Happy 4th of July!

I love decorating for holidays in the summertime, because I can put up some red, white and blue stuff for Memorial Day, and leave it all up for Independence Day and beyond. I had a little flag on our dinner table for awhile this summer...

...but then our apparently treasonous cat decided to defile it by poking his fangs through it several times. Rather than just toss it out, I thought I would use the fabric to whip up a couple of patriotic buttons for the Fourth of July. Here they are:

Later on, we're going to meet some friends to watch the fireworks here in Beacon, which are made possible by donations from generous local businesses and residents. Wishing you and yours a happy fourth of July and a fun long weekend!


  1. Our cats have been chewing on the small flags my kids used marching in the parade! Crazy animals...

  2. Hi Dree! They *are* crazy! My cat really seems to love sticking his teeth through all kinds of fabrics, and don't even think about leaving anything with a zipper unattended around him! He'll chew on it like it's going out of style. Thanks for coming by and welcome to my blog!
