Today I received this photographs of a carved tree located in South Africa. It is so awesome to me. The faces of the animals speak a thousand words. I want to touch them to see if they are indeed real : )
At 59, and going on another adventure, I feel so good whenever I see something new and amazing. It makes me realize I have so many more adventures to go on and there is enough time to see more. When I hear Corey talk about the flea markets in France, Marita talk so lovingly of her Southern Valley, Mary speak softly of her cottage in Massilon, Ohio (Lillian Gish's birthplace), Jamie speak so generously of family and friends in Southern California, Amy talk of tag sales in Iowa, Pinkie~Denise show us her many fine vintage collections, Betty in Clovis showing us her favorites little shops,
and Constance, enlivening our world with her Floralina's
and purses extrodinare. Take a minute to go to her blog as she is having a party; celebrating her 1 year of blogging!!! Please wear your party hat : )
All of these wonderfully different blogs give me hope I shall make it to all parts of the world and see life through their eyes. The thing I find in the camaraderie with blogger's is the diversity of everyone. I feel so fortunate to have met ladies in Bloglandia that give their heart in open hands : )
Lest, anyone forget, my Friend Phyllis over at
Shabby In The City!!!
Okay, girls/ladies have a marvelous day!!!

  9. That tree is not in southern Africa. it is called the "Tree of Life" and it is at Disney World of Florida.
    It is really not a tree at all.
    It is cool though.
