~Happy 4th of July and Simple & Sweet Fridays #174~



I finished decorating the table for the holiday.
A picnic basket filled with mason jars and sparklers for the celebration.
I used my blue and white calico dishes from Staffordshire, England.
My first set of dishes I brought when I was in my twenties.
Simple tablesetting with Red goblets.
The kids love white cupcakes with sprinkles.
A decorated bling bottle with flags displayed in it.
Colored star straws in a white porcelain crown.
4th of July Cookies.
I ordered edible wafer papers from Fancy Flours.
I made sugar cookies with fondant icing.
Edible glitter to add some sparkle.
They're always fun to make.
Star sugar cookies.
We always make extra cookies to give to our neighbors and friends.


For a cool summer treat,
Watermelon and Blueberry Popsicles!
Hope you all have a wonderful

~Apple Espalier in the Garden~

Our Anna Apple espalier had lots of apples this year.
I wanted to share photos of the apples.






The apple espalier adds softness and color on our side fence.
Our son, Scott surprised us with making an apple pie.
Stan loved it for Father's Day.
We also made some appetizers.
Mary's Gone Crackers with cream cheese and bacon bits
and radishes with avocado.
Tomatoes with mozzarella cheese
Antipasto Plate
We surprised Stan and rented a saxophone for Father's Day.
He played in High School.
Scott set up his drum set to play with him.
Great Father's Day Surprise!!

The weather has been so nice in San Diego this past month.
We were able to enjoy the Bay by boat on several occasions and I wanted to share photos with you of our trips.
We were invited for a cruise around the Bay by our friends,
Tami and Mark. We spent the day around Coronado Bay.
