Patriotic Mantel

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. I am fortunate that out of the family members who have served and are currently serving none have been lost in the pursuit of our freedom. Thank you God.

Like a lot of American families we spend part of the Memorial Day weekend celebrating family with a cookout. Ours was yesterday and a good time was had by all. In preparation for the event I decorated our mantel in a patriotic theme using everything recycled. I made the vases (HERE), found the trays at the thrift store for $2 each, the picture of my granddaughter was a gift to me on Valentine’s Day and the little crystal clock was a wedding gift.

I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend!
