Stars, Stripes & Shadows

We caught an interesting shadow pattern on one of our flags in our summer display at the store yesterday. Wishing all of you a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend in the States.
We also want to take time to thank all soldiers everywhere, who have given up their freedom for ours ~ Thank you !
It's Shadow Shot Sunday - for more shadows from around the world - visit our favorite place for shadow gatherers at

There is such sacrifices made by our service members, so many paid the ultimate sacrifice. The shadows interwound in the flag make it so eye catching. That we notice the flag is what's important - wecannot ever forget!

Here in UK we are remembering the evacuation of Dunkirk 70 years ago - we must never forget.

What a wonderful setting, as antique dealers, we honor the flags old and new in our shops, they have special meaning and this is one of their days to be honored in memory of our brothers and sisters lost...unlike my one comment that said my old flag should be retire with honor. I believe the honor is in the remembering the souls old and young that have sacrificed it all, not the age of the flag...Betsy Ross might disagree with him!

Have a safe holiday!
