Gearing Up For Memorial Day

I love Memorial Day. A chance to show our thankfulness to those that served, our pride as Americans and a great excuse to decorate in red, white and blue. Plus, it is our families annual rib fest. School is almost out and summer is on its way. What a great weekend.



We have patriotic colors all year long so they fit right in.






My red and white quilt on the blue couch is perfect.


God Bless America! Every year I buy my hubby something patriotic to go with his collection. This was picked up at an antique store. Don't know if it is old or not but I just loved it.

That's just a taste of our decorating for the summer holiday.I will show you more later.

A wonderful day to celebrate and remember for sure. Your home looks lovely and cozy. Makes me want a cup of cocoa and it's almost 100 degrees here.
