Happy HOT 4th of July!

The outdoors feels as hot as a firecracker!!!  We're not used to this heat in Michigan.  It's suppose to reach 100 degrees today.  Yikes.


 However, you spend your 4th of July, I hope you have a festive and fun day! 
I had to squeeze in one more patriotic craft.
Thanks for the hat inspiration, Elizabeth!



 Stay cool.


  Be safe!  Happy HOT 4th of July!

Kim I love your new header. That is darling. I hope your heat goes away soon. It is hard for us to look at the weather as it says 100 on every day all the way through....Just yuck. Everything looks festive and fun. Smiles...Renee

I love the repurposed dolls! I bought a couple from Magpie Ethel after seeing yours and hers...so cute! Hope things cool down a bit...we're used to a little heat, but the rest of the country that isn't is sure hit hard. Since you're one of the "coolest" people on the blogs...you'll help us think cool thoughts. =D

It looks like you are ready for the 4th. We are gearing up here too! Hope you have a great week!

I love your 4th of July decorations and blog banner! Your home looks so welcoming, and that sailor suit (squeal!).

PS Those aprons on the bottles are so cute. My sister wants me to make something like that for an apron themed bridal shower.

Hi Kim-It looks like you had a great vacation. I can't believe how many 4th of July decorations you have and I love the photo of the vintage coke bottle aprons you mentioned before. The little side pockets with the flags are adorable. Happy 4th!

Your front porch looks gorgeous. Love the long hanging banners. Try to stay cool, which basically means to stay inside.

July 4th in Texas is always hot, but not for you. The weather is out of control all over. Trust you find a way to stay cool.

Staying cool might not be so easy to do, seeing as how most of the country is sizzling!
