Pink Saturday - 4th of July

Happy 4th of July

May the Lord of Lords who gave us this wonderful country be praised.
I am so thankful for what our founding fathers did for us, the amazing foresight they had,
now I pray that their sacrifice and that of all who have fought for our freedom
will not be wasted.

May God give us all wisdom to do what needs to be done to
save what He gave to us.

God Bless America

In thinking about what to share today, I realized I don't have any of
the usual decoration for the 4th of July.
So I well share a few things that are Red, White, and Blue.

I decided to put a lining in this basket, I have a table at our Old Timers celebration at the end of the month and I am making soaps and other bath products to sell. They will be in rose fragrance, the rose fabric seemed a perfect fit and I do like how it turned out. You may see this again in a week or so.

What should I add to this for the 'white' about the doily Grandma made, and my magnolia candle holders. Ok, now for the blue, how about the candle holders I made,
and the bottle that was a gift from a friend. Oh and lets light the candles!

Here are a couple of close ups. I made these little votive holders using the glasses you get with the dried meat for making cream beef on toast (watch for another project with those glasses). What looks like sea glass is really from bottles broken and tumbled in the rock tumbler.

Lastly I wanted to share a collage of my eagle block.

I hope you have a wonderful, safe and blessed 4th of July.

Very pretty red and blue items for the 4th. Amazing what we can find around our place isn't it.

Happy 4th of July
