Etsyblogger's Carnival, May 19 edition

Decoration Day







Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day, a day of remembrance for those who died in our nation's service .









Americans can honor soldiers this day by decorating gravesites and participating in colorful parades.




Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of summer. I’m not sure if this year’s visitor count at the Museum (where I work) will be lower than previous years because of gas prices, but I’m hoping on good consignment sales in the Gift Shop.


Pictured here are a few items from Etsy shops I visited, with Memorial Day in mind….
