Celebrations and New Beginnings

Yesterday was a day to celebrate freedom and independence in the US.  We joined the tradition of many families across the nation as we had a cook out.  My son was the main chef for the day.

One of the things he created was this fun drink dispenser made out of a real watermelon.  He filled it with a refreshing concoction he made with fresh watermelon juice.  I LOVE watermelon!  He knows the way to his mama's heart.  It was a great day.  The weather brought us tropical humidity and the air was sultry.  But we decided to choose to ignore it and just have fun anyway.  We had the cookout on our huge covered front porch.   I like to call it the veranda, just for the drama and fun of it.   Everybody needs a little drama in their life.

And on the subject of celebrating freedom and independence, I'd like to introduce you to a new Etsy shop KAporcelainware.  This shop specializes in earrings made exclusively in porcelain.  Each unique earring is crafted by hand from the wet porcelain clay to the actual assemblage with the wire findings.

 KAporcelainware  is the creation of Kate and Allison.  Kate is my lovely, bright, and talented daughter.  (Yes, I guess I'm a bit prejudiced here.)  And Allison is her very gifted and innovative friend.  Together they have created this colorful and inviting shop.  I hope you will take a moment to stop by and look around.  Maybe even order some earrings in the color you need for that new outfit you just bought!

It's so hot here and I'm drooling over that watermelon drink. Best of luck to your daughter Kate and Allison - I'm going to visit their shop and give them a heart right now :>)
