~Happy Birthday America!~

I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July celebration! We’ll be heading to Washington, DC for the weekend to spend time with friends and celebrate the birth of our nation.

This is an image I compiled a few years ago to send out as 4th of July cards. The actual image was taken at a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Washington, DC. I turned the image into a painting of sorts and then overlayed the lyrics of the Star Spangled Banner.

Even though we won’t be home I decorated the front of our home. The little window banners came from the Dollar Store. Pretty impressed with the quality of the banners, they are made of material. The door decoration I picked up at Ross.

Here’s a closer look at the banner on the door. Now I have to tell you that Mr. Wonderful asked me why there were only 28 stars on the banner. He counted them as he drove into the driveway! My jaw dropped (who really counts these things) and I muttered something about I got it at a discount rate.

 Enjoy the holiday!!! Be safe!! Thanks for visiting my little blog! See my links and go check out “The CSI Project.”  (Please excuse the layout of these last two post. Something is wrong with the text layout when I go to publish….grrr…)
