Baseball Bat American Flag on Glorious Fourth of July



This is a triumphant, happy day for all Americans.

This patriotic holiday, marking the independence of the United States of America, makes most residents proud to be Americans.

While at an appointment the other day, I looked up at one wall and was surprised to see this American flag, made completely out of baseball bats!

How American, for many, is that!

Truly, this day is joyous with marching bands and floats galore in parades across the nation.

The day is capped off with colorful fireworks booming away in the night sky.

Always, on this day, I stop and take a moment to remember all the soldiers, men and women, who have fought so bravely to keep this nation free. 

To them, we owe a debt of gratitude.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THIS HOLIDAY?

Flag Painted on Building




There's a hint of excitement in the air.

Everyone around here is  preparing, or at least thinking about the Fourth of July holiday tomorrow.

One of my sisters was born on the Fourth and always thought the whoopla was in her honor! Ha!  She's worthy of it, too, since she's  a pretty amazing woman.



While going to an out-of-town appointment, I saw the building shown in this post.

A huge American flag covered its entire side!

How perfect for the Fourth of July, was my main thought and, luckily, my handy little Lumix camera was in my purse.


So this Friday before the Fourth, hope you have a good day, no matter where you live!

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TODAY?

Birdhouse Makeover





Bright colors or muted plain, which is your preference?



Mine is bright colors, the brighter the better.

So a little brown birdie house is now a colorful abode!




Acrylic paints provided the pizazz.

The birdhouse joined a few others on a bench in the backyard.






I'm happy with the results.

There are a couple of little ones on the bench, too. I started out 
painting those to see how they looked in color.

There's still an identical house ready to be painted.




Why have plain when you can have a burst of color for the backyard? Fun, fun, fun.

Hope the birdies like it, too!

DO YOU FEED BIRDS?
