Have a wonderful 4th!

Pin It Now!

I have the day off work today and it's been so wonderful and it's only 9:00 am! It's so nice to have a leisurely morning instead of rushing around getting ready for work! I got up and made a pot of coffee and went out in the garden and picked some flowers for my dining room table. I hope to go to the beach tomorrow or Sunday. I'll be sure to take my camera if I do!


This weekend is also the DeAnza Flea Market (Saturday) and the Alameda Flea Market (Sunday) for those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm not planning on going but you never know...

I hope all my U.S. friends have a wonderful and safe 4th of July weekend!

Dear Miss Cindy,
Once again you have just amazed me with your endless talents. You must have this unlimited supply of energy to do it all. Your 3 posts of food were so completely amazing. That Shrimp Louie salad made my mouth water... and the cupcakes... every choc-o-holics dream! Your photos are gorgeous. Keep us posted if there are any changes coming to the bedroom.
Hugs, and have a great and safe holiday. Penny Sue

Okay... You know those magazines that take a bunch of flower stems, stuff 'em in the perfect jar, fill it the perfect height... stash a starfish nearby... and Voila! Everyone is pea green ande thinks, Hey.. I have water... and jars... and flowers.... and starfish... But we didn't think of it... YOU did... So cute... with the flags! No wonder you, my sweet friend, have 1036 followers... and over a million hits... You da bomb, girl!@

Hi Cindy...
Love those flowers! We're dealing with 70's and rain here in Pittsburgh and hoping for a little sunshine for the 4th! But, if we can't have sunshine this weekend, I'm hoping God gives us great weather next weekend when we celebrate my daughter's high school graduation and 18th birthday with a huge bash.
As always...I love visiting your blog!
Judi

My daughter, her hubs, and my son are determined to go into the city for the big FW show. I'm not that brave! lol

Wishing you and your loved ones and very joyous and very safe 4th of July!

Hi Cindy
Happy 4th of July!!

We are planning a trip out west in 3 weeks to SanFrancisco and then driving to Reno. We'll be staying in Oakland for the first few days and I'm reading about Alameda and the flea markets. Will there be any on the weekend of July 25th?

You live in a lovely spot...

Hey Cindy - I'm watching a re-run of your space/armoire used as inspiration on HGTV! It's so neat seeing you and your home on TV again.

Your flower arrangement for today is beautiful...thank you for sharing.
I hope you do make it to the beach...and the fleamarkets too! sounds like fine.

Thank you for giving me the information about the fleamarkets during the time I'll be in SanFrancisco. Too bad I'll be missing them. I have so enjoyed reading about your trips to them.
