Move Over Martha!

I wish! 
This month's magazine of Martha Stewart Living was the inspiration of the photos below!
I love the Fourth of July and we go all out too! I had a lot of fun recreating these pictures.
Thanks Debbie for getting me off my rear!



This month's issue shows you how to decorate your bicycle and wagons in a fun patriotic way.

Here's my take!


Here's Martha's


I had my handsome little man get in the action too!


Patriotic bucket of fun! 


My house. Just pretend there's a bunch of people out there!
Oh, pretend the grass is cut too! ;)


Pretty cool! Here's a bunch of photos from the shoot.




I made a cushion for his wagon about 6 years ago.
I decorate it every year.





My old rusty wagon has changed so much in 1 week!



Makes me happy!


Makes me smile!




Happy Fourth of July to everyone!!

Stay Safe and have fun!
