I guess it has to do with moving to Texas and having few friends.
Everyone seems to stick with their family and not invite outsiders.
We are ok with that......................we have to be, its part of moving!
I decided to set our table in the kitchen today.
A simple table that we will not use or will we??????
I'm not sure.............................We use to sit at every table I created.
Do you use every table you create?
I think it's because I have been setting the dining room table for four people,
and we are only two!
I will have to remedy that, don't you think?
What does Memorial Day mean to me?
We remember..................................not only today but everyday!
Our men & women willing to die for our freedom of speech, press and religion.
So today in my own way I am remembering...........................
(Mr. Sweetladyelaine is a Vietnam Vet, my Dad was a Korean War Vet and I have many cousins who also served and are serving now! so I can't forget)
Those who have given up their lives so I can live,
my life as peaceful productive citizen.
Today on my table I used the colors of our flag!
I started off with a red tablecloth and layered a white one over the red.
It looked a little more polished with layering of both colors.
Then added a blue round straw place mat, a silver charger, a red dinner plate, a patriotic salad plate and a white bowl. A silver star napkin ring seemed appropriate for my white napkin.
I love this Ralph Lauren plate. I only have four of Hampton's Flag.
The red dinner plate is from the Dollar Tree. I have wanted red plates for a long time.
The star shaped candle holders are new this year. Again, another dollar Store find.
The runner and white casserole are thrift store treasures.
Decided to spruce up my childhood dresser while I was at it...........
I never had a dresser in the kitchen before but love having my place mats handy!
I had to include this picture!
Memorial Day has always meant a family picnic at Sacandaga State Park growing up.
So with Mom & Dad not living in the same state, she still goes to the park on Memorial Day,
with a few family members.
Do you have any childhood traditions for Memorial Day?
I hope you and yours have a wonderful Memorial Day.
Remember those who have fought for our freedom with a special prayer this Memorial Day.
