Red White Blue and charming

Hoping your holiday is everything you want it to be. For me that includes a family cookout followed by relaxing with a stack of books and magazines....
or maybe in my yard at the Brayton Homestead, circa 1796, getting ready for its 213th Fourth of July....
or eating strawberries and cream (vintage needlepoint)...
but it is not a holiday until I bake Mom's famous chocolate pudding cake (shown above)! Have a wonderful holiday....

I love the bed in the nook -- it reminds me of one of Thomas Jefferson's beds in Monticello.
