{Some 4th of July Eye Candy for Ya!}

 Normally, I'd have been busy craftin' up some cute red, white, and blue decorations this week, but we took a relaxing week long staycation at my husband's parents' river cottage this past week. I thought I'd squeeze in a blog post or two, but I couldn't get their dial-up to work for me. Can you believe I spent a week with no internet connection?! I couldn't let the 4th pass by without sharing a little eye candy, though. I may not have been busy but I can assure you my fellow bloggers sure have!

How's about some adorable dessert kabobs from The Meringue Bake Shop? Yum!

I can't imagine ya'll missed these patriotic candy apples from Tidy Mom. They are just too cute!

Clair came up with this genius idea to color her popcorn to match the holiday! Can you imagine the possibilities for Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, etc? Check it out over at Clair's Creations.

I can just see getting the party started with these pop-rocks rimmed cocktails I saw over at Pizzazzerie. So pretty!

Looks like you can celebrate while still sticking to your diet with this festive fruit flag. See it over at Randy Son of Robert.

Wow, I just noticed a lot of these are food. I think I'm seeing a theme here! Okay, okay, I found a few non-food items:

How's this sweet doiley bunting I saw at The Scrap Shoppe Blog?

Or this fun star-spangled wreath over at The Cellar Door Stories?

And don't tell me you can resist this little Independence Day ruffle diaper cover. Check it out over at Daydream Believers.

And this last one really deserves a post all it's own. I thought I'd share my new favorite Etsy shop with you. It's called Anders Ruff Custom Designs.  They have the most precious party decor you have ever seen! This one picture doesn't do their July 4th party justice, so here's a few more:

See what I mean?

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th!
