I am putting aside my paint brush, the stories from the farm, jokes about my donkey and the project list today, in order to bring you something much more gratifying and from my heart.
I am very thankful and blessed ..... that my children have grateful hearts. A core belief that my husband and I walk through our life with daily. We remain conscious of the gifts and feeling of thankfulness in our lives.

For the record, I have never used duct tape for decorating or crafting purposes...ever. There I said it. It's out there.
I have sat back and ohh'd and ahhhh'd over all the ridiculously creative projects done with duct tape, in hopes of one day being accepted into the duct tape Hall of Fame...... by giving you that same ohhhh and ahhhhh moment.
So here goes.
I thought maybe that time could be today, and the project could be my 4th of July patriotic tablescape . A project where I was inspired by a pack of duct tape that I picked up at Home Depot....for .99.
I was hoping that you might be inspired by these green plastic plates that I turned into patriotic chargers with a little white spray paint and duct tape around the perimeter.
And with it's festive flair down the middle of the table, my very used burlap runner ......with some duct tape.
The glass jars that use to hold pickles, spaghetti sauce and beets, will now be used to hold utensils and then for serving up some of my famous Georgia sweet tea, got the once around with some tape too.
And remember those fun wooden buoys that I used in my Summer mantel here, well they got a little dressed up for the soiree too.... with a little duct tape. They are sitting on top of an old wicker charger that I sprayed painted red and then placed what is technically a candle holder, but using it as a vase, for some hydrangeas and ferns that I cut from here.
So tell me, did it work..... am I in? I will be back tomorrow for some more of my 4th of July ideas....just in case.
Are you apart of the Duct tape Hall of Fame? If not, you should be. But hurry, I don't know how long that tape will be in stock.
To live in such a great country, that I love
