**~ Why I love The 4th of July! **











"I am certain that, however great
the hardship and trials
that loom ahead,
Our America will endure
and the cause of human freedom
will triumph."

Cordell Hull
US Secretary of State 1933-44, 1945 Nobel Peace Prize


Happy July 4th Friends!


Top three vintage photos taken this week at Leolas. Child's shirt and flag tie
from my kitchen counter, and last 3 illustrations from my personal collection
of vintage images.

Did you go back and buy that shirt?? I KNOW that ribbon wasn't on it when we were there. I love it!

I was just dropping in to wish you and Mark the happiest Independence Day. May your day be full! May you enjoy laughter shared with family, great food shared with friends, fireworks to make you gasp, a lump in your throat at the anthem, and a full and grateful heart at all we have been given. Happy Fourth of July, my friend!
