Last month we were thrilled to receive our long awaited poppy. In fact 2 poppies as I had purchased one as a surprise for my parents too. I love the fact mine still has a little mud on it. I've decided not to wash it but now need to find a way to show it off whilst keeping it safe. Any suggestions welcome x
This arriving reminded me of our visit to London last November to see them. Whilst staying with friends we had the chance to see the poppies both in the day & in the dark. The sheer size of this installation generated a range of feelings amongst the crowds as the reality hit that each poppy represented one person, one life.
Maybe it's because I'm a scrapbooker but I really wish there could have been some memorabilia on sale there for visitors to help raise more funds for the charity. I for one would have bought postcards or ariel photos as keepsakes of our visit.
I would your advice on displaying my poppy.
