Honoring Memorial Day!

I gathered up a few things to decorate for Memorial Day in honor of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States armed forces. It is a federal holiday and can you believe it, our school district has to make up two "bad weather days" and they chose Memorial Day as one of the kids will be in school in my town!

I like to use the faux candles that light up with batteries which makes them safe to place in flower arrangements.

I also like to use rocks, stones and glass eggs when decorating birds' nests and of course twigs that you gather up from nature walks or from your own backyard. This egg is called a "magic glass egg" that changes color from opal to blue when held in the palm of your hand and also has a different look when wet.

And don't forget to save your old bottles, the are great for repurposing into vases. This blue one is perfect for patriotic holidays.
