A little TRIVIA
June 14 is Flag Day and Family History Day
The act of snapping one's fingers has a name. It is called a "fillip."
I made this post card for a swap friend for "at the beach" days....back in 2009 and had
wrote a saying that I thought up about summer and the ocean... it's a soothing "quote" and appropriate for the summer months starting here in another week...
“It’s hard for one to put into words
why you might be hypnotized by the beach,
the sound of the waves,
and the laughter of children distant in the wind.
Everything about it is refreshing,
regenerating, and almost like therapy...

I really do love making these scrubbies....they are easy and fun to make and make wonderful little gifts...the napkin rings are too...in the little net bag is a flag pin made with pins... what a great "Flag Day" gift to a patriotic friend.
I made several of these and love them, it is a Musical Flag Hanger it is pretty simple I followed this pattern and had fun putting it all together, I changed the stars as I actually was at JoAnns and found little star beads and they worked out perfect!!! Something else I added to my patio...but mine has weathered so I started to make them again... :) I made several for friends and family...probably need to update theirs too???
I hope you have enjoyed my re-posts of my flag hanger. I made way "back in the day" that saying is so popular on the TV shows especially the cop shows, but I kinda like it. :)
