broad stripes...bright stars...that's the spirit!

good morning, long holiday weekend!

it's the perfect day to wrap onerself in bright stars after a morning sugar scrub!

are you setting the table for a family picnic in the sun?

you might be "dolling up"  for a late springtime performance
of Coppelia! (love the nude shoes)


lately, i'm digging Sperry! have you visited their site lately?

    today, i will be wearing my blue jeans, and pinning the stars and stripes to
 my SWEET market bag. Mr D and i will be hitting the local farmers market(s)
and picking up the easel for the flat screen.  we're also going to this kookie
furniture store called The Cannery. they feature some v e r y   i n t e r e s t i n g  items.

most times, i cannot find anything that appeals to me, but last year i was quite taken this
piece! perfect rustic French bread.(something totally unexpected for The Cannery.)
we did not buy it, but it was fun to photograph.
they have free hot dogs and soda today! i will go expecting the unexpected!

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formally known as Decoration Day and commemorates all men and women, who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season.

i wear this holiday's colors with spirit, with pride, 
with gratitude, and...


  1. Amen-We are so blessed to live in the freedom this country provides- that has been paid for by all our service people.

    Have fun at The Cannery. Maybe you will buy a CAN? xo Diana

  2. Absolutely! Thanks for sharing some red, white & blue eye candy.

    Have a super Memorial Day Weekend, Lynne.

  3. I was thinking it might be fun to roll you around on that settee. :)

  4. You'll be just a couple minutes away from my house!! My mom shops there all the time. I've been long overdue to go there myself. That settee looks fun, and hope you have a blast!!

  5. Love those blue/white shoes :):) Enjoy your holiday. Smiles to you, Susie
