Memorial Day Decorations and Tablescape

Hi everyone...I hope you have all had a wonderful week. I am putting two posts together today...First part is my tablescape for Susan's Tablescape Thursday.... My tablescape is very simple. I have paper napkins, plasticware and melamine dishes....but my grandchildren love the colors!


I have shown this little bear before, but it is a favorite of mine. My grandma used to braid my hair and then make a hat like this for me when I was little...I remember it everytime I look at this bear!







For Show and Tell at Kelli's I thought I would show the rest of my Patriotic decorations. I don't have a lot, but what I have will stay out until after July 4th!






Got this teapot last year at Cracker Barrel for like $4.00. Don't see those deals this year!

This book is so precious and I got it at the Dollar Tree a few years back.




Well, that is my Patriotic items...hope you enjoyed.
I need to also answer a few questions.....the dog we are babysitting for a friend is a German Shepherd mix. She is a sweety and I love having her. I should have her good and spoiled by the time she goes home!
Unfortunately, the little baby left in the tub that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago did pass away.
I bought the bicycle wreath from QVC....I KNOW, I fell in love with it too!
I see my oncologist on June 9th. I am feeling much better finally and thank you for all your concern. I will be starting chemo again, which I dread, but it is necessary. One day at a time.... it is the only way I know how to get through this. And I know that many of you totally understand.
Have a great weekend and don't forget to visit the other blogs posted at Kelli's and Susan's. You will be so glad you did!

Your table looks so pretty and it is nice that you keep the decorations out until the 4th of July. Red white and blue are such fun colors to work with and your decorations are so cute. Now the $4 teapot was a good deal. I love to go into Cracker Barrel just to see the cute gifts and for the meatloaf:) Enjoy today.
