GOD BLESS AMERICA!


God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.

Beautiful words in one of America's favorite Patriotic songs.
I hope everyone enjoys a beautiful Independence day as we remember the many men and women who serve to keep America Free.

We thank you for the sacrifices you make everyday so that we may enjoy a weekend of BBQ's and fun. God's Blessings be upon you and your families.

Enjoy the music of God Bless America as I share a few pics of the season from around our cottage home.

Welcome Friends!

To welcome you, I have added to my urn of geraniums, this darling Grandma Mabel's Critters plaque sign ,gifted to me by my dear friend Julie Marie of Idyllhours. I love this so much and the meaning behind each design. Thank you Julie, I love it and you! The sentiment around the design is written on the back. Wonderful person Grandma Mabel was!



Let's walk outside while we have a little break in the rains. We finally are getting some much needed rain, moved up our way from the hurricane in the gulf. We sure need it.
First we are greeted by my Uncle Sam. I created him a very long time ago, nearly 25 years now. He is ready to greet you in his stern and patriotic look! He stands over 4 foot tall and waves his flag with a big heart for the Land that he Loves!



Recently I added a trelllis to the large pot I have on our patio to help my Potato Vine along. I think the vine loves it.

A little red, white, and blue among my flowers.


Let's go inside to make some lemonade or cup of tea with cupcakes and strawberries.




Thank you for stopping by today. I love having you here and sharing in the Indepdence of our nation. We may be able to BBQ later if the rain gives us a break. Whatever your plans, I wish for you a safe, happy and special 4th of July weekend.
Till next time, Blessings to you all!
Celestina Marie

It is supposed to be hot hot tomorrow. We are going to my sister's for a BBQ. Hopefully, getting out and about will help my dear guy feel a little better.
What can I say about your homey touches? You are gifted even to the point of adding flags to your flowers.(BTW, I have one little flag in a whiskey barrel out front!)
Have a relaxing Fourth!
