It is hard to believe that it is almost July! We have been much occupied here at Honey Hill Farm. One of the summer festivities we enjoy immensely is celebrating the Fourth of July!
Normally, we would have a large gathering of family and friends out here on the farm. We would have a BBQ, lots of fun games for the children (complete with prizes), face painting, volleyball, soccer, swimming and fishing in the pond. I usually give a guided tour of our dear old Victorian home. Later, it would be time to watch the fireworks. From our hill we can see 5 different cities shoot off their beautiful fireworks....oooohhh......ahhhhh!
This year will be a little different though, as most of our family will be attending a wedding back east. So, it will be a very quiet gathering of folks, oooohhhhing and ahhhhing together!
No matter, I will still put up my decorations both inside and out!
This simple wreath (I use over and over) is adorned with an old bunting woven through some seasonal flowers. It ties in nicely with all the colors of the flowers that are blooming in our yard, but is boldly patriotic!
A small frame (from the discount store) sits in the middle with a glittering vintage postcard (from clipart) proudly proclaiming a Happy 4th! This is easy to do and you can re-use the frame for other holidays!
Tomorrow I will bring you a few photographs of my entryway, brimming with patriotic pride.
