Happy Fourth of July!

Freedom will find me at the lake.  Freedom will find me watching fireworks!  Freedom will find me eating and eating and eating.... Everyone enjoy and thanks to all those who have given their service and lives for all our FREEDOMS!

Gee, this is when I wish I knew how to add music.  So please feel free to hum the stars and stripes to yourself or out loud.

Please join me out back for some snacks.

A beverage perhaps, remember my clearance star glasses (7.99 for 16), they are getting ready to get used for the first time.

A coke or  would you prefer some wine, yes wine...

Have you seen these, the guy at the store called them adult drink boxes.  Maybe Dallas is a test market, but they are just like drink boxes, without the straw.  It is about a half bottle of wine and you can chill them in a cooler during your next picnic.  I'm trying Sangria and Pinot Grigio.  I'll let you know, but I do know they will travel well.
No corkscrew needed.

I made the star plate last year, hot glued to a glass candlestick.

Whatever you find yourself doing this weekend,
 have a great Fourth of July.

Post script.  My first two comments talk about the tray.  Which I didn't even mention.  Sorry Mom for not giving you the credit. She gave my sister's each a piece of her aluminum wedding gifts.  The first comment even gave the name of the tray.  A Rodney Kent tray.  ( I checked and turned it over and sure enough, Rodney Kent!) So now I know. Thanks, Mom and thanks Melody, from Blogland for the tip on who my tray was created by.
