Happy 4th of July, and some other goodies!

Hello everybody!  I added some photos here of interest to me, and maybe you as well.  I have learned this pretty way of addressing envelopes to mail, from an Instagrammer, called Devoted Diarist.  She has a different sort of lettering on hers, but really, you can use your own normal handwriting, just making it larger, and colorful, and adding more element on the envelope.  I use pretty stamps, and a star rubber stamp and added stars all over for an Independence Day feel.
 This cute lamp was hanging from the ceiling in a super amazing donut shop (where I only had an iced coffee, BTW, since I am following a low carb diet these days).  It is called Rhino Donuts in Boca Raton, Florida.  They have the most unique, and amazing looking donuts I've ever seen.  Isn't this lamp shade just so cute???  I kind of just want one over my dining room table, honestly!
 Doozey having just given me a high five!  She sends her love to all doggies out there!!!
 Carla asked if I had made just those grocery store place mat travelers journals from my last post, and I have also just made two more in the small field notes size, out of leather.  The one with a lime green stretchy cord is mine, and the one with tan cord I made for my brother to use at work.  He was previously using a small notebook with a coil binding, but it was hard to slide it on and out of his pant pocket.  So far he has reported liking the one I made.  YAY!  I really enjoy making travelers journals, and plan to make one more for my sister and sister-in-law.

This one is mine:

 This is the tan cord that went to my brother:
Hope everyone has or had a nice Fourth of July.  We are going to my sons house, and the fireworks go off right across the waterway.  It will be fun to spend time with all 4 grandkids.

XOXO!  Julie

I hope Doozy didn't have any ill affects of the fireworks. Annie didn't like them. I think she gets worse every year. Of course the fireworks in our neighborhood is worse every year.
Love your journals.

Fun lettering. I need to write more letters and I may give that a try. The lamp shade is great . . . as is Doozey and your journals! :)

Hi Julie! Hi Doozey! (Sophie and Hoover say hi too)

Thanks for the info! You really create and find some of the neatest stuff! Love your pictures!

Our post office is small but all the mail is sent to Des Moines to be sorted and sent out. (Even if it goes right back to our town.) I think they would complain if we got fancy. But yours look really cool!

It is thundering here and raining some. We need to soak up the cooler temp because the rest of the week is supposed to be mid to upper 90's.

Have a great week!
