Here are some of my 4th of July decorations I've put up around the house for the holiday. I think I promised to show these about two weeks ago, but I was a bad girl and have neglected to so until now. Given that the holiday is tomorrow, it's now or never!
Apologies beforehand for the poor quality of most of these pictures. Most were taken when the sun was shining too brightly in through the windows.
This banner of little flags hangs from a book shelf over our kitchen table. (Looks as though somebody had better climb up to straighten those books. Fast. And dust while you're at it, too, please.)
A red, white and blue wall hanging is between our two big kitchen windows.
I made this runner several years ago and always meant to make two more for the kitchen.
It goes on this storage unit which is a shelf below my little kitchen TV.
One of the new runners I made this year turned out a little . . . well, garish if you ask me. I think I got carried away with the design and find I'm not particularly fond of it. I guess that happens sometimes when you just let the creative juices flow unchecked.
I put it on top of the storage unit that holds the telephone. (Yep, we still have a land line.) Looks as though the runner could use some heavy pressing with the steam iron.
This second one came out much plainer because I was still suffering from the visual overload of the other one.
It's on a shelf unit next to the back door. The basket holds library books to be returned.
Mr. Bear wishes all of you a very festive, enjoyable 4th of July spent in your favorite way!
a few good things
