This and That





I hope you had a lovely Holiday weekend.
I always think about my Daddy.
He is buried in the National Cemetery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
When I lived in New Mexico, I would visit around Memorial Day.



Memorial Day



I have my patriotic decorations out.
They'll stay up until after the 4th of July.



Memorial Day



I do love Quirky!
The cat and owl vases are from the West Elm Fairy Tale collection.
Perfect for a cat and owl lover!


Quirky Vases


I finished knitting a shawl.
It is light weight from Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball.

And, I'm all set for my summer hibernation.
(I hibernate because of the heat.)
I have plenty of yarn! 
I found the pattern for the shawl in Knit Simple Holiday 2017 magazine.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

My parents are buried in Oklahoma and neither of my sisters who live there is well enough to take flowers to them.. Next year I'm going to call a florist to do it.
We keep our decorations up till 4th of July too.

Wonderful post! Your photos are just lovely.
Memorial Day reminds me of my dad, too. He served in WW2. I miss him so much...

love the figurines. I collect them but don't know who makes them. Yours are just adorable. LeeAnna

There's something about red, white and blue that just makes me want to break into the National Anthem … inspiring (your decorations, not my singing)! Looking forward to seeing the products of your "hibernation".

Hi Snap! Long time, no chat. Quirky is good; I like quirky, too. Are you really hibernating this summer? The heat? Your shawl is just lovely and probably just the right weight for cool summer evenings or cold air conditioned cars or rooms. Thanks for popping by to visit me today.

Your patriotic d├ęcor is just lovely, are you still a collector of vintage items, do you add to it throughout the summer months? Love those quirky vases so whimsical and fun, thanks for sharing with the Mosaic Monday crowd today.

Your quirky vases add a lot of lightheartedness to your post. The shawl will be great for cool summer evenings, if you ever have those in your area. Have a wonderful week.

The shawl is so lovely...what a pretty color too! And we hibernate when it gets hot too. I have to run my errands first things in the morning and then stay inside all afternoon. But I have lots of fun projects planned. LOVE your patriotic pretties! Hugs, Diane

I love your patriotic decor. Did your figurines come from Christmas Traditions? I used to search the website for cute patriotic inspiration. Thanks for sharing at Keep In Touch.
