Show Me Land of the Brave, Home of the Free
This week has been a great reminder of what makes America strong- that in the times of destruction we can come together and help those in need. It reminds us that we can pray for those affected by the storms and we can give to those who can offer practical help.
If you would like to help, Samaritan’s Purse http://www.samaritanspurse.org and the Red Cross http://www.redcross.org are wonderful organizations that provide on the ground help to those directly hurt by the storms.
Lets celebrate freedom!
- A favorite stuffed teddy is all dressed for a parade, and my collection of red, white and blue is all brought out to celebrate America’s birthday! (or Memorial Day). I have been collecting for years and store it all in accessible clear tubs marked “patriotic”.
- A new favorite to add to my collection of seasonal decorating is the Round Top Collection’s Chalkboard jars. This versatile Jar with the change of a magnet or chalkboard message leaps from one celebration to the next!
- I love to group complimentary items to make a statement. The metal flag container doubles as a silverware holder for the fun family cookout! Filled with a permanent ivy the green adds life. You could easily substitute a fresh flowering plant or maybe a fresh herb!
- Ribbon! The addition of red satin ribbon compliments the red, white and blue theme.

Happy decorating y’all!
