Patriotic Sock Yarn and Red, White and Blue Party Items

My friend Joanne sent me red, white and blue birthday party napkins, cupcake papers, glow bracelets, tiny fairie lights, and some fun hand-dyed sock yarn– labeled You’re a Grand Old Flag. Self striping.   You know how I’ve been into sock knitting this year. 

My being born (is that proper English?)on the Fourth of July inspires her selections. You might remember the cupcake tree she sent one year?  That post has the 1-2-3-4 Cake Recipe .

How about those Red white and blue chocolate covered Sunflower seeds? Where do you find this stuff? 

I’m back in Ohio and the kids are coming over to celebrate Monday. We will put the items to good use.

Thanks J. It’s going to be a happy birthday party. Can’t wait to knit the socks. And wear them! 

A Day to Remember

A neighbor’s display in his yard.  Each flag has a metal marker of a different war.  Too many wars.
