This regal looking red building was part of the DuPage County (in Illinois) courthouse before moving all of the government facilities to a brand new location a few years ago. Since that time they have converted this into condos. I was fortunate enough to be in attendance at a house walk that toured one of the condos a few years ago and all I can say is it was gorgeous. Those big tall windows let in so much beautiful light, the kitchens were state of the art, trust me it was spectacular, drool worthy.
While at the French Market on Saturday I came upon this cute white dog, Cody. He is a Wheaton Terrier, and he was giving his owner quite a bit of terror. The market was not the place for him...too many people and way too hot, but he sure was cute.
Sammie loved marching around the yard carrying her red, white & blue flags on the 4th...!!
Oh yum, cookies with sparkles...
This little vase wrapped with a star, sets on my windowsill holding a snip from my garden. Added texture, lightened, darkened, played around with...don't ask, can't remember.
Hop over to Ashley's blog and enjoy many more reds, whites, blues, sparkles & stars.
Until next time.....
