I will be off Blog for a week or so. We are heading to Ohio to visit friends and relatives.
As much as I love going, I hate the process of getting ready to travel ~ packing, arrangements, etc. It would be so nice to just get in the car and go with no baggage to haul along.
I hope to visit a few great consignment shops while there. There is a wonderful, large flea market in the area that one can always find treasures at. I am hoping to bring some items back that will be tempting for the customers who browse in my consignment shop.
I will visit you from time to time while away, but it is doubtful that I will post anything. I will save that for my return.
Have a joyous 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION and take care.

You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.

A few days ago, I posted a photo of this massive tree trunk because I thought it was interesting and beautiful. Several of you asked what kind of tree it is and asked me to post a picture of the entire tree. As you can see, it is so large I could barely get the whole tree in the picture. I've posted a close-up of the leaves, too. You can click on the photo for a better look. I don't know what kind of tree it is, so if you do, please let me know.
It is a beauty, isn't it?

I looked last night. There are five small, beautiful, perfect, blue eggs in the nest. Momma Bluebird has been spending a lot of time in there sitting and waiting. So, I may have another chance to see the little ones leave their home when the time comes.

I am pretending this is Deborah's swimming pool. I am pretending I am standing in it right now feeling the refreshing cool water. Oh, it feels SO good. Deb, would you mind bringing me a raspberry margarita? I'm all wet and I can't go in the house. You're a doll!
Thanks for the dip, Deb!! You're a lifesaver.

I bought this simply because I thought it was interesting. It is made out of wood and seems to be a dustpan with a wood scraper to push the dirt onto the dustpan.
This old tray with a cardinal on it is in pretty good shape. It was covered with a layer of dirt, but now that it is cleaned up, I think it will look great in my consignment space along with the above items.
