This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

A Little Red, White & Blue

So, I may have missed the Fourth - but I'm all prepared for Labor Day!!
I've added to my patriotic outdoor display.

Along with my Patriotic Plank and Gourd Birdhouse I scrounged around in the garage and found a birdhouse, wreath and drawer. I repainted the birdhouse with a few stars and stripes, added a muslin bow to the wreath and gave the drawer a make-over.
The drawer actually started out white. I dry brushed  it inside and out with some country blue and gray and my "canvas" was ready!

Next I made a list of some words that are important to me . . .
Picked up a paint brush and some black paint . . .
And came up with this subway art inspired piece.

I think this piece will give me several options and can have different looks depending what I put with it. I'm also thinking that I could add Christmas words to the back side and use it in a Christmas display.

Hope you enjoy this cutting file!
