Memory Day

Hello Everyone,

I only have time for a quick post this morning. In a few hours, the house will be filled with party goers.  Our youngest grandson is turning the big "4" in a couple of days, so we are all gathering here to celebrate in the backyard with a pool party.

I read in a quilting book to use what you have to decorate your home.  Don't buy anything new, look around, rearrange things, and it will all look new. With the 4th of July coming soon, I went around and gathered up some items that are red, white and blue.

I'm starting to collect colored glass just like my Grandmother, Mother and Aunt.  I think the colored glass is just collecting dust, until I move it all around and put it together with a quilt.

I'm off to start my day......a memory day.  It's not every day that you turn FOUR! 

As always,


P.S. Stay tuned for a giveaway soon.  My 500th post is a big milestone and it is fast approaching.  


  1. How festive, Lynn! Love the colored glass - which reminds me I have some red sitting in a cupboard probably screaming to come out for the 4th of July! Happy Birthday to your granddaughter! May her day be filled with love and laughter!

  2. What a fun day you have planned ! HAPPY 4 TH BIRTHDAY !!!!

    Your quilt just looks perfect with your colored glass !

  3. Love the colored glass with your quilt.

    Happy, Happy Birthday to the little person in your life. Have fun.

  4. What a neat idea about using what you have. Though I don't think that does me much good. Likely I'd just have a bunch of fabric cuts scattered everywhere. Hehehe.

  5. Hope the party was a success. The blue quilt is gorgeous! I also love the deep blue glass. I have collected cobalt glass for a few years, sparked by a memory of my grandfather's cobalt blue glass eye cup. Remember the days when people washed their eyes? After finding a similar one in a thrift shop, I was on a quest. A week later I found a doll's tea set in the cobalt glass and have collected ever since!

  6. Your RWB corner looks wonderful. I hope the party went well, and you are not too tired after it?
