Getting Ready For The 4TH

Hi all!
Hope you had a great weekend.
I was busy as usual. We had a baby nursery painting marathon yesterday at my daughter's house. My son in law and I painted, my husband cut and put up chair rail, and my daughter cooked us a delicious dinner. It took the entire day, and of course it was the hottest day so far. The main thing is we got it done, and it turned out really well. If you want to see some pictures go to my side bar and click on Baby Balice Blog.
I am hosting 4TH of July at my house this Saturday, so I am starting to decorate little by little. Thought you might like to see some of the decorations so far. Have lots more to go. Lots of shopping and cooking as well.
I will post more decorations later in the week.
Have a great Monday!!
Chat again soon.

Love all the red white and blue. I haven't had time to photo all mine. So glad you got the nursery painted,Im sure it looks Great. Oh, I forgot to mention I Love the name Jake, that was going to be Emily's name if she were a boy. Love, Love... Can you believe Saturday is the 4th? Wow...Hot, Hot out here, Im actually off to Six Flags with the kids. I told them they had to wait until 4 to go up. The joys of living 5 minutes from a amusement park. How is Crown Creating? Have a wonderful week, Jamie

Gorgeous as ever, Rosemary and good for you that you got all that work done! LOVE THE FIRST CROWN...I have a larger one just like it! Happy fourth and think of me, a former Californian. I used to love the picniques that my family would have on this day; a bunch of Mexicans eating great food, watermelon with salt, dancing, drinking, laughing and carrying on. Great memories. Blessings to you, Anita

Hi: Just found your blog and I love the crowns. I recently purchased the Crowns & Triara Book. Have you seen it? It has so many. I want to try making one. Yours look so beautiful. You have given my courage. Thanks, Martha

Allison said...

Happy 4th of July! Your decorations are so cute - I especially like the little banners and the decoration on your door. I have no Independence Day decorations - I must remedy that. You however, have great ones. I hope you have a great time and enjoy your weekend.
