Hooray for the Red, White & Blue!

I found this black stand at the Goodwill for 99 cents and knew it would just be perfect for holding some 
Paper Party Cones!
I filled them up with some star sprinkle cookies that my sister bought for me at...
Christmas time from Trader Joe's!

We never opened them and they were still fresh, yummy and adorable for the 4th!
 Wishing everyone a happy & healthy 4th of July!
(which happens to be my favorite holiday!)



I salute all the men and women who have fought, died,
and are still risking their lives each day
so that my family and I can live in
one nation, under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all!
Thank you!

You...expressed it so perfectly! In your ever creative way you portrayed the July 4th holiday and the reason we can celebrate it in a beautiful, colorful way. If I would have seen that black frame at Goodwill, I would have bought it first:) Thank you for sharing this post. It is so well done.

Happy July 4th to you!
