The Happy Tree

It is in my nieghbor’s yard right over the fence. I think I will buy two for my yard. I wish it would keep a flowering bloom all summer but it doesn’t. Soon these gorgeous pink cherry blossoms will fall off. They look like ballarina skirts. Tiny little dancers all over the tree.

Pink Glorious Pink


Really Geraldo? You’re going to blame a hoodie ( Sorry, if you read that before, I left those  words out) for the killing of Trayvon Martin?! I am a 52-year-old white as can be grandmother and I wear hoodies! And no I am not gansta. Oooo I even wear black bandanas. I wear a lot of black and gray, because those are colors that I like.

The shooter was in his car and followed this young man and gunned him down.  You don’t drive after someone and shoot them. You don’t decide to shoot someone because of what they are wearing. You may decide to shoot a person who is coming into your house in an aggravated and uninvited manner showing intent to harm you.

These rings are fun and easy to make and wear.

Give A Helping Hand

Do you know someone who could use a helping hand? Do you know someone who might be suffering from Compasion Fatigue? Maybe you could sit with there loved one for an hour a day or once a week. Buy them some groceries. Cut their grass. Clean their house. Bring them library books or your books that you have read. Send them a pizza.  Any number of things that we might take for granted would be most welcomed and appreciated by them. Look around and see who you could give a helping hand too. You can make the world a better place. You might even prevent someone’s death or suicide. Give it some thought and pass the idea around.

I Won!

A present from Helen’s Adornment’s Blog. Beautiful handmade earrings. Made by Helen of course. They were made as part of a blog hop using beads. She did a great job. Now if you would please, click on over and see the gorgeous glass beads that she makes, they are beautiful and fun. Below is the photo of how she beautifully packaged the earrings that I won and a photo of them. Great spring colors.

Slavery in Mauritania

This is heartbreaking. I saw this on CNN and wanted to share it with anyone who will take the time to read the article. Hopefully the more people who know about this disgusting practice the more that can be done to stop it. I can’t fathom how anyone could do this to another person. Thank goodness one slave master saw the ugly dark evilness of what he had grown up knowing as normal. Now he is working to stop this horrible evil. The article has stunning and heartbreaking photos and reading about the woman whose baby was murdered is so sad that I feel sick to my stomach. Please read this article and pass it on. Maybe if we all work together this evil can be stopped.
