    I’m torn between the maps and dictionary entry, but I’d probably have to go with the map. Very cool pieces!

  4. I really like the dictionary necklaces but I think the map necklaces are my favorite!

  5. Love these ideas! I had a wonderful chat with a veteran today who was collecting for hospitalized veterans. I, of course, shook his hand and thanked him. I offered him a drink/snack, but he declined. I somehow knew he would, but I had to ask. I am thankful now and always for those who serve(d) our country.

  6. Thanks so much for including my Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles! They sure were good! Have a great weekend!

  7. Thanks so much for including our patriotic sensory bin in the list!
    Have an awesome weekend!
