Invincibelle Spirit!


First of all... *HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY*!!  I hope you enjoy the day celebrating this great country that we live in. Although it is not a perfect country, it is still the best in the world and I thank God for that. 


My Invincibelle Spirit hydrangeas have really taken off and blessed me this year with tons of gorgeous blooms.  I purchased two of these plants a couple years ago at Menards during their end of season sale. They were on clearance for $5 each {regular $24 each} and I hoped they would live for me and thrive...and they have! I am so happy with them. 


I took the opportunity yesterday to take a few goodies outside for a photo shoot. I am not an expert in styling at all, but I  try to put pretty things together and see how it goes. I love the elements that I chose and love the way the photos turned out. 


Such delicate and gorgeous flowers ~ 


Pretty pink blooms laying on my french style napkins from Pottery Barn ~ 


I love adding vintage clock faces in my decor so I added one here as well ~




We will be heading out to my moms soon for a fourth of July cookout and it is shaping up to be a fun day! We usually go to a local parade, but I don't think we will have time for that this year.
Happy fourth everyone!!

Hope you had a wonderful holiday Sandi! Your photos are amazing!!!!
I can't get over those gorgeous pink hydrangeas. We just have blue ones here, but I've always admired the pink. You've styled this shoot just like a page out of JDL!
