Ready for Rose!

Got the porch decorated for Flag Day and Fourth of July.

And the table of course! Antique American flags!

We got married 21 years ago on Flag Day – here’s the quilt called Wedding Day which I hang outside my door every year. It’s getting faded and worn – just like me. Ha!

Now I’m as ready as I can be for Rose’s visit – still much more could be done but I’m heading to the porch to rest before she gets here. This chair is calling my name!

    Rick and Mary, Congratulations on your anniversary on June 14th! A perfect day to celebrate with red, white and blue and an anniversary too!! Our anniversary is also on the 14th, 50 years!! I thought that was only for old people, ha!

    I miss your quilt shop, but totally understand why you closed. I love to read all of your emails, they make me smile and laugh, and wonder how on earth you get so much done each day, you make me very tired, i am 67 and you spin circles around me!

    Celebrate this week!! hope Rick is improving everyday!

      I love all your holiday decorations, especially the quilt on the couch. Is that in any of your books? I have several and will look.
      Also really enjoy the wedding quilt!

    Your home seems so welcoming! It must be a treat for anyone who visits you. I looooove that Circling Swallows quilt on the table. That block has always mesmerized me.

    Love your decor, thanks for sharing. Your porch looks like the perfect place to relax with a book, some hand sewing, or just snoozing. You reminded me I have a kit in the basement I wanted to sew for the fourth. Guess I’ll have to get down there and find it!

    I remember the day you got married! I just love red, white and blue.

    Love the porch and decorations. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere so have a beer!! Is the Uncle Sam on the bike from one of your books? He is very cute. I get the ads when I read the blog on my computer, but not my iPad. That’s odd, but I do click on them😃

    Your patriotic decorations are delightful, especially the guy on the bicycle. Having been born and raised in the original 13 states, the patriotic theme traces my roots to the 1620s in the USA. Love it!
    Hope you enjoyed that beer and maybe working in another!

    I meant June 14th. My first niece was born on June 14 but she passed in 1999 at only 42 years.

    Very sweet Mary all your patriotic decorations and Happy Anniversary early. I’m working on a small flag wall hanging I want up by June 15….better get busy.

    Something about decorating with red white and blue that seems so happy this time of year. I think it’s great some people decorate their homes entirely year round with Americana look. To celebrate an anniversary on Flag Day brings even happier thoughts! Enjoy your visit and thanks for sharing your porch for all of us to relax with.

    I went to the home page and there was nothing there but faded out blog entries. I haven’t seen any ads. Love your patriotic decorations.

    You certainly deserve a cup of tea and a good book and a nice rest in that chair. It looks festive and so inviting. Enjoy your friends

    Looks fabulous!!! You have such a knack for putting things together…..

    Mary, my parents anniversary is June 14th as well. This year would have been 71 years. 😊 that you guys share the same day just seems “right” .
    Happy anniversary!! 💖

      Jan – wow, it would have been 50 years on the year we got married! Flag Day is a great day to get married! Thanks!

    I love your porch and that you decorate it for flag day/your anniversary and 4th of july. Its very inviting. One observation I have is that I don’t see your ad’s until I click on “comment”. I’m not sure if others have this experience too. I will pay more attention the next time you send a post. Of course I click on the ad’s. 😉

      Janet – I’ve heard you have to go to our homepage and not just the email.

    “Faded and worn…just like me”…that would
    sum me up just fine…❤️

    Looks great as usual. And feels even better having it all done for the summer!

    Happy Anniversary! Love your flag decor – I love red, white and blue! That chair looks so inviting, don’t blame you for wanting to take a break! Maybe a little nap? That would be nice.
