Happy Fourth of July

Have a happy & safe holiday if you celebrate it. If not have a great beginning to the week.

A few things:

I love
these photographs from the White House last year. I only saw them today. The first is so sweet!

I want to make this Swedish cream cake. Add a few blueberries & it can be Fourth of July cake or a Bastille Day cake.

Speaking of Bastille Day..thanks to a
French friend who has made it her mission that fireworks are on my dance card tomorrow. Many bisous to her (& her family). It will be fun to be with these leetle kids...there's even a 7 month old. Squeal! (That's me squealing, not the baby:)

I'm trying to post again regularly but things are muddled. I do post regularly on
Giulia Geranium & if people think they'll comment now & again, I'll enable comments after 2 years. Please let me know what you think; I've had a "considering it" note over there for a few months. Thanks so much! xoxo

Giulia said...

Thanks, Julie.

I had comments on GG & then they were hideous. I wasn't used to that sort of thing...terrible things when I posted on things like Anne Frank, Darfur, Rwanda (!). Yep.

Happy 4th of July!!! Enjoy the fireworks, tonight. Ours were last night and I could see them from my terrace.
I'm heading over to GG. I'll comment there if you turn it on again...Nasty people.
Have fun today.

Hi Catherine...I did enjoy the fireworks & the company. I don't know about turning on comments now. I can't decide. Maybe after the summer break? Eh.
