My favorite holiday is the 4th of July or Independence Day. When I was a kid it meant cap guns and charcoal snakes with my cousins at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. It was grandma’s fried chicken, potato salad, watermelon and chocolate cake with ice cream. It also was hot so we would run through the sprinklers in our shorts and tank tops. In the evening we would settle down with the cooling temperatures and what the beautiful sparkling red, white and blue fireworks. There were other colors of course but my favorites were the patriotic colors. When I designed the latest penny rug I had previously used the pedal car in my spring bowl fillers but I really wanted to celebrate Independence Day and Freedom with my little pedal car. It is all decked out and ready to go down the parade route. I also couldn’t resist adding in the fireworks. I hope you find it as fun and I did.
