I’ll start at the beginning; my parents very kindly gave me their “old” patio set.  I put “old” in quotes […]

Remember my simple blanket rack I shared with you about a month ago?  I love it and it’s absolutely perfect for my family room, but I wanted to try a second blanket rack – a double hanging one – in case there were those of you that wanted more of a display rack than just a storage […]
