In the U.S. today is known as Independence Day. To many it means camping and picnics, shopping and relaxing. For me I’ve always love Independence Day….
My taught us to be proud of living in a nation that fought for a right to govern themselves. She often talked about the signing of the Declaration of Independence as she had a relative that signed the document…it’s seven or so greats ago and it’s a uncle but hey…we have him in our family tree. Samuel Huntington. When I see pictures like the one below I always wonder if one of the guys is him.
Here’s a little blurb about him from Wikipedia. He was from Connecticut and served as governor.
We did take some time and enjoyed the weekend. Some kids have been home. We’ve gone antiquing. We’ve worked outside and shopped…oh we visited our son Buck too. I’ll tell you all about that in the upcoming week.
For now I’m going to give you a sneak peak at what I’m working on…not sewing as little of that has happened this last week. I went shopping with Kalissa on Saturday and I finally caved to the pressure and bought…
things to make a fairy garden.
I’ve admired them for several years. I’ve wanted to make one. Then Kalissa and I bought decided to jump in on the fun.
We worked for a bit planting but didn’t get them together yet. She works a lot this week but I’m hoping one night after work she can come over and we’ll finish planting. In the meantime, I’m making a few accessories. I can’t wait to show you.
Does anyone else have a fairy garden??
