Happy 4th of July Weekend!

I hope all of you are having a wonderful 
July 4th weekend.
We have stayed pretty busy this so far. 
Friday we took the kids to the zoo and became members
so I can now go whenever they get to restless. 
Pictures of that adventure to come soon.

Saturday I decided to get crafty.
I saw this idea over at Oopsey Daisy 
who was featuring Sweet C's Designs
adorable worn wood flag.

I just so happened to have some of the materials so I 
threw this little gem together in 
maybe 30 minutes.
I think it turned out great and very country rustic.
Which is what I was going for.  

 Materials Needed:
1 wood pallet or wood boards to put together
Red White and Blue paint
White spray paint for stars
Patience if you have small helpers.

My little helpers...

I ended up having to repaint the stripes since I did them backwards.
Don't tell my helpers I painted over their hard work. 
 Sitting pretty in my yard.

I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July and get to see some incredible
fireworks displays.
It is still up in the air whether I will be going into Boston
to watch the Boston Pops and the fireworks there.
