Good morning again bj, I just commented on your previous post. Why can't we sleep sometimes? The night before last I fell asleep on the couch and when it was time to go to bed, I was up the rest of the night. sigh. I had coffee and tea for dinner and that was a mistake. Take a nap today!!!

Your post is great as always. Love that red, white and blue. I actually found pink stuff for today. Smile.

Happy Fourth of July to you and your family dear friend. Ours will be a quiet 4th. All the company will be gone. Waaaaaa!

Love ya, Jeanne

What a wonderful share of color today. Oh my gosh those plates are so over the top gorgeous. I love the polka dots, and your red, white and blue bow is so pretty on your geranium pot. You sure do know how to set a table with flare.

Your last photo of the night sky is over the top. I LOVE it. Thank you for sharing it with me today.
