Red, White & Blue

We are in the midst of a heat wave
to rival all heat waves!
I'm not sure how to handle it,
we aren't used to it around here. 
Below freezing, we can handle, 
98 degrees, not so much. 


I've come to the conclusion that I enjoy 
decorating for the 4th of July.   

I've also come to the conclusion that I enjoy it 
because I really like the colors of red, white & blue.  
There's something about them...

So do you like to decorate for the 4th?

Wishing you a fun & safe holiday!


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. I don't do much decorating for the fourth, but yours are soooo cute! I'm stopping by from Leslie's blog:)

  2. Hey, I know the gal above! :)

    Love your decorations! The bottle brush trees work great too.
    Didn't get much done on that front this year but I do like to
    decorate for the holiday.

    Happy 4th!

    M : )

  3. I normally enjoy decorating for the 4th, but not so much this year. I do love the colors, too.

    We are already into triple digits, but our humidity is in the single digits....dry heat is a lot easier to take than the extreme hot humidity. Be careful!

  4. Yep I decorate for the 4th (but you already know that) ! I agree there is something about the colors I love too. We’ve been having the heat wave too and I’m ever so grateful we installed central air a while back. Not much a person can do outdoors with a heat index of 103º! Stay comfy and enjoy the 4th!

  5. Yes, I love it too! I love your red and blue accents against a white background. It really makes the colors pop and looks so festive! ♥ We are having a heat wave here in MA too! It's been over 90 for days with no end in sight. Thank goodness for a/c! ♥ Have a happy 4th, Gina!

  6. I love red white and blue also!! You always put things together so beautifully! Happy 4th to you!!

  7. You always share the prettiest arrangements, Gina! I've taken my red, white and blue down already.

  8. Hiya, Gina!

    You always decorate in the cutest way!
    I love your style and cozy home.
    Gee, I love red, white and blue too!
    I hang out my patriotic buntings the first of May, and leave them up to enjoy throughout the summer. I figure patriotic colors are great for Memorial Day, Father's Day, the 4th of July,& Pioneer Day ( Utah's celebration of Statehood day) on the 24th of July.
    Then, all things patriotic get put away, until the next summer :)

    Oh, the heat! It has been a hot, hot, hot summer. Lots and lots of wildfires out here in the west. Looking forward to Autumn and cooler temperatures, and praying for rain.

    Have a happy day.


  9. Hi Gina, just stopping by to say hello. I always enjoy seeing your mantel all decorated. Looking forward to seeing what you do for Fall.
