Well, I can tell summertime is here. What gave it away? 3 things really; 1) The intense need to watch the Ya’s Ya’s (as previously discussed here) and 2) The primal need to sit on my grandmothers screened-in porch and 3) My giddy excitement and anticipation for The 4th of July.
Why I love this holiday so much I am not sure, but I do. To me it is all things summer and I love it, love it.
So this weekend, in between concerts and guest, and a sick boy, I slaved over the dining room table creating 4th of July goodies for the shoppes. So far I have gotten some party crowns done and a few bottle vases. In progress are the banners and some other goodies for what I am terming “The Camp Storia Collection, summer ’07.”
Today, Mom took some photo’s of me modeling the party crowns for the online shoppe. And I have to say that all those Saturdays I have spent watching the America’s Next Top marathons have finally paid off. Jay and Tyra are right – if you feel stupid doing it, then it probably looks good!
You can check out more party crowns and silly pictures of me here.
I am enjoying catching up with your posts this morning, Jerusalem. Love the crown! Cute photo!>>Pat>Back Porch Musings
