Thank you all of you who have served in America's armed forces.

Memorial weekend in America is a time to honor our men and women in the armed forces and all that they have done for this country. It is a time to pay respects with visitations to and flowers on graves and much television is dedicated to them and their wars. It is also a time of get-togethers with friends and family, also the beginning of summer and outdoor events. It was a beautiful weekend.
Here are some cool things I made, acquired or saw on this memorial weekend...
I made the French collage, melted French wine bottle, lavender display for a French theme party.
Way cool recycled pedestal serving plate my very dear friend made for me.
A creative card I purchased from auntpeelscrafts.
Nature beginning its colorful cycle. Catmint at the arboretum.
Eurasian Eagle Owl named Malachi at the arboretum. Check out those eyes!
