Hope your Fourth of July was fabulous!
We had some of our family over for a barbecue.
Yummmm..... hot dogs, brats (Worker Bee's family is from Wisconsin, 'nuff said), new potato salad with bacon and chives (from our kitchen garden), baked beans (with my secret ingredient - Jalepeno Peach Barbecue Sauce from Williams-Sonoma), corn on the cob (not from our kitchen garden - they're not ready yet), and watermelon.
Can you believe I didn't take any pictures? Totally got involved in just having fun and relaxing I'm afraid.
We set off fireworks in the street and sat out and enjoyed ice cream cones - which in my rather long winded way - brings us to the Quick, Cute, and EASY treat part of today's post.
ICE CREAM CONE WRAPPERS!
Found this on Martha Stewart's website. Just print them out, cut them, tape them and what a cute way to celebrate the holiday! The only problem I had with them was that only one printed per page - I'm pretty sure that with a little finagling they could have gotten two on a page and waste less paper.
Now here is where the inspiration starts.....
You could make your own cardboard template, use any appropriate scrapbook paper (although I suggest a lightweight paper), and you have a cute little decor and treat that hardly takes any effort.
I piled mine in a milkglass bowl that I bought at a yardsale on Saturday, but can you picture them in one of those glass jars? Like this one.....
Perfect for any theme!
Thanks for buzzing by today! Baby Bee and I will be working on our special project today and I expect it to be completely finished today.
Hope you find a way to cool off today!
