Happy Independence Day

The Royal Cranky Family just wanted to wish everyone a 4th of July! God Bless those that died for OUR FREEDOM & OUR INDEPENDENCE!
This is the American centerpiece that I put together on my breakfast room table.  I love Americana! It is something about flags and the colors that draw me in...I am very proud and blessed have been born in the USA...                                                     
This little fella has been with me for a very long time. He was purchased for a dime in Muskogee, OK @ a garage sale!
The sweet sailor girl was given to me by a shop owner in my home town. How precious is she? Thank you Cynthia!

I couldn't pass up this little donkey. Even though we are not democrats, I thought he looked so cute among the Americana decor with the flag and blue feather sticking out of his hiney! LOL Now I need an elephant...
Just a little "festive" American decor welcoming all that enter the Cranky Castle!  I made the Uncle Sam 20 years ago! He's still standin' proud...
Dixie Belle, Sassy & Ruby Fawn wish everyone a Happy July 4th!
Ok...Ruby got a little tired after about 20 pics of posing!

Thank God for our freedom...while relaxing with family & friends!

  2. WONDERFUL tribute CQ!!! I LOVE your centerpiece! How fun is that?! Your poochies are too cute also...Neither of mine would stand for such fussery...(And come to think of it, a Siberian would look pretty silly dressed up like that, don't you think?) ;o) And gotta love those swimsuits...!!
