Independence Day Decorating
Fourth of July will be here before you know it and it's time to figure out how you'll
decorate for it. These are some of my favorite ideas I've pinned.
That one above is just classic....hydrangeas, white furniture and an old flag.
It can't get any better than that.
This one - equally as great.
A red wagon, red and white sacks stuffed with blue hydrangeas.
Super simple and super pretty.
Get out the blue and white china and hang a banner.
Red, white and blue flowers fill a window box dressed with bunting.
Cute pillows. They are the flag and then they aren't but they ARE patriotic!
How about a red, white and blue margarita?
I think this sounds like the perfect drink for the day.
Don't feel like making anything?
Pier 1 has some awfully cute Fourth of July decorations this year...here are just a few.
Giant firecrackers. The biggest one stands three feet tall.
Here's a table all dressed up in Pier 1 Fourth of July stuff.
There is also a clump of tabletop firecrackers....
And a table top rocket!
All of this perfect for setting a bang up picnic for the 4th.
In dog news....
The other night all the dogs ran out of the house.
It was about midnight and Franklin immediately grabbed something round and furry in the yard and started shaking it.
At first I thought it was one of Sally's stuffed toys.
She's been leaving them lying around everywhere including outside.
But I went over to see what it was and discovered it was a baby possum.
I yelled, "Drop it!" and he did.
I picked Franklin up and told all the other dogs to go in the house, which they did.
They only did this because they didn't realize there was a possum and I don't think
Franklin really knew what he had.
He was not anxious to get back to it.
So I put them in the house and went to check the possum.
There was no blood...but he was lying very still with his eyes open and mouth open panting.
He was wet around the middle but I didn't see blood.
I decided to go water my flower beds out front and come back later to deal with it.
After about 30 minutes of watering I went back to the spot where the possum had been
and he was no longer there.
I'm hoping he was just stunned and after I left, got up and went back to wherever he lives.
The dogs came out and sniffed all around but couldn't find him.
I was just thankful I didn't have to deal with a dead possum.
