Bronze stars all over the place

Can someone please tell me what is up with the bronze star decorations that are popping up all of a sudden? Everyone seems to have one. Do you? Does it mean something? Were they all just on sale or something? WHAT?????? It's driving me nuts!

I haven't seen them down here either -- where are you seeing them? They used to make stars for the windows of service families and, at least when I was a kid, different colored stars meant different things (i.e. I think a white star meant that a family member was in service, and a gold star meant one had been killed in action) A 'real' bronze star is, of course, a medal of honor -- that would seem like an odd thing to use as a decoration.

oh, I meant bronze-colored. You know, like metal garden decorations. Maybe I'll try to get a picture of one.

Maybe I am seeing things. I have been quite sleep deprived lately.

There's even a website just for the stars. I think it's just a "country" style decoration like the geese. Remember the geese?

That's hysterical! Are those the stars you are seeing, Jen? They look like they are patterned on the appliques that are used on flags --

Yes! Yes! Those are the ones. Does everyone just need to "create the perfect primitive country rustic setting?" I even witnessed a couple putting one up and admiring it on the side of their house recently. Why does everyone want one? Did someone on "The View" say they were cool or something?

Those stone geese that everyone dressed up. When I lived in Elyria, OH, everyone on the block had one. They'd put rain coats on them when it was raining and Uncle Sam hats on the fourth of July.

They still have geese on my block -and a couple of stone dogs that also get dressed up! We are clearly behind the times -- maybe my neighborhood will catch up with the star trend in a couple of years. This is so sad. I've always loved stars, they are ruining it for me. I might have to get a goose instead. Although I have to admit, the 'perfect primitive country rustic setting' is sort of tempting . . .
