So we decided to repaint and re-carpet our front room and hallway. On Pinterest I saw some "end of hallway" displays with pictures and other items on there, and, I knew I wanted a "You are my Sunshine" decoration. My grandpa used to sing it to me every day and I sang it to my first born all the time. So rather than pay over $30 on Etsy for one I made my own! I love it even more and it fits very nicely at the end of my hallway. I found a shaped mirror at the DI for .cents and painted it yellow and spray painted a "R" from Hobby Lobby black, as well as all my frames. It's such a nice clean look and I love, love, love it!!

Made this wreath with some leftover fabric from last years wreath. I love the colors together.
I have quite the extensive wood pile and this was from an old 2x4 we had. I think I'll make another one for my front room window. :)

Last summer I had made quite a few Patriotic wreaths
This summer I had the red and white striped material leftover but not enough of the blue star. I found some material at Joann's that worked.
Love these wreaths. The newest one I ended up selling because I have enough :)

I saw somewhere fireworks made out of wooden dowels. So I told my DH I was going to Lowe's to buy some. He pulled old closet rods out of our spare bedroom and said "just cut these up". Worked like a charm. Of course I don't recommend doing it that way if you are using the closets. :)

So my wonderfully nice neighbor brings us firewood for our firepit all summer long. The other day he brought us some 4x4 pieces. I looked at them and thought they looked way to patriotic to burn. SO...I created a cute outdoor firework display.
