It just a little collection of things, pull together last night in celebration of the 4th of July.
I wanted something festive on the porch; the door to be precise. But it’s metal and I was challenged to over come that short coming. I had found an old shovel at the Restore and a folding ruler in red and white which caused inspiration.
With a cleaning and a coat of poly the shovel made a great magnetic chalk board. The addition of a drapery rod hook in the shaft of the handle behind the shovel head made hanging it easy.
The pinwheel takes me back to Independence Day celebrations from my childhood so I couldn’t pass it up when I saw it at the cash register a few days ago. The blue bandana was found to hold it all together since all the ribbon stores were closed by this time and upholstery webbing was too stiff.
I went out to get the paper this morning and saw it on my way back into the house. It made me smile.
Hope you have a wonderful Independence Day.
