Celebrating America the Beautiful

Hello sweet friends!

   While getting my patriotic post up, finally ! I've been thinking of so many awful things that have happened to our dear country, the United States of America, lately. Between floods, fires and terrorists attacks on American soil that killed innocent Americans, I don't know..

The latest Orlando shooting by people that load America with all their might, even if they are born in the same soil.
So many other shootings I don't care to enumerate anymore.
How you can't put up flags or any patriotic symbol of the great USA because someone doesn't like it, as it offends others, RIGHT IN THE SAME COUNTRY for heaven sake, as there are even some Politians, I notice, that care less about what Americans feel and only worry not to hurt the BAD guys !

I hardly recognize the country I grew up in with so many values, specially Judeo-Christian principles and yet we knew there were other religions too and we all respected them; while in school we placed our little hands in our chests to recite the "Pledge of Alliance to the United States."

I never, ever encountered any prejudice in my country. Only wonderful Americans with faults just like everyone else.

I hope you can all celebrate America this coming 4th. of July with all the love, respect and pride you can have for your country.

That's all I want to say, except maybe I am very, very sad and pray the next president of the USA respect this great country and keep it, along with the people of America, safe.

Here is my humble table to celebrate another birthday of America the Beautiful and  I say humble, cause the USA deserves so much more in my book !
I'm sorry for what I've just said, I am very sensitive about the United States lately and I can't help it.

Just don't comment anything hurtful if you don't agree. You can make me see otherwise, if I'm wrong, that's ok.

Thank you and GOD BLESS AMERICA the Beautiful.

I did my 4th. of July setting right here in the kitchen, the heart of our home, where we spend most of our time with family and friends.

Love our old farm table from our own previous 'farm house.'

I started with a white cotton placemat, a red charger, a white dinner plate, a red salad plate, blue and white 'Liberty Blue' transferware plate and ended with my star plates and a red teacup in each of the four places.

Some red white and blue flower pots and flags in a basket.

The complete stack of plates.
I have the Liberty Blue, Ironstone plates complete for eight, with soup plates, salad and dinner plates.

For napkins I used dish towels in red stripes and blue checks.



Thank you so much dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
