"When Hell Freezes Over"
























I'm ready for the 4th!  Yesterday I found the flag pillow above at the thrift store near my job for only $3!  As well as the metal tray $3, and the flag coffee cups for 30 cents each!

The book, "When Hell Freezes Over" is by Darrien Lee, published in 2005.  It's a loan from the library.  Since it is hot as "HELL" right now in Fort Worth, Texas, the title intrigued me!  <smile>  It was 107 degrees yesterday.


























I found the flag stuck in the pot above, brand new at GW for $1.  I got several to go around the yard, front and back.


























One of my Turks Cap finally produced a bud!!  Yeah!  Hopefully more with pop out soon!!!



















I purchased a new swimsuit this week, size 12!! Down from size 16 this time last year! <insert fist pump here>  I plan to relax in my zero gravity chair in my new swimsuit reading "When Hell Freezes Over" later today.  Not brave enough to post a picture of THAT yet!  LOL!

Enjoy your summer!

NIce vignette, and I'm jealous that you found such adorable things at such great prices.

Wow, 107 is hot. It's been cooler here and it's supposed to rain the rest of the week.
