Happy Cactus Monday.....Cactus gift!

Happy Cactus Monday

Isn't this the cutest thing! I got this cute little cactus bell (yes it's a bell) from one of my sons friends Cris. My son Jordan is 24 and still lives at home. He should be going back to college this fall. He already has an AA in Applied Art Design and wants to be a graphic artist. Soooooo, he has the greatest friends that come over like it is their second home. I love it. On Sunday night we all get together and Jordan cooks us all dinner. His favorite with everybody is his chicken rice bowls. Really yummy! We eat dinner and watch whatever is on HBO, Showtime or AMC. When one series ends there is always another that starts. We just finished the first season of A Game of Thrones and now we are watching True Blood. Soon it will be Dexter, Shameless, Walking Dead. We like the weird stuff. So we usually have about 8 or 9 kids and us. It gets pretty crowded so we have chairs all over and TV trays. So Cris is one of the sweet girls that always comes over. We call them the Sunday night crew.

The kids know how I love my succulents and Chris always finds the cutest things. So the other day she said she had a little gift for me. And then pulled this little tinkling bell out of her purse. I just about fell over. I love it! It is about 1 1/4 " tall. Pretty tiny but you could hang it to anything. For now it is hanging from my lamp that sits by my chair in the living room.

I am showing you the back so you might get an idea how to get one. Looks like they have a web site!

So hope everyone is having a great Cactus Monday!

It's Another Beautiful Day!

Wow how similar! Yes we are trying to get him back in college too! He's also been looking for a job for a long time. It's hard.

Yes all succulents lovers like us should have one! LOL

That is just the cutest little thing! I'm with Julie, I think I need one!

You mentioned that you hadn't seen the Palmer Sedum before, if you want, give me your email address and I'll get your address. It's one of my favorites and I'd love to share it with you!

Cute little cactus! Love your taste in TV, by the way. We're catching up on True Blood and Dexter via Netflix. I've heard Game of Thrones is great!

Nice present. Sounds like Jordan has got very nice friends. And your place seems like a nice place to be on Sunday nights.
