Happy Fourth of July!

I love three day weekends...I really do. But this year our car quit working the day before everything closed down for the Fourth, so we'll spend Thursday-Monday morning at home with no car.

I was kind of bummed at first, because I felt like I was just throwing things together for our company this afternoon. I went through my kitchen drawers and cupboards in search of red and blue serving platters and linens. After scrounging around the house this morning, I found this old blue quilt and a red gingham curtain panel for the picnic table.

I placed little American flags in a jar of beans (my husband's idea), and there you have it...we're all set for company!

Love it! I've been meaning to e-mail you...I found a vintage Strawberry Shortcake carrying case for $1 at a thrift store and would love to pass it on to you if you are interested. Could not find your e-mail address, but will send you a pic if you'd like to see it first! :)
