A Sunday spent window shopping with a friend, I pass by this quaint little store and spot the most amazing bench. Why amazing? Well, it’s wood and metal and very Americana. My husband has a collection of wooden, metal, and glass American flags, and I knew he would love this. So I took a photo, smiling to myself and being all proud of my find. Meanwhile, WHY DIDNT I ASK IF IT WAS FOR SALE?!?!?!?!

Now, If I had only thought to ask!

Ailsa, at wheresmybackpack, has suggested a tribute to the late Nelson Mandela, with a post depicted symbols. She mentioned two that we display a great deal of in our homes. Peace and Freedom. When I downloaded the photos, I thought “why doesn’t my husband tell me to STOP!” Although I don’t think all peace symbols are equal, and I don’t buy every one I see, I didn’t realize how many I have. But then, could there ever be enough PEACE?
Some of my collection of symbols…
Another reason I suppose my husband doesn’t complain is (first of all he’s so not a complainer, and second of all) because he has a collection or two of his own.
Jeff’s collection – Freedom…

F IS FOR FFFLAG!
Having been a teacher, I don’t know why it took me so long to join in the FrizzText A-Z Photo Challenge. Of course I didn’t graduate college and become a teacher til I was 51. Now if that doesn’t make me a procrastinator! So, as is my M.O., I’m late and coming in on the F’s and I’m not sure I’ll make it to all the challenges (also my M.O), but here’s my FFF’s – and I know I’m being obvious, but I’m coming in with FLAG!
This beautiful property down the road a piece from our shore house is flanked with miniature flags. Then, last night, we were taken by surprise when we went into town back home, and they were holding a National Nite Out in Collingswood. The flag was not so miniature there. Appropo though. No?
Well, that was FUN! Now, make your way over to FrizzText blog by clicking here and see more of his challenge. And for an extra treat, you can listen to Frizz and his magical guitar on SoundCloud while you’re perusing.
