Good Morning Kindred Spirits......

Allow me to wish each of you a very Happy and Safe
July 4th...stay cool and celebrate the USA!


For the first time, in the history of Estelle's,
I will be taking off the remaining months of Summer
to recharge my batteries of creativity and enjoy
time with my family........
I want to take this time to restore my heart and soul....
I want to think of decorating ideas for the fall...
I want to think of menus for November and Thanksgiving....
I want to decide what Christmas theme I want to use for December.....

Please enjoy the remaining months of Summer
and come back to visit me beginning in September...
we will share home d├ęcor, delicious recipes and talk about
books, and movies.....
it's going to be fun on a bun! 
Y'all take good care!
