As the old saying goes, “Knee high by the 4th of July.”

That is what inspired my 4th of July Mod Podged hoe. What is more American then working in the garden with a red, white, and blue hoe? Ok, so there may be other things, but how cute is this? And yes, it is practical! I used mine all this weekend.

For the complete tutorial go here.

And a cute little star.

    This just cracks me up – not because it isn't cute – it's darling! It takes me back to when I was skiing as a girl. I had black skiis – just like everyone else in the '60's. So I put a ton of bright flower decals on my skiis. You could see them from a mile away!

    If I have to use a hoe, I want to be cute like yours! Stop by and visit Fab Finds for the 4th, if you get a chance. Opens tonite @ 9 pm pst.

    Cutest idea ever! If I did this I might be able to spot my tools that I lay down and lose in the garden!

  12. My wife and i have been very joyful that Albert could round up his preliminary research out of the precious recommendations he made out of the web pages. It’s not at all simplistic just to possibly be giving freely instructions that many some other people might have been trying to sell. Therefore we do understand we need the writer to thank for this. These illustrations you’ve made, the straightforward blog menu, the friendships you can give support to foster – it’s got everything sensational, and it’s really leading our son and the family recognize that this matter is awesome, and that is exceptionally fundamental. Many thanks for the whole thing!
