Well it looks like you have got a great start on the holiday and wedding decorations! And I see sunshine in those pictures! Yay for sunshine! Love the pot filled bench. So cute.

And BTW, Grits are a food of Native American origin common in the Southern United States and mainly eaten at breakfast. They consist of coarsely ground corn, or sometimes hominy, in which case they are referred to as hominy grits. They are also sometimes called sofkee or sofkey from the Creek word. Grits are similar to other thick maize-based porridges from around the world, such as polenta, or the thinner farina.

Grits are usually prepared by adding one part grits to two-to-three parts boiling water, sometimes seasoned with salt. They are usually cooked for 15 – 20 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the grits become a porridge-like consistency. As grits expand when they are cooked, they need to be stirred periodically to prevent sticking and forming lumps. They may be served with grated cheese, butter, sausage or country ham red eye gravy.

Grits can also be fried in a pan or molded to create a firm block; the resulting block can be cut with a knife or wire, and the slices fried in a fat such as vegetable oil, butter, or bacon grease.

Just thought I would explain it a little better and BTW, I make the best grits ever and next time you come to the south I'll fix you some. :) Have a great day.

You my friend, are a great American.

just call me jo said...

The answer is No. You can't have too many patriotic displays! Love 'em. I have a few, but they pale in comparison. You go, America's girl. Are those flowers from this year? Look at all that vegetation. Somehow dying cactus don't look so good clad in red/white/blue bunting. I salute you!

I think you've got everything set up beautifully! :) Not too much, nope, never!

No, you can't have too much...unless you want to be a magnet for a terrorist. ;)

Love the wooden America sign!

Lesa said...

Looks great! I like it.

Trooper Thorn said...

Hmm... doesn't look like you are very proud of the Gem State though. How about some more Idaho nicknacks?

jen said...

Cute! And your yard's looking GREEN!

tammy said...

I think you need a few more.

Valerie said...

Love all of it! I don't think I have a single patriotic decoration anymore. They're so fun.

Kazzy said...

Growing up back east in VA I always thought those patriotic decorations were supposed to be up all year. Seriously. They are everywhere.

Your place looks terrific. ;)

MZ said...

Only problem is it cannot possibly be the 4th of July coming up. It is more like Valentines outside.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

You are just a lover...of family, red, white & blue and all things adorable. I just caught up on about 3 posts I'd missed. Your landscaping looks amazing and you're getting ready to party. I'll pray the weather cooperates!

Kimmie said...

NO, you cannot have too many patriotic crafts and pots...LOVE all of your decor!! Americana decor is one of my favorite decorating styles!

I need to take a trip up to your house and see everything that you have decorated with!! Looks awesome!

YAY that we are having better weather today. Sunshine and warmth will help all of your flowers bloom perfectly!

Thanks for sharing your fun!

I love the welcome on your door.
What's all this talk from GIGI about grits.
One of my DIL is from Florida and she LOVES her grits. I think they are kinda yukyish.
