My Cottage in July

 July is here (I know, we are actually half-way thru the month already. Wow! Where does the time go?)
 I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend! We had family over for a BBQ cookout and to see fireworks on the lake.
 We grilled hotdogs and also served pulled pork near the waterfront.
 My flag welcomed guests to "our pad".
 Even though the 4th of July is past, I decided to leave my patriotic decor up for the rest of the month.
 On the front step. . . my yellow potted Asiatic Lilies are in full bloom.


On the sun porch, I still have a few patriotic things on these Japanese lanterns.

 My red star hangs in the window, while my photo of the Bald Eagle that lives on our lake sits framed on a pedestal table.
 Of course, my favorite pillows fill the futon sofa and my patriotic heirloom quilt drapes the back.

 I still love displaying my "beachy" decor, like these window items. . . a stained glass sailboat(I made at our local pottery store) and a sitting pelican I got in Florida many moons ago.
 On a side table sets some more beach decor.

 Hope you are all enjoying July. May your summer be full of beautiful days and fun times.
