Happy

Fourth of July




. . . . . . O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

We dare not forget that we are the heirs of that first revolution.

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.
I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
~Abraham Lincoln

For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?

May I never wake up from the American dream.

Freedom

is the greatest blessing our country has to offer.

With deep humility, I thank all who have contributed it.


Happy Fourth of July

I love red, white and blue bunting.

Well, I actually love anything red, white and blue,

but I wanted to do something special this July Fourth

so I enlisted the help of my sewing machine and Walmart's $1/yard fabrics.

God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home sweet home.

-- Irving Berlin

I love the bunting! I'd love to know how you made it and hung it. I got choked up reading this post--being out of the U.S. on the 4th of July just made me feel extra proud of being an American--great post!!

I love this post...so inspiring. I am jealous that your Walmart still carries fabric. I LOVE what you did for the outside of the house. I love the 4th of Juy too!
