I took Tree to Dreamland Palace, a German restaurant housed in a building from 1875.  Over the years it has been a stage coach stop, general store, tavern, and dance hall.  The current owners have been operating a restaurant there since 1990.


She asked me to remind her to sign one of her 8x10 glossies and send it in so she can be on the celebrity wall.


She tried to get this lion to play, but he wasn't having any of it.  He just looked to the side with disdain (you know how cats are).


Here she is on the corner of the bar.  Poor Tree wasn't having much luck with making friends that day.  She thought Mr. Dillinger looked clean cut and nice in his suit, but I convinced her to keep looking around for someone else to talk to.


Finally!  Tree found this friendly cow hanging out in the gift shop.  They exchanged pleasantries for a bit before we left.

Curiousfae, we were on the same wavelength with the daylillies!  Instead of it being too dry, though, we got a ton of rain.  Several local fireworks displays were cancelled due to rain, so unfortunately Tree didn't get to experience much in the way of 4th of July celebrations.

Here she is smelling a yellow lily.  I think she was a little disappointed they aren't more fragrant.


It's hard to tell where Tree's hair stops and the orange lily starts.


Here she is with my favorite maroon lily.  This was bought on end of season clearance at KMart many years ago, and I wasn't even sure it would make it.  It turned out to be one of my favorite colors and the most prolific.

Tree and I were vending at the Heart Of America festival last weekend in Kansas City.  She got to meet Egyptian dancers Aziza and Raqia Hassan, as well as Chinese dancer Samia Du.


Lebanese Simon let her sit atop his drum.


She even got a kiss from the contest winner (while Miss Congeniality giggled in the background)!

Oh, Baranof is so cute in that tie!

Where is the Hello Kitty exhibit?  I remember getting my first HK colored pencils in the 70's and have loved her ever since.

Shrimps and octos and bears - oh my!  I know what you mean about getting your LV in with animals.  I got a picture of Tree with some foxes, but by that I mean her hair was very blurry in the corner. Smiley

I spent the weekend demonstrating mosaics at an art fair.  I belong to a mosaic group that meets once a month at an open art workshop, and we made a bench top in their tent.  Tree helped quite a bit, and here she is with the finished top.


A girl has to have a little fun, though, so we visited some of the other tents.  The weaver's guild taught Tree to use a loom.  Isn't she doing a great job keeping up with the pattern?


We were both gobsmacked by this 3D wooden piece.  It's made from plywood bits, and the artist took care to make sure all of the lines matched.

A 100 mile yard sale is held every Memorial Day weekend down Missouri Highway 25 from Jackson to Kennett.  This year it was a rained-out bust.  Sad  At one point the rain was so heavy we got 3 inches in two hours.  We were more fortunate than others because we had the tent, but we still would have preferred to see the sun!

I haven't had any luck getting a picture of Tree with a bluebird, but I did manage to get one of her watching deer in my back yard.


Saturday we went to a friend's house to play with clay.  We'll go back later to glaze them, but these pieces will be included in future mosaics.


She got a little restless, so I let her play on some of Pat's grandkids' toys.  Here she is enjoying a pogo stick.

Happy belated birthday, Phoenixfire!

We're hockey fans, and the Blues haven't made it this far in the playoffs in about 15 years.  I made Tree a dress so she can watch the games in appropriate attire.  Running back to the TV now...

I took Tree to a document museum to see the personal papers of John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Abigail Adams.  Naturally the battery in my camera was dead, so I didn't get any photos. Sad  They are switching the exhibit this week to the presidents of the Continental Congress, so I'll try again.

I was able to take her for lunch to Crown Candy Kitchen, a St. Louis favorite since 1913.  In addition to making candy they serve sandwiches, shakes, malts, and ice cream desserts.  Here's Tree with our bacon sandwich and chocolate shake.


I hand quilt on Wednesdays, and this week I brought Tree along.  I let her borrow a thimble, and I made sure she only used the safety scissors.

I took Tree to Madison, WI last weekend.  We were in town less than 24 hours and only to vend, so unfortunately she didn't get to see much more than where we were working.  She did do some modeling work for me, and she liked hanging out in the atrium.  I was glad she has bright hair or I might not have seen her!
