Appealing mailbox

In November 2009 we finally purchased our first home. It is a nice little house with a backyard for our children to play in. It also has a two car garage that had not converted into a room of some sort. My husband and I do not like houses with garage conversions. One of the things that I also like about the house is that the mailbox is exactly how I like it to be. I have always liked residential mailboxes that are set in bricks. I like mailboxes that are nice and elegant looking. The mailbox does not have to match the color of the house, but as it goes with house I am great with that.

If I had to choose a different style of residential mailbox or even a commercial mailbox I would choose one of the Gaines classic column mailboxes. The Gaines mailbox looks very durable made of aluminum and polished brass. Not only is it durable but it also adds timeless elegance and sophistication to structure.

If you are in the market to get or upgrade your mailbox get one that looks nice and a little curb appeal so that people will want to give your house a second look and so that your visitors will find your hose more easily the next time they visit.

If ever I am driving around in your neighborhood I hope to see a mailbox with such elegance and style that I will have to stop and admire it.

Getting a good education can keep us out of financial difficulties

In this fast paced highly technical world of ours a good education is almost essential for success. Yes some individuals are able to get by without it, but what are the chances that one of us will be that lucky. The chances are very slim to nil. So if we want to be able to care for ourselves and our families the best that we can then we need to get the education that we can. Whether it be online like Walden University or actually sitting at a desk and listening to a lecture or something else as long as it provides the knowledge that can get us to the top then it is good no mater what.

This goes for mothers as well. You never know what is going to happen to your spouse. He could become a vegetable because of illness or injury at work or even worse. Then where will you and family be if you can not provide for them. Up the creek without a paddle that is for sure. So take some time and get a good education now while you still have time. If nothing else just to set a good example for your l…

Valiant Watercolor Professional Quality Pen Set 20 Color Soft Flexible Tip. Perfect for Children's Coloring Books Manga Caligraphy Lettering. 100% Non-Toxic and Safe.

One of the things that I love to do aside from my photography is a watercolor painting. I love how watercolor gives life to a simple image. Here is an example of an image that I painted. A watermelon. I painted this image using a watercolor brush pen. This pen has a flexible nylon brush tip which makes it possible to create fine, medium, and bold strokes. How I achieved the fading color in my watercolor paint? I used a refillable blending brush pen that comes with the watercolor brush pens that I used. I get so excited when I see the watercolor effect of these pens. They are so easy to use.  



And when I need to unwind from my day to day activities. I will sit for a few minutes and enjoy the color of these watercolor brush pens using a coloring book that has beautiful and inspirational quotes.
