Southern Red, White and Blue

Submitted by Christi

I found this bird cage a few years ago. I used crackle base coat and finished it in red, white and blue.


This will hold a candle in the tablescape I will show on Thursday. Love the red, white and blue! It worked out really well that this little bird cage already had stars on the roof.

It was really, really hot for the Red, White and Blue Festival here last week but it was really fun. How about a preview of some of the fireworks?


Hope you are all having a great Independence Day week!!

    Adorable birdcage — I am looking forward to the tablescape!
    That salad looks great — I have put many fruits in salads, but not blueberries. I love them, and I love bleu cheese. This recipe’s a keeper!
