I did mention that I would be back with a second post and something I support every year.
I always look at the paper poppies and think...
it has worked for years and costs need to be kept low
but I would like to give it my own stamp of respect.
So yep, I will still be donating this year as always
however instead I shall be wearing this;
My very own little contribution, a felt poppy all hand stitched and beaded then finished on the back with a brass pin.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
I'd love to know what you think?
