Happy Saturday to you all and a Happy Memorial day weekend!
Hope you enjoy it with your family and friends, and may you also FIRST and Foremost, take the time to remember those whom have died for our Nation’s service!
Did you know Memorial day was once called Decoration Day? I found a little history on that, and you may like to read about it
Also, just as a reminder that Thursday May 31st is the Magazine copy cat challenge party.
Looking very forward to that as well.
I always use what I have around the house for these challenges. That indeed makes it a bit more challenging, and resourceful.
My upcylced spray painted cans, with a wrap of patriotic ribbon.
Enjoy the weekend, and I will see you later on tomorrow for the Newbie party!
Amen, Debbie, to remembering what our freedom cost so many. Blessings to you and your family….loving your scrapcan little flower holders-xo Diana
Very cute and very AmeriCANa! Get it? I know I’m so lame. LOL! Seriously, though I really like the cans with the ribbon. It’s such a great idea. I also love the seriousness of reminding us to remember those who have fought and died for our country. We are so thankful!
Have a wonderful weekend, Debbie:)
My grandmother Elizabeth called it Decoration Day. She had the most BEAUTIFUL garden. She saved coffee cans all year long. On decoration day, we decorated them with construction paper and a ribbon, filled them with water and her garden flowers and took them to the family cemeteries. She loved this day of remembrance.
Your cute little cans bring back her memory. Well said, well done, Debbie!
Have a wonderful weekend Debbie! Those cans look super cute!

Yep, definitely in the South it is called decoration day, although earlier in our history it was celebrated the first Sunday in May. Since I was born on the first Sunday in May, my family always teased me saying that I was born at the decoration! :/

Very, very cute…and a Happy Memorial Day to you!!!

Love the spray painted cans. I have been saving them to do this too. Have a wonderful Memorial Day!!!!
So funny because my husband and I JUST had this discussion because I said I remember celebrating ‘something called Decoration Day’ when I was little. We googled it and found that yes, that’s what they USED to call Memorial Day. Love the little decorated cans!
What a sweet comment from Lynne. I enjoyed hearing her story. Look forward to scouting new talent at the party!!! Wee 😉
Have a great day!!
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Memorial Weekend.
Great post Debbie! We remember!
Have fun with your family and friends.

Lovely post! Hope you and your family are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. 🙂
Happy Memorial Day, Debbie. God Bless America.
Those are the cutest cans. I did not know that about Memorial day. Great info. Have a good one!
Enjoy this special holiday, Debbie! Have fun!
Enjoy this wonderful, sacred, holiday, Deb.
May God continue to bless America.
Very nice reminder, Debbie, of the real reason for the holiday. It’s so easy to get caught up with end of school, cookouts, swimming, & forget about why we get to enjoy all those fun things.
Love those cute painted cans. I may have to copycat your copycat…..lol!
Happy Memorial Day!
Happy Memorial Day Debbie!
I just realized that the link I had to your blog had changed. I’m glad to be getting updates again. 🙂
Working on my post for the copycat challenge now! See you on the 31st!
