Americana

~ Americana ~

Totally hooked on it....yep, totally!

There is just something about the colors of the American Flag used in everyday items that is so comforting and fills me with pride. There is also something comforting about our weekly gathering at Julia's Friday blog party ~ Hooked On Fridays...that just warms my American heart!

Take a peek and see if you agree ~
Any ol' thing that is red~white~and~blue celebrates Americana in my book...

Comforting...

Of course the good old stars and stripes warm my heart the most~est...
I too would wear this Americana checkerboard bow of cha~cha~ness
all weekend long if I had shoes to match...

Enjoy all of the interesting finds over at Hooked on Houses...
thank you Julia for kicking off our weekend in the fun~est way!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend ~ God Bless the brave men and woman

that have given their lives for us all.

Thank You.

Smiles ~ Ramona
