It's also the first Friday of the month, which means it's time for Fresh Cut Friday at Rose Vignettes hosted by Liz.

When I decorated for Independence Day this week, it was hard for me to believe that it's already here.  It must be because Shelley got out of school so late.  Anyway, here is our kitchen and breakfast room decor for the Fourth:

I love the tacky dyed daisies.  So much fun for the fourth!

Have a wonderful weekend!  I'll be back later with my Literary Friday post.

Everything in kitchen from Pier 1 with the following exceptions:

White plates:  Vintage
Blue and white espresso cups and carrier:  An Angel at My Table
White thistle vases:  MacKenzie-Childs

Heart and flag decor:  Vintage
Butter dish, creamer, and jam jar:  Polish pottery from Joss & Main
