Colorida Hammock Blanket

Colorida Hammock Blanket The idea for this blanket started in my mind several years ago while I was laying on my hammock.  I love to lay on my hammock in the shade in my backyard on a summer afternoon.  We live near some woods that is full of wildlife. It is very relaxing to lay down while looking up at the trees and listen to the birds sing.  My first hammock was made out of knotted rope and it was[Read more]

Seeing an American flag flying with its stars and stripes reminds me of our precious freedoms and how they began and remain at a great cost to many families.  Seeing a yard decorated with red, white and blue ribbons and buntings  encourages my patriotism and pride in our country.  And hearing[Read more]
