*Sunshine & Sparklers*

The 4th of July is one of our “favorite-st” holidays!  Fireworks, yummy food and the pride of our country make this celebration of freedom ONE.  FUN.  DAY.  We were even more thrilled about this 4th since our hometown of Gainesville, Texas is a finalist in Rand McNally’s “The Best of Road-Most Patriotic Town in America”!  Rick & Sandi, a couple that tours and votes on the finalist towns, arrived yesterday to start sightseeing the historical city along with Rand McNally, USA Today and The Travel Channel. Storefronts, yards and porches have been dressed to the nines to show this Medal of Honor Host City’s patriotism.


The Rand McNally’s bus and crew stopped at one of our favorite shops, Cahoots Handbags!  Paige Davidson is the owner of this savvy shop downtown that carries handmade clutches and handbags out of vintage fabrics, a line of Cahoots Baby perfect for a little one, artwork by Paige Davidson, jewelry by Kelly Lane and other unique gifts and knickknacks.  Some of her art is being displayed on the new TV show “Dallas” and in some of our residences we have worked on (pictures to come).

Oh, how we love this festive clutch!  Check out the store at Cahoots Handbags.

Feeling so motivated by all the RED, WHITE & BLUE, we wanted to share some DIY projects, designs and products for your home that add a little pop and flash of American inspired pattern and color!

Hope everyone has a safe, firework filled holiday.  But no Roman Candle wars:)
