Planning the 4th!

These photo's are from last year!!

I love the 4th of July. We always have a family cookout and then head downtown Nashville to Riverfront Park for the BIG Fireworks display!!Nahville has one of the BIGGEST in the US!!It is so patriotic and you get tears in your eyes when Lee Greenwood sings I'm Proud to be an American!!Howtrue and how blessed we are!! So tomorrow I will go Krogering for hotdogs, burgers, chips and cold drinks. As we say in the south!! Usually we have strawberry shortcake and watermelon but I may do something different this year!! Have not given a lot of thought yet so we will see. I will post pics later of my this years decorations!!Hope you have a fun weekend, God Bless

Trash and treasure

lunch @ corner drug store

Every year about this time in a little town in Tennessee called Cross Plains they have the Trash and Treasure sale/It is a blast and there are literally sales every where you look. Folks come from every where. Tents are pitched and goodes are loaded underneath for sale. You will find anything from Old Buckets, books and home baked goodes and jams& jellies. There will be folks selling hotdogs and snowcones. Churches handing out free ice cold water and booths of homegrown vegetables and fruits for sale. There will be cokes in large old tin wash tubs full of ice and kids riding up and down on bicycles ! Children being pulled in red wagons and old folks on cains walking. Every kind of people and then the people like me looking for that perfect primitive piece!!I actually found lots of things. Got today an early fabric blue book/ hogscaper tin candle holder/a fabulous cinnamon candle. Keepers of the light!A tall old churn/ early egg basket/ English pewter tea pot/and an old prim box!!So much fun and found a great Antiques shop based in an old barn!!Can I hear an Amen!!So have had a fab weekend thus far. Hope yours is great as well/!!

I like to change my prims!!


tHIS IS NOW!!lol




Ok I am in a decorating faux pas !! Is that how it's spelled? Who cares??? Anyway, I am ITCHING to make a serious change, like maybe moving cabinets around or something. But wait!! I can't do that anymore. I am not crazy about this getting old and not being able to achieve the things I want. I do give it a shot though. So I decided since I can no longer Move cabinets I will post pictures for your viewing pleasure so you can see how I do change my mantle and tablescapes. Etc I am sure by now you have seen them a zillion times but here's to a zillion one!!
