Monday Inspiration #10 - 4th of July

Welcome to some


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  It's been soooo hot here that we spent most of our time in the pool or under a shade tree.

So, let's get Inspired

This week I am sharing 

When I was a kid, we used to be able to buy the plain white canvas shoes from the dollar store for about two bucks a pair. It was how we got through the summer. They didn’t last a long time with all the running around we did, but mom just bought us a new set every few weeks, and we could wear them out with impunity. One of our favorite things to do was to decorate our new shoes in fun ways.

In my thrifting I came across a few cabinet doors, and I just had the urge to make one into a flag.  See what you think.

I designed this quilt.  There are some patterns.  The barns and houses are paper pieced.  Makes it easier and faster to make little tine triangles.

The last two weeks have made it hard share our time in the kitchen with you. We’ve had a lot of foggy and rainy days which is a great time to bake. The temperatures aren’t too hot to run the oven and it gives us something fun to do inside. Unfortunately my kitchen has been very dark and I really love featuring bright photos with natural light. Last week we had a mostly cloudy day where the sun would tease beautiful light before being covered up again. Wes had an itch to bake something so we made a game out of trying to catch the light for photos.

Many moons ago, we purchased a set of wooden firecrackers that I have been using for my 4th of July Decorating ever since. Even though the original set of Wooden Firecrackers had been repainted, it was time to give me a fresh look again.

The Dose of DIY group has put together some great Flag ideas for you this month by using reclaimed wood/fabrics/and/or metal. Creating a patriotic Flag project is something that can be used for Memorial Day, Flag Day, and the Fourth of July. (Or just to show our American pride!)

Thank you to all who share every week at Wake Up Wednesday Linky Party.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you found something that Inspired you.
See you next Monday, same time, same place for more inspiration.
