It just occurred to me this morning that the 4th is just around the corner. I'm usually not that big on decorating for every single holiday, but I happened to buy a big ol' wooden flag at Saver's a few months ago for a couple dollars so I was excited to realize this morning that I could put it up. This is the before shelf: I like to take pics just to remember how I arranged things. I probably won't ever try and duplicate that again because I like change too much, but that's why it's fun for me to keep a blog and look back at my how things used to look. I put the flag up....kind of boring sitting there all by its lonesome: Even though the flag is pretty large and in charge I still decided to go with a big star. After all, the 4th is kind of an exciting holiday. It's OK to go big right?? Well the star and the big flag needed some cushioning so I added the watering can and a little star picture I made last year: That didn't look so good. Try an little rearranging: Still not quite right. It was too lopsided....OK, I can live with that. Happy Summer!!
