Hello, and Happy Memorial Day to you, dear friends!
I hope you are enjoying the weekend and celebrating
as well as taking the time to honor and remember those
who served our country and gave their lives
so that we can enjoy our freedoms!!
Both Jeff and I have family members who served
and know that you do as well!!
We certainly have much to be grateful for
and say a BIG THANK YOU!!!
The flag is a big part of this celebration and remembrance
and I wanted to share with you some of my displays
around my home
using the flag,
the symbol of our country!!!
My dining room table was the perfect spot to place these two flag holders
along with my old bowl and a flag pillow I made!!
I love how they all look together!!!
Here is a large coverlet pillow I made with an old flag hand stitched in place!
Two red birds I made
add a pop of color!!!
Another flag pillow in front of an old brown jug with a little flag!
The stitched piece behind it was made by my talented friend
and all the colors are perfect together!!
Even my doll wanted to get in on the celebration with her own flag!
My corner cupboard is right above my TV in the living room
and was the perfect spot
for this old flag and my handmade Star and Flag MakeDo!
I get to see it as I stitch, punch, or hook, while watching TV!!
Finally, my dry sink is the perfect spot for a patriotic grouping!
More large flag pillows, small flag pillows,
some flags in an old brown jug
and a twig wreath with a flag!!
Three cheers for the RED, WHITE, and BLUE!!!
I hope you enjoyed your visit here today
and that you are also enjoying your weekend!
May we all be reminded
that we have so much to be grateful for!
Freedom truly is a gift and one we are so blessed to have
because of the sacrifices of so many!!!
Oh, say does that star spangled banner yet wave
O're the land of the free
and the home of the brave! Francis Scott Key
Wishing you all the joys of freedom, my friends~
