I hope your long weekend went well and you had lots of fun. Ours was nice, if quiet. After Mr. B came home to distract me, I forgot to show you one tiny little addition the patriotic decor.
Last year I found this big basket designed to cover food on an outside table for a couple of bucks at Sand Dollar. It seemed too pretty to keep hidden away till actually in use, though, so it's hanging on the hallway wall near the living room now.
With a diameter of 18 inches, it can guard a good sized plate or bowl. Until there's a need, it provides a cheery spot of color, so win-win!
Allergies are trying to kill me, so bye for now.
