three cheers for the red white and blue!


the help
good morning from frannie, figgy and I!  I finally got my patriotic decorations all out.  I dont have a lot, only about 3/4's of a bin full.  but its just enough so that is isnt stressful to get it all out.  Cause dragging bin after bin of decorations out is pretty overwhelming.  Really its, Christmas, Easter and Halloween that are like that.  I refuse to get out of control with the rest of them!  LOL!
she cheese! 
But I have to use so much self control!  heehee!  My goal is not to buy .. but to make til my hearts content!  Then Im only buying supplies...   and we all know that is just necessary!
 fireworks bouquet 
Can you see those tinsel sticks with the beads on them?  I just love those.  I have to admit that I had to order them from Traditions.  I need another box!  lol!
  patriotic tree 
If got to get my ornies done for the ornament swap, since they are supposed to go in the mail this week. I'll probably work on them tonight.  I need a bigger tree!  I have the cutest little tree at work too.   If I think of it I'll take a pic today while I'm there.
 tree 
 Most of the ornaments on this tree came from swaps.  such fun!! Dontcha love this little tree topper?  I wish I could remember who made her....  shes one of my faves!

I need to make a list of projects, supplies and food for this weekend at my aunts cottage.  There are only 3 of us going,  we are going to really miss Kelly this year.  but Im going to make her something while we're there.  Its going to be beautiful out on saturday.. perfect for hanging at the lake. Im excited!
 I can do tricks! 
So, with that, I shall be off to get my lunch packed and to get ready for work.   gosh.. I was supposed to be a rich princess and shouldnt have to freaken work! darn it!  lol.
I gotta start playing the lottery......
happy day to my bloggypies!

HAHAHAHA! Your comment about needing a bigger tree reminded me of Jaws, "We're gonna need a bigger boat".

You sure are!

You're so much fun. I know I'm too old, but wanna adopt me?!

My 4th of July decorations are out and are 2 bins worth. Easy to get sucked into holiday decorations big time... Do love mine tho. Love the tree!

Love all your red white and blue and your adorable puss puss faces, Viv!

whisper whisper Traditions is nearby, well about 30-45 minutes, or worse with L.A. traffic - HEAVENLY!

I posted about my ornament for my swap partner today. Thanks so much for hosting this swap, I had a lot of fun!

Happy red white and blue to you!

Patti said...

I just love your festive tree and all the decorations you have! Soooo cute! Pretty kitties, too. What kind of cats are they?

Theresa said...

My favorite colors:) Loved visiting with you and the kitties this morning! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

Your kitties are soo cute! :) Love your decorations and your tree looks fabulous!! :) That's an inspiration! :) I've been wanting to decorate my buffet so thanks for some sweet ideas! :) xo Holly

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Fun! Well that looks like more than 3/4 of a bin to me! I hardly have anything!

Love your sweet kitties! ♥

bojojoti said...

Trophy was such a good kitty--or maybe just too old to care!--that if I didn't put ribbons out, he didn't bother anything. But most of my cats wouldn't have been able to resist so many of your pretties! How do you have all your decorations out and Frannie and Figgy don't drag them all over the house?

Sandy C said...

Wish I didn't have that wedding this weekend- and joined y'all instead. I sure could use the inspiration! Have lots of fun for me!
