Happy independence weekend to all my USA friends and readers. Streamers and twinkling lights in my new backyard will be setting the stage for our red, white and blue celebration. I am hoping for a bit of BBQ, a movie outside and some bright evening lights. Do you plan to watch fireworks?

PS. A few other celebratory whims for your long weekend bike parades, paper sparklers, patriotic packaging and last year’s make your own stars are the perfect project for a lazy holiday afternoon. Have a happy one friends!
