Independence Day

O beautiful for spacious skies,


For amber waves of grain,


For purple mountain majesties


Above the fruited plain!


America! America!

God shed his grace on thee

And crown thy good with brotherhood     
From sea to shining sea!
As a nation we have been blessed with more than we can ever imagine. 
Wishing all a wonderful Independence Day Weekend.  Sea Witch

Good morning Witch!

Great pics and a great post! I am trying to catch up on my reading. I am staying too far behind!!

I like the idea of the weekly meme. I do know that it will require dedication on your part which will be time consuming, but if you feel the need to host one then I think it is a great idea. So many of us have antiques that I know we'd love to share. I know you will come up with a great theme.

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit. We love having company!
