Mine are the Metal Stars, Bird Frame (which somewhat does not fit, but I had it hanging up already for Spring), Mary Jane miniature shoes, red white and blue softball and baseballs painted by me way back so they are slightly faded, so bear with me. My Red stamped valentine art in the background at the bottom. Other things I just bring out of storage with Correct colors.

        Did you see my stars from pop cans on there? May be you will not know what I am talking about. (You wanted to see them last year. I had taken a picture of them last year, but my camera was messed up with my pictures and I had to fix it. By then my stuff was put away for fall decorations. Lost pictures.

        Thank you. When My kids were young we made stuff all the time. They are still all creative but in different ways but not doing home deco stuff. (Fixing engines. Humor stories, Drawing, etc.)

    Fireworks with a colorsplash Heading into Holiday 



    I had thought I would not get to my red, white and blue up this year for the 4th. I had been sick for about 6 weeks with Pertussis. I was behind on a lot that I had to do. I thought doing the redecorating was not a top priority.

    Each year I redecorate with my different holiday collections and according to season for July-August, September-October, November, December, January-February, March, April, and May-June.

    I usually just dust around my nick nacks on the edges until I pull everything down. So Saturday the looks of the dust after 3 months made me cringe.

    So I went ahead and did it. I Pulled them, dusted the display place. I put some pieces in their proper boxes and I kept out many that go with my Summer Deco theme. This time around I kept out blue , red and white objects that fit for the 4th. I then brought out my specific holiday stuff which consists of about 14 items specifically made for the day. It takes me about 4 hours, but decorating is in my blood. This is when everything finally gets dusted and suffice it to say the 3 month spread from May-June is pretty long and it gets real dusty. Not to mention the same ole, same ole pretty stuff has become stale.

    Maybe it was vanity, but We have company coming this Friday and I just could not stand the faded look of my Spring setting and the dust could be embarrassing.

    I do not have the best digital camera and my photos are not professional, but here are several photos of a few hot spots on the theme.

    Oh and I might add that I usually craft 2 or 3 new things to add out there. One day I will have to part with a few things when the collection gets to large. So some things in these photos were made or recycled this year.
