When I was about 9 or 10 there was an Independence Day Fire Hydrant Painting contest in our home town. Naturally I had a panic attack and begged my parents to let me paint the hydrant on our corner in stars and stripes. I swear the paints they gave us were lead filled and toxic, but that's another story! After I spent an entire day in the sun revamping a hideous, crusty yellow fire hydrant into a dazzling red, white and blue MESS, my parents took us around town to suss out the competition. Let's just say I didn't get the prize that year. I did however have a stash of red white and blue paint for all kinds of other projects! Today, it's still one of my favorite color combinations.
Happy 4th my friends! xoxo, Mark
I decided to embellish my 4th with

Fireworks wine glasses!
Who doesn't need a decorated beer mug?!
My little ice bucket only holds one beer!
Cookies are almost ready!
A bit of my table setting
Glue on some stars! I went a little nuts
I can't resist a painted pot project
