Red, White and Blue

I'm not sure why but I have really been into the 4th of July this year. Typically it isn't a holiday that I decorate for outside of a few flags but this year I decided to pull out some red, white and blue.

I thought I would be a little crafty and turned some toilet paper rolls into firecrackers. Cheesy.....maybe but I think they are fun.

I've had this little candle holder for a while and it's been one of the few things that I do put out each year. I decided to dress it up a little this year and added some ribbon.
I also decided to make a wreath for the front door this year. I toyed around with making a few firecrackers and adding to the wreath but decided not to, who knows I may change it up a little next year and add some.

I found these little flags in the dollar bins at Target for 3/$1.00. I love that aisle and always have to stop and check it out.

I didn't get a picture of it but I love how every year our POA purchases flags and puts one by the sidewalk in front of each persons house in the neighborhood. It's always a nice little surprise to wake up one morning and there they are. I love the very first day they put them out because they are lined up down the streets and just seem to give a sense of pride.
