Happy 4th of July!!!!

My Patriotic Table at the Little French Flea Market

I can't believe that its the 4th of July already!!! It's one of my favorite days... 
When I lived in Pennsylvania and New Jersey I found a new favorite holiday!! Growing up
here in California we had celebrations... sparklers, homemade ice cream (peach my favorite) and watching 
the fireworks off the end of the pier was great.... BUT then I experienced celebrating our country's independence back east and it was amazing!!! The fireworks were amazing the barbeque's the parades just everything was sooo wonderful...Everyone always decorated their front porches and a flag flying... Celebrating the 4th of July always bring back those wonderful memories...

The past few months have been very life changing for me, with my dad he passing away on May 16th. He had lived with me for the past six years... I miss him like crazy!!! When I painted out back he would sit with me helping me prime or sanding:) He gave me great ideas and was my biggest cheerleader.. The Little French Flea Market was my first market since my Lenny passed away and it very different coming home and he wasn't there to greet me and say "well how did you do babe?" It was a bit empty... He gave me that great love of finding a treasure he was always on the look out for me... So with that I will continue to pick:) and I know my Lenny is still cheering me on!!!

As always thanks so much for stopping by and giving me a few minutes of your time!!!!
