Project 64: Red

I wanted to share my treasures that had the color red, but since today is our nation's birthday, I choose this flag photographed in a local cemetery to represent my entry.

Being an ignorant teenager,  I used to get embarrassed when my mom's eyes would tear up at the sight of this symbol of our wonderful nation.  As I aged, I understood her emotion about it.  She had three brothers who served proudly during WWII.  Now I get that same thrill.  I hope you do too!
Happy 4th of July to all you readers!
Babushka (nesting) dolls from the Ukraine; I bought them from a story telling grandma who was from there.  My  apple box holds paper clips.  My Stratford-upon-Avon patch is from my granddaughter who went there while studying at the London Center.  
My dad's grandparents were from there.

My phone turned out to be more decorative than practical.
