4th of July Wreath & Newborn Kittens

I've been working on 4th of July hair bows, which has resulted in red, white & blue ribbon scraps all over the place, so I decided to gather some up and make a quick, simple 4th of July wreath.

I had this wreath below leftover from Spring....

I took out all the "Springy" stuff (leaving just the greenery on it) and got some of this red mesh that had been stuffed in the closet since I took it off the Valentine's Day Tree....

Then we wrapped the red mesh around the wreath, securing it in a couple place with wire,
then I stuffed in a few red flowers.

Last, I topped it off with a simple red, white & blue bow and a little $1 flag from the dollar store.

When I hung it on the door, Felicity exclaimed, "Oh Momma, that's beautiful.... I'm sooooo proud of you!"

As I said, we've also been working on 4th of July hair bows, lots and lots of bows.....

But our biggest news around the house this week is this.....

Our Momma cat went into labor last night, it is her first litter, and she really didn't know what to do.  She actually tried to give birth in my lap!  Finally I managed to get her off my lap and she ended up having them in our bedroom, just right out in the open, which of course, is unusual for cats.

We have 3 bob tails and 2 with tails - Felicity is in love with all of them.  

All of the cats except one already have homes waiting for them when they are weaned..... I don't know what Felicity will do when she realizes they are leaving.  We might let her keep one to make giving the others up easier.

I just got this photo of Felicity and I uploaded and edited, it was taken last month and I love it because with me being the one taking the photos, there's rarely ever a decent photo of the two of us together.

Last, here's a picture of a sweet little girl modeling one of our vintage headband styles!


I'm linking up at some great blog parties,  Click the "blog parties" tab at the top to see where they all are, including Metamorphosis Monday

Magnolia Festival

So good to get back to my blog!  I wasn't away by choice, just extremely overwhelmed and busy and had no extra time whatsoever.  But now orders are caught up and things are starting to get back into a manageable groove... yay!

We are growing a garden this year for the first time and I will share pictures soon, as well as pics of Felicity's birthday party and I have all kinds of projects on deck to do and share soon too, so check back regularly.

Last weekend I was a vendor at the Magnolia Festival in Durant, OK.

If you come by my house while I'm gone to a show you'll find there are no curtains hanging in the windows, no living room rug, now dinning room birdcage or table clothes, no shelves in Felicity's room and no drawers in the desk!
I just decided today to paint the wood inside this frame with chalkboard paint, then I can write the price of each bow in chalk directly above it at the next show.

The display above was a last minute put together thing.  I bought a plain wooden used frame from someone the day before the show and Felicity and I painted it and made this clip display with it.

My new flower clip display, sticks in a plant holder!

I'm also having a "Share it to Win it" giveaway on my facebook page right now for 4th of July stuff!
