Thanks for sharing, Gail!

I love to feature your layouts, using my created elements - send them to me and I will make you famous - not rich... haha!


I want some!

Are these cool, or what? These are some solar lights put out by a company called Allsop - I recently came across them in a magazine. Can't you just see your own patio party graced by the lantern ones? Free shipping too! You can read more about them and order some for me HERE (KIDDING! - bout the ordering part!)


Oh, if I lived in Washington my feet would be begging me to visit one of these parks! Did you know there were such things as parks with Reflexology Paths? What a neat concept! The stones are laid out in different sizes and patterns and you simply toss off your footware and treat your feet to a massage while you walk! Hmmm... this might be a good idea for your own yard, even! You can find out more about the parks which feature Reflexology Paths by clicking HERE

After entering today's historical happenings, I just had to go look up the story of King Ludwig - its actually quite interesting!

King Ludwig II of Bavaria (1845-1886) is remembered for his fairy-tale castles and his patronage of the composer Richard Wagner. Like many of his forefathers, Ludwig had a wildly eccentric temperament, was artistically talented and at times overwhelmed by a melancholia that gradually turned him into a recluse. As a result of his neglecting the affairs of state, he was declared insane in a plot to depose him. Soon afterwards he and his warden were found death in circumstances that remain a mystery to this day.

I won't spoil the rest of it for you - grab a coffee and click HERE to collect your trivia for the day!
