Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Patriotic Door Decor

Easy to make for your door or any other place that needs a little red, white, and blue.

Cut and fan fold scrapbook paper, glue center, add a little something in the middle, and something to hang it with. A cute idea that I copied from here, since I haven't had an original idea since 1986. If you click on the link there's a video on other great ideas for these easy patriotic decorations. Don't you just love the 4th of July?

I like yours better Sue! I wish I had a protected doorway to do these kinds of things...I guess I could make one for the inside of the front door..hmmmmm.
(your idea was original...you were just inspired someplace else :D)

Happy 4th
