Stars and Cupcakes On the Patio



Chocolate dolloped cupcakes anyone?

Just after breakfast no less. 

With a definite nod to the Fourth of July celebration.



























Hydrangea and butterfly bush flowers from the garden in our sweet Granny's Lenox vase.



The pink hydrangeas are blooming again and I am delighted.
 Plus we got rain last night and when I shot these images it was a cool 70 degrees this morning.

Star plates: Williams Sonoma via yard sale

Siam Forks: yard sale

Vintage Tablecloth: I have had it for years (probably thrifted)

Cup Cake Liners: Michael's


I party on the internet here:



happy 4th of july
