And the Home of the Free............
This is one of my favorite pictures of Jay.  His eyes are as blue as the Superman shirt.  So everyone has an exciting weekend coming up.  Happy 4th of July to all!

I really like this house from Coastal Living done by Interior Designer Amanda Nisbet.  I have a client who wants to do all poppy red, true blue and cream in her beach house.  Amanda's house here uses these primary colors in such a modern way.  Her use of color gets me excited to work with these strong colors and it changes my whole attitude toward red, white and blue!  Stars and stripes here I come........

"Ravishing Red", well this is not really the name but I have had such a crazy week I could barley fit in this polish change and then forgot to look at the name.  Maybe "Red Hot Mamma" would be a better name, although I am not really feeling like one right now.  I cannot wait for this weekend, I really need a day off.  Oh and I got these groovy little blue flip flops in Mexico.  They are called "Havaianas".  Who forgets there flip flops on a trip to Mexico?  Well it is a good thing I did or I wouldn't have these guys. I wear them all the time. 

Isn't this the coolest. I wonder how many of these will be sold over the weekend.  Nice marketing.  I love this can. 

I bought his light, that I call my "Spritzer", from a dealer at market.  I love vintage lighting and I could not leave without this little guy.  It still does not have a home but my "Spritzer" also looks like a "Firecracker" so I thought I would show it to you now, just in time for the 4th of July!  I hope you get to enjoy fireworks with the people you love, where ever you are this 4th......hee hee

My good friend and designer Cortney Bishop told me this novel idea!  She said that a great thing to do with all the bags you get with shoes or clothes are great to keep collections of toys in.  Especially toys with lots of little pieces and parts. They are just perfect for puzzle pieces and Legos.  Sure does beat plastic bags and it is a great way to recycle these great little bags.

Have a fun and safe weekend, Jenny
