Most of us have either received or know someone who has been presented with a “loving hands from home” garment created by their aunt, mother or grandmother.

We were astonished to see these innovative items constructed from simple threads. • Knitted Cactus: No need to fret if you do not possess a green thumb.

Trek Across Tennessee

Tennessee has more to offer than country music.  Sure, it’s famed for the Grand Ole Opry.  Just as there’s more than 10 state songs, there’s dizzying array of attractions packed into this powerhouse of state-and they don’t even boast a coastline.  Let’s waltz around Tennessee in some great shoes. You don’t have to board a plane to Greece to visit the Parthenon.  Just jaunt to Nashville.  An exact replica of its Greek forerunner, Nashville’s houses the largest indoor sculpture in the world, the towering Olympian Athena, patroness of wisdom and war.  Visit Nashville, the Athens of the South, in shoes fit for a goddess.
