Out in the Prairie where the wildflowers grow and the song of the birds like melody flows, there's a peace God bestows that brings joy to the soul...

A happy Memorial Day Sweet friends and family. Just had to take a few pictures of my small flower garden, I just love these blue flowers. I may have to find a place to plant some more.

Sunday we spent a couple hours at the Cedarburg Maxwell Street Days, A large flea Market, it was so crowded and quit warm. I did manage to find a really neat bird mounted on an old candle stick, just love it.
And I had to pick up this strange piece of bird art made from acorns, twigs,driftwood and Milkweed pods. What a different thing, I still not sure why I bought it?? maybe because it was only $3.00. What ever?
It is a conversation piece. HA HA!!!
Keeping our thoughts with all the brave soldiers who fought to keep us free.
Many Hugs, Carol Mae

We need a good Laugh now and then


Last night, my kids and

I were sitting in the living room and I said to them,

'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'

They got up, unplugged the Computer,

and threw out my wine.

They are SO

on my shit list ...

Just had to share this (from my sweet daughter -in-law)
Have a good day all.
Smiles and love, Carol Mae

A beautiful day here in Wisconsin, a really good time to work in my flower garden, of course after I do a little thrifting in the area. Lots of rummage sales going on. A treasure hunting we will go!!!
Some more  free images for your use, as you wish of course.

This is going to be a "ME WEEK" as my husband and friends left last night for the "Lake of the Woods" fishing trip. Oh My what do I do first?? I think I will spend a lot of my time doing Art work and relaxing on my deck watching all the pretty birds.

Hope everyone's weekend is relaxing.
Many a hug, Carol Mae
