Best of the Red, White & Blue and Happy 4th!


The bands are marching, the grill is smoking, the lemonade is iced and the fireworks are popping.

It’s time for a little red, white and blue …


Cristina from Remodelelando la Casa knocked her DIY flags windows out of the park.

Love the DIY Flags using old windows!

Becky from Beyond the Picket Fence made the coolest book page flag.

Turn book pages into DIY flags!

Those blurry blobs in the sky are a thing of the past once you read Beth from Unskinny Boppy’s tips on how to photograph fireworks.

I’ll be down the shore (Jersey speak for the beach) if the weather cooperates.

The rest of the summer, you’ll find me here

drinking this and this (trust me, you want to drink them too).

Cheers to a happy boom filled 4th of July!


P.S. My girls graduated from 8th grade (sob!) last week and got to choose something special.

They went retro with each of them choosing a polaroid film like camera.  Isn’t it cute (comes in other cool colors too) – the instant polaroids bring back memories.

Cool camera - instantly prints retro style polaroid film!

  1. Kelly,
    Happy Fourth of July! Love everything you post, and your home and decor.
    I actually have an old Polaroid that I found when I was decluttering! My dad once told me, things always come back in style. I bet he’d be surprised to see how popular those types of photos are though. I wonder if you can find film for them anywhere and better yet, if it works. : ) If not, this is another great option. Thanks for all you do

  2. oh i love those cameras!!! and happy 4th, my friend! i will be painting my lips red, donning a white shirt, and topping it off with a blue belt in its honor.
