Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

I’m hoping that all veterans will get shown the respect they deserve.  Many have had to endure horrible experiences, and we really have no idea the pain they have suffered.


My own family has served. First there was my Uncle Felix, who served during WWII, my older brother Martin served in the Navy right after graduating from high school back in, I  believe 1959 and luckily there wasn’t a war at that time  My brother Ernie, who is a year older than I, was drafted during the Vietnam War  back in 1966. Those were frightening times for all of us.

God bless all the veterans!


I didn’t  have anything to use as a background so I made a red, white and blue pinwheel block. Being that I am not a traditional quilter,  I wasn’t sure if it would turn out. Well it did and might try making some more blocks.

Enjoy your day veterans and be proud!♥♥♥♥


Growing up in the Vietnam War era made me realize what it means for someone you know to serve our country.  It was a time of being drafted into service, a time of draft dodgers, a time of anger, and fear.  We as young high school kids didn’t really understand why this was happening. Many friends went to war, some came back and some didn’t. Some returned and faced many emotional problems.  So we know all the fears and anxiety of todays service men.  Show them appreciation.

Just doing simple things can make Veterans feel appreciated.

1.Have your own little parade with your children doing the honors.

2. Have a special place where they can relax.


3. A little flag showing respect for our country.


Simple things are the best.  It doesn’t take much to do something for them, after all they have offered their lives for our freedom and rights.
