Happy Independence Day

4th of July

Happy Independence Day! As our country celebrates its independence, I wanted to share with you my Flag Day Tablecloth that can dress up my dining room table for all the summer holidays.  After I did the post with directions on how to sew this very patriotic tablecloth, a reader requested I share how the tablecloth looks in my dining room with the entire room showing.  So, here it is.

Happy Independence Day

Fourth of July We’re not actually celebrating the 4th of July in the United States today – we’re somewhere in Spain – maybe Seville but who knows – because it’s part of the camping portion of the trip.  (Yes, please cringe for my poor back!)

Independence Day Decorating

Our home exchange portion is done and we’re heading to southern Spain. We’ll be raising our Sangria glasses in honor of today and hoping to not get eaten alive by mosquitoes!

And, here’s the view from my front door.

Fourth of July

Hope you’re enjoying your day.

What are your plans for July 4th? Do you have any special decorations?

  1. Great photos! Thx so much for the post! Looooove the color of your dining room walls — do you remember what paint you used?
    Bons vacances (no Spanish)!


    1. Hi Miggie,
      It’s Behr paint color from Home Depot. It’s called “salsa” but I don’t know if it’s the same color any longer. We painted it 16 years ago! Home Depot may be able to look up the paint code for you.
