Freebie Friday - Poppy

Every year as a child I remember going to the VFW with my grandmother and we would make paper red poppies.  My memory of this is vague but I do remember a bunch of red crape paper and floral wire, a lot of laughing and candy.  Those veterans always had candy till this day I associate butterscotch hard candy with helping at the VFW as a child.

I always try to go to shopping somewhere the weekend before Memorial Day so I can make my donation and get my poppy.  I even got my kids into getting  the flowers, my daughter asked me this week when can she get her red flower from the nice guys outside the store.  I told her soon.



Tomorrow is the Operation Write Home Blog Hop which is an amazing blog hop for an amazing cause.  If you have any spare time this weekend please hop on through and and leave some love (I will also have a special Freebie for the Blog Hop.)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend, my family and I will be hosting a neighborhood BBQ with family and friends.  It is important to remember why we celebrate Memorial Day and I hope y'all take a moment to remember those and their families who sacrificed so much for us.
