We do it up for Our Red,White and Blue!!Free 4th of July Printable!

Wow Y'all... the temps here in Iowa have been 85 to over 90 for days and we almost hit 100 Today! To make matters worst there been no perception in a weeks.We have a saying around here " knee-high by the 4th of July " that's where we hope the corn is and most years it's much much higher then that by now, but it's not looking very promising this year.

 We are really looking forward to celebrating the 4th of July rain or shine and around here fireworks are legal and people come from far and wide just to purchase them in our state. We will be spending the day at the Lake. There will be lots of food, swimming,boating and yes fireworks all day long! And at dusk the boats will all gather in the middle of the lake and watch a large display put on by donations from the local fireworks stands.

By the time the evening  comes to a close bellies are far passed full,little ones are falling asleep, smoke is hanging in the air, and family and friends have made more memories.
This is how I have been lucky enough to celebrate this great country of ours since I was a little girl! Please enjoy this free printable I'am sharing and may you have a safe and memorable holiday too.

                             Till next time. Smiles Cindy

Not Crazy for this Iowa Weather and a FREE Easter Printable!

Hello Friend! 

Spring in N.W. Iowa can be a roller coaster of changing weather conditions. This past week temps climbed into the upper sixties and sun,the next day came with snow flurries and cold  temps,and now to around out the week rain and wind. Now this is no shocker to me because I grew up here but enough all ready.

The tease of that almost 70 degree day got me yearning to decorate the Haven with some spring cheer, So I marched down to the basement and before I knew it I was knee-deep in totes and decor.  

 I just adorn the pastels colors that come with Spring and Easter....oh and the blooming flowers,eggs,ribbon,greenery, wreaths of dogwood,birds nest and moss bunnies.All of it truly makes my heart happy.

So I hauled the totes I needed up the stairs and processed to springify my home.

I'll be sharing in a future post my little vignettes,but for now here's a cute Easter printable 
I put together for you.So enjoy and have a blessed day.Cindy

FARMHOUSE Decor at Dollar General WHAT??

Yepper Friends, Can you even believe it! I was making a mad dash through my local store recently and as I came down to the end of an aisle there it was.. Farmhouse Decor.As you can see they have several items to choose from.I had to have the little tin buckets of course.And I think I'll go back soon and get the porcelain pig,cow and rooster which were labeled as card holders and priced at only a $1.00!I was thinking maybe I would add the black and white photo I have of my Aunt and Uncle's farm, a vintage post card would look nice too.I always looking for ways to display photos and such so card holder no more.

Sorry I was on a really tight schedule that day,so I wasn't able to get any pic's of the cute tin calendar they had and
the fluorescent lighting made it difficult to get good pictures too. 

So if you happen to have a Dollar General in your area and you really really are  into Farmhouse Decor like me, pop on in and take a look see. Hope you find something you can't live without...

Have a Blessed Day!Cindy
