God Bless America





Here is some of my Independence Day decor. I love this picture of my grandfather in his Navy uniform, I think he is so handsome. I always put out Ole Uncle Sam to greet this visitors. My husband purchased him for me several years ago from a local aritst. I thank God everyday for the past, present and future servicemen and women who keep us free. I am so proud to be an American. Have a happy and safe holiday, Paula

Great Post! Love the vintage flags with the picture! Your blog is wonderful! Love the L in your bathroom, may have to "borrow" that idea! And I love tassels too! Like shoes, you can never have too many! I have one on Susie's and the Nester's too! Both are just beautiful!

Happy 4th! ~Rhonda

Hey Miss Paula. Hope you had a great fourth. We stayed kinda quiet for that weekend. It was kinda nice though... So many people have asked about the How to on tassel making. It's not that its hard its just hard to explain. What I mean by that is every tassel is put together different. It depends on what you are working with. It's just putting layer on top of layer of ribbon and fluff stuff. Stick a ribbon from the top and you got yourself a tassel. Im sure if you gave it a try you could do it! Susie H~
