Happy Birthday America

It's the 4th of July weekend...I saw several cars on the road this morning loaded with traveling paraphenalia headed for parts unknown. Me, I'm headed to La Grande for the weekend to spend the 4th with my youngins. We'll be grilling, and no doubt spilling; sipping pop and popping fire works; soaking up some rays and getting soaked by the sprays of water balloons and sprinklers. Ahh, the simple pleasures of summer.
Aren't these adorable fire crackers fun? You make them using toilet paper and paper towel rolls, crepe paper and vintage americana photos. The wicks are pipe cleaners, and you fill the tube with surprises. I always find great ideas too late to do anything about...not to mention all of my artsy craftsy stuff is pretty much packed away for now. But I'm thinking I'll still manage to bring some red, white and blue decor to the abode in true junker fashion.
