanging wooden stars...

Twigs, flags, stars, and coffee filters...love it!

I can smell the fireworks...

I even decorated the pooch...she's like..."who are these people and WHY can't I chew all this stuff?"
I am off to make pancakes for dinner...my favorite!

Hey Ramona! Everything's so cute, including your new sweet puppy! I'm totally making those firecracker candy things. My son and his buddies will have a ball with those. :) Happy 4th to you!
