2 Days In A Row

Well, I admit to shopping at Hobby Lobby 2 days in a row.  I had to go back to buy another cute backpack for a gift.  Of course, several other items made their way into my cart.  I'll only show you one of those items today.
I have always liked Norman Rockwell pictures.  This is a collection of his 'Four Freedoms' series.
 The large sticker tells the story of how Norman Rockwell was inspired by President Franklin Roosevelt's address to Congress on January 6, 1941.  The pictures were printed in the Saturday Evening Post.  Eventually the paintings served as the centerpiece of a massive U.S. war bond drive, raising more than $130 million in sales.

The size is 16X19,  It is all tin.  The price was right.  Marked down to $17.00 from $49.99.  

The 'Four Freedoms' . . .
 Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom From Want and Freedom From Fear.  
I pray these freedoms will never be taken away.
