Labor Day Celebration and More

Hello everyone,
Heat and Smoke are the themes for this week.  We have 
had triple digit temperatures for over two weeks, and now
we are surrounded by fires.  It is so bad we can
smell the smoke in our house. But we don't have it as
bad as Texas.  I want to send prayers to everyone, who is 
suffering from the devastation of the Hurricane. 
My other prayers are for everyone traveling on this
long holiday weekend. 
At the beginning of this summer, I decorated our patio with a 
patriotic theme.  I received "God Bless America" patriotic
plaque for my birthday in June. 
Fourth of July I decorated my swing and lounge chair with
a Stars and Stripes comforter and shams. 

My granddaughter and I made two pillows from scarfs I found at
Walmart.  I taught my granddaughter how to put a zipper in the
bottom of the each pillow. I have noticed sewing for young girls
is not taught in our public schools.  The art of sewing is
an art I wish was still encouraged as an elective in
high school.  
Thanks for joining me today.

  1. Your patriotic post is delightful, Betty, do you think you could teach me how to insert a zipper too? That's something I have never been able to get right!
    I hope that the fires can be brought under control and the days get cooler and less smoky soon.
    Happy Labor Day & Mosaic Monday.

    1. Wow!!! I would be there in a heart beat. My granddaughter and I are planning a trip to France in a couple of years. She would love to study in France and I want to visit the Normandy Coast and stay at Mont St Michel.

  2. There's something about the red, white and blue that just stirs the soul and makes everything seem better. I needed this - we are also experiencing a lot of smoke in Montana right now.

  3. We're suffering from the heat, here, too, and the smoke is supposed to drift our way once again. It's been a dreadful summer for fires along the western provinces and states. Your porch decor looks very patriotic.

  4. Love your red, white and blue. the heat is horrible and smoke is, too. Stay safe!
