As we move into the 241st 4th Of July in 2016.
And keeping in mind all that is going on in the USA this year with the political craziness, the unrest that we feel we can still be proud to live in America and to celebrate. That our US Congress declared the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer was a part of the British Empire. Independance Day was declared on on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress.
And as in any year, there will be parades, parties, family events, BBQ’s and FIreworks, so lets not forget the reason we have and celebrate the 4th of July each year.
I wish you all a safe and fun 4th of July Celebration!!
All decked out in Red White and Blue for the 4th of July. I created these utensil holders for the celebration. Vegetable cans used with
red white and blue acrylic paints, then I applied hand cut stars on the blue can and sealed with decoupage. To finish I added string and some charms.
These could also be used for flowers as well in a centerpiece as well.
Next Week I will be sharing my fairy house I have been working on and some new jewelry!!
And now a Special Feature of some great crafts and desserts celebrating the 4th of July.
Also Featured on the 27th Week Of #OMHGWW This Week
Today we celebrate freedom
thanks to those who came before.
Those brave men who fought and died
in each and every war.
Freedom always comes at a price,
And while we celebrate
We should tip our hats to the heroes
who made our country great.
