Our 4th !

Hello everyone! What a great weekend we had and by catching up with all your blogs I see you had a great weekend too. We always spend our 4th on the river which is right down the hill from us, here is our boat Mr. K is getting it ready to take it to the dock.

Our friends following us and you can see all the boats in the background getting ready to line up to see the fireworks.

Here you can see the boats tying on to each other, it’s really beautiful at night with all the lights and the fireworks going off!

  I did manage to get a picture of this home, it’s alot bluer than what the camera took…see the drapes at the bottom right hand corner of the house? Love it! As always it was a great time with family and friends, food was great too!

 Remember this GW find from my last post? Well, I found sometime to paint it…

and this is how it turned out, I can’t wait to find some more frames to do this to.

 This clock I found last year at a yard sale for $5.00 and it was painted a blue country color. I painted it white and rubbed some stain on it, I don’t know if I’m crazy about it but for now it will do. I think it would look so much better with the cabinets painted white.LOL

That’s about all tonight ladies, I was swimming today at my daughter’s…it was so hot and now I’m off to bed! Have a wonderful night where ever you are♥

I'm glad you had a great time on the water. Looks like a lot of fun!

I love the frame makeover! I have been collecting frames of all kinds this summer from garage sale to paint up white or some other "cool" color for a colage type arrangement. It's on the "to do" list.

I need to check out your blog list, too. There are a few blogs there I haven't seen before. :) Did you find any new ones you liked from my blogroll? How fun to change styles "together". :)

I am a tad bit jealous of your boat party! We are lucky to have a pool so I should be happy with that but a boat on the lake/river is great fun, too!

Your projects are looking good! Isn't it amazing how paint can make such a transformation??!!

Thank for linking up to my surprise party! Have a great week!

Thank you so much for your kind comments and becoming a Follower!

It sounds like you had a great weekend. If you can't cool down on the water, there's no where to cool down!

What a perfect way to spend the 4th. It's so relaxing to be out on the water-I really need to find myself a friend with a boat. LOL!

I love the way your frame turned out. White paint always is a good solution.
