This, That, and The Other Things!!

So it is inspiration Friday, once again.

I got inspired yesterday, to start decorating for the 4th of July. Thought you might like to be inspired, to get out the red, white, and blue. I went to my favorite little thrift store yesterday, just to look around. I got more flags for my collection. Every year I buy more.

I got some big ones for outside, but the ones you see under the cloche are all from that thrift store.

I got them all for the low, low price of $4.00, including 4 or 5 bigger ones.







I also wanted to share with you this cute little tea cup bird nest, that I bought from Becca at of Bluebirds and Roses. It arrived last week, and I think it is adorable. Check her site often for new items. It's a fun place to browse, as well as reading her blog.







Sophie, of Sophie Honeysuckle wanted to see people's beds, so here is my bed Sophie.


I wanted you to see the crown that I received from my tiara/crown swap partner Maria. Check her blog sometime. The junk drawer.



I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!



Get out those flags, and enjoy!!

Ooooh I love your bed how pretty!
I have been meaning to email about the Practical Magic Article. I apologize but the images I scanned were not saved somehow! So I have to re-scan as soon as I have a few moments I will be very happy to re scan and email those to you! I feel so guilty!!!But with all of the drama here and we have had some address and communication issues for the swap and then I have my Glitter and Grunge deadline tomorrow so I have been a little busy, I am sorry!I love holidays your decorations are so cute! Would you mind sharing Becca's website I have seen her in blogland, but never seen her work!
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

Rosemary - it's all so pretty!! Your bed is beautiful - the colors, the linens, the pillows, the canopy (so pretty!). Also, your flags are adorable and I especially love the bird bath filled with the "SUMMER" letters, the flags, and lavender. The flags under the cloche are very cute as well. And the teacup with little bird, and the crown - wow! So great! It's all inspiring Rosemary! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and wonderful treasures.

Very dreamy bed!
We have our flags out! My hubby actually did it for the first time!!! I put one each in my urns on either side of the front door...were people can see them. Also, in our area the boyscouts have a flag service!!! They will place a flag in your front yard for every appropriate flag holiday for a fee! The flags are substantial. they remove them at the proper time too. I like my medium size. I think I will follow YOUR LEAD an take a picture of them for the 4th.
When Catilin and I DROVE backhome after 9-11 the site of the HUGE FLAGS draped over birdges was overwhelming. Ever since I put my flags out.

So charming, I love how you set flags here and there. You have a beautiful bed and the same comforter as me (except not edged the same). It is all lovely. Clarice
