Time to celebrate our freedom and enjoy the 4th of July weekend! Hope you and yours have a simply splendid time of gathering together and enjoying this special day in our country’s history.

Are you doing anything fun? We don’t have a lot of outdoor things planned for the day (it's SO dang HOT), but we will be attending the Birmingham Tea Party again this evening. Hope to see a few of you there!

Happy 4th of July! We are blessed to have our freedom.

Light some sparklers and shoot off some fireworks!

I haven't even checked the paper yet to see if there are many yardsales this weekend, but even if I don't make it to any (and I probably will :), I'll still have the party starting Sunday evening. See you then!

Happy 4th!

All of our friends have plans or are out of town. Since we live far away from family, we are going to go pack a picnic and watch fireworks ourselves :)

Happy Independence Day....I can't think of a more perfect day to go to a TEA Party, can you? It's the LEAST I can do...I'll be tying on my apron and holding the flag!

Smokin a brisket Texas style! Have a great time at the Tea Party. We had one last night in Houston but we were just too busy preparing for the BBQ today. Love the idea of a tea party on the 4th but with so many gatherings going on today I'm a little skeptical about a good turn out.

Happy 4th of July! Enjoy the tea party. I wish I was going to one.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love that star shaped pillow Rhoda! Have a great day! I'm on my own today as hubby and son work in retail, but it's sunny and breezy. I really should get some outside work going.

Blessings,

Jenny said...

Happy 4th! How awesome that you are going to the tea party. There is one near us, but we won't make it. I'm kind of bummed.

Happy 4th, Rhoda! Enjoy your weekend!

Nancy said...

Rhoda,
We already grilled and now we're going to chill for the rest of the day. Rainy and yucky here; won't be doing anything outside. Enjoy your day!

Happy 4th of July, Rhoda! I absolutely love that star pillow, perfect for the day. I made it to 3 sales in my neighborhood, so I'll be posting on Monday--see you then. Out to the pool now!

Same to you Rhoda!

Happy Fourth to you, too, Rhoda!

I love the star pillow. Did you make it?

Bill @ Affordable Accoutrements said...

Hi, Rhoda. Hope you had a wonderful holiday! Did you manage to find any yard sales at all? I didn't find a single estate/tag sale in my area. It's tough when we have to go a whole weekend without feeding our addictions!!!

I'm kidding (mostly). The 4th is definitely one or most celebration-worthy holidays, isn't it?

Warmest regards,
Bill

Brenda said...

It was so hot here we barely went outside all day. Settled for a quiet 4th watching a Netflix movie. Lovely photos!

I hope you're enjoying the holiday weekend.

I love those pillows. I've been wanting some flag pillows to use in our sunroom during the holiday, but I haven't found any I like yet. I might see if Pottery Barn put theirs on sale yet.

Bill said...

Rhoda, I just noticed you've passed the 1000 mark! That's a LOT of followers, and you richly deserve to have every single one of US hanging on your every word and drinking in every wonderful image you share.

GO, RHODA!!!
