I Bleed Red & White

I saw the title of this post on a “Canada Day” t-shirt this year.  I LOVE it!!  I love my country, and I love celebrating things.  So, long before the first of July I pull out the flags and the red and white.  Not everyone in my family is quite so patriotic.  But we still love each other!  😉

O Canada
Our home and native land
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free.
From far and wide,
O Canada
 We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land, glorious and free,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
See how I made this red dipped cutlery HERE!!

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida - I love your table with the red and white and, oh that view of the pool! It’s been hotter than blazes here (eleven days running of 100 degrees or higher, and now we’ve cooled down to the upper nineties), so I would love a dip in those cool waters!
