Hello to anyone who happens to come by!!!
How do you like this solidly CHROME Mercedes I saw today!  WOW!  I'm not sure I would want to see my reflection THAT MUCH!!!  It could be like a fun mirror tho, depending where you stood!  LOL.
 On my walk yesterday we encountered this Mamma and her babies!  So sweet!  The weather has been so nice lately...very sunny, warm, but cool in the shade, and breezy.  It kinda feels like what heaven might be like!
 Saw this poster on another of my walks yesterday.  It is a swing/hanging seat available at Pier 1.  I just think it is so cute, but I would have to hang it inside as it would get covered in mildew here in south Florida, or rot in the humidity, I think.  I sure wouldn't want to chance it!
Here are two travelers notebooks I made out of plastic place mats from the grocery store!  Have you seen the travelers notebooks?  They are so fun, as you insert different types of booklets inside, and they can include things like calendars, planner sheets, expense tracking sheets, coloring book sheets, diet and exercise, etc.  I have gotten involved with a few groups on Facebook, and love seeing what people are making, buying, and selling.  

 Most of them are made of various colors of leather, but some are faux leather, and fabric,
There are elastic cords running up and down inside the spine to slip your inserts into.
                                                            The little one is so adorable!
I am currently trying to make my brother a dark brown leather one, so will let you see it when I'm done.  Waiting for my 2mm elastic cording to get here from Hong Kong!
Here is a pretty cutting from my geranium.  
 And here is a pretty picture of my male Betta after seeing the female...he flares out his fins and tail, and looks so gorgeous for her!  Normally they don't see each other, because it wears him out, and he starts loosing parts of his tail and fins!
 These are just some random photos from my past few weeks.  I hope anyone reading this is doing well.  I miss you, my blogger peeps! Take care!  XOXO!  Julie

That Mercedes is over the top, a bit to glitzy for me. :-)

Those or nice travel books, never heard of them before.

Love your geranium bloom. I don't do well with geraniums for some reason.

Love your little pretty fish, or I should say handsome.

Have a nice weekend ~ FlowerLady

That car is odd looking to me. It looks like a toy. Not something I would like to own. Love your journals. The chair is interesting. So nice to see you here and to see all the projects and interesting sightings in your life.

I love random photos . . . and those notebooks. I have never seen a beta fish do that before - great picture. I love geraniums . . . red ones were my grandmothers favorite. That is one flower I seem to be able to grow.

Hi Julie
I wonder how distracting that chrome is, I would think it would almost blind the people around it. Especially those driving other cars.

The babies look so cute.

I like your travelers notebooks. I've always loved any notebooks and notepads, even as a kid. Made out of plastic place mats. You never know what people can come up with. So are all of the ones you pictured ones that you've made?

I enjoy geraniums also. I bought a full flat to put out. I like that sometimes I can even bring them in and overwinter them. My husband doesn't like their smell but I do.

I don't know anything about fish but that is a very pretty color.

Sophie and Hoover say hi to Doozey.

Have a nice holiday weekend!
