    What size flag did you buy and how do you display it? Is it a 2' x 3' size for a flagpole or the smaller 12" x 18" size that you can hang on one of those wrought iron stands that you push into the ground? I have a large collection of flags, both sizes, but the flag poles and small flag racks were in the second shipment so Vic didn't get a chance to hang anything up. We have a flag pole base on the garage, I'll have to see if I can reach it with the small ladder. I have a patriotic flag for July (porch scene with rocking chair and red, white, and blue bunting) but I'm not sure what I have for August (a beach scene maybe). I love changing them out every month. Have you checked out Just for Fun Flags online, www.justforfunflags.com? They have an amazing selection.

    While you are dreaming of Fall, I am counting down the days to Spring. About 6 weeks to go.

    I think you are right with that guess, Pamela :)

    I went to Hobby Lobby last week and all Fall/Thanksgiving was out in full force!!! Pumpkins, pumpkins - EVERYWHERE!!!!

    Side Note: Also most of their Christmas stuff was out - no trees yet but all the ornaments, ribbon, decor, craft kits, etc. are displayed in all their glory.

    Anyways, I held firm and resisted the urge to fill my cart and walked back to the clearance corner. Totally lucked out and found boxes (4 in each box) of dark green velvet pumpkins - maybe 4" wide? Oh so cute! They are strung with clear fishing line so you can hang them as ornaments.

    I'm going to clip that off and pile them - with other things - into big white ceramic bowls and use in my china cabinets or as centerpiece on a table. The dark green will really pop!!!

    Best part? $0.47 a box!!! So basically 12 cents each! It always pays to check out the clearance section tucked at the back of the store!!!

    DN wanted to go to Michael's after we finished car shopping. A lot of their fall things were out. I don't know if they'll have more or not.

    Rural King has a big selection of fall themed items - picked up a large chalkboard "sign" that looks like recipe for Pumpkin Pie - and a large metal sign with a red truck with a large pumpkin in back with wording about hayrides, etc. Can't wait to decorate for fall!!!

    Also got a huge white metal pie dish that says Farm to Fork on the inside - it's large enough to become part of my non holiday decor on top of the kitchen cabinets!

    DH was the one who wanted to stop at Rural King - and I was the only one to buy anything!!! LOL
