 I am so happy to be posting on my
blog again.  After our recent bout with
Covid, my husband and I are determined
to enjoy our summer and spend some 
time relaxing.

We are out on our deck today and
there is one thing I can assure you of
which is "this is one very hot" 4th
of July.

I think these blue hydrangeas will
be glad to get into some air conditioning.
They did not look very happy out in
our backyard.

The 1776-1976 Bi-Centennial teapot
is really fun because we just happened
to be living in Virginia that year and
attended the Bi-Centennial celebration
at Yorktown.

I do not believe in erasing
history just because it wasn't
wonderful  You probably know
that Martha Washington had slaves.

I found this old vintage piece of "Old
Glory" toile on ebay and hemmed it
into a table topper.

One side of our deck gets the most
sun so we pull the shade down on 
that side.

I hope You had a lovely 4th of July! 


  1. I know you’re so thankful to have this Covid behind you. What an ordeal, Bernideen. Your table topper is lovely, as is your whole table. We’ve had it so hot, too. It’s not enjoyable to be outside for long.
    God bless America! 🙏🏻🇺🇸🙏🏻

  2. Sorry to hear about the covid as you two have tried to stay free from it's grasp. As long as you recover well and can go on with daily life. I know slavery was a terrible tragedy, but it was world wide and I know the Washington's helped make this country what it is today. Sometimes I feel they would be ashamed of some conditions we now have. Thank you for the lovely photos.

  3. Sorry to hear you suffered with Covid. Hope you are now feeling well. You have a wonderful display for The 4th of July. Your flowers are beautiful as always.

  4. Glad you are recovering from covid. May you enjoy some good rest and relaxation in the coming weeks. Thank you for sharing your lovely patriotic decor in honor of our founding fathers and our country. May God bring healing to our nation. ✝️🙏
