Baskets For The Fourth
The Fourth of July is this coming week!?! How did that happened? This summer is flying by.
Decided to decorate a graduated set of baskets to carry the goodies out to the backyard.
Might as well make them special while I am painting them.
Used Folk Art Barn Red in a slap-dash way - didn't want complete coverage.
Chose three different calico prints in red, white and blue.
Pinked a cover cloth for each.
Attached a patriotic tag with some torn ribbons from the same cloth.
Read how to make the tags here.
The large one is holding the sets of tags right now - it would be perfect for buns.
The medium one is definitely for chips.
The small one can hold the cutlery.
Of course they look fine just hanging out together outside.
Maybe they deserve plants instead of food.
Well, too lazy to decide now.
Molly approves of the baskets sitting outside - as long as they don't disturb her catnip!
We don't do much but hang around and swim on the Fourth. That is fine and dandy - just relaxing!
Be Inspired at Common Ground!
