    I can’t believe 4th of July is a week away !! Love love all your items posted for the 4th !!

    I think I will make a few of these treats for my sister next week, give her a little red, white and blue celebration while she is on her road to recovery.


    p.s. I am going to get me a few of the Leylands !! :)

    I agree, Mary. How can it be that July 4th is upon us again? All my patriotic things are packed away in storage, and I don’t have the motivation to go retrieve them. I’m settling for some red, white, and blue flowers here in the house this July. I dislike living in limbo, but that’s what it is for now. ‘-)
    Thankful that friends like you feed my patriotic longings. Thanks for this post full of American spirit!

    Who needs a magazine or cookbook for inspiration when we have you, Mary?! Thanks for all the patriotic inspiration! Love and hugs to you!!

  14. June 27, 2015 at 11:28 pm

    Mary, your Blog is better than any magazine I have ever seen for decorating tables with your food ideas. I wish I had your talent. Have a Happy 4th of July……..Stay safe on the water.
