My daughter bought a package of gum for me recently because it had a dragon on it. ❤ The gum is named Magic Dragon from a company called Project 7. We wondered what Project 7 was and decided to look it up.
From the Project 7 website:
Project 7 exists to do good around the globe. With the understanding that people are going to buy things, we decided to make things that they’re already purchasing and use them to solve everyday problems around the globe. Simply, we make products that give back to seven areas of need for good around the globe. Join us in spreading good!
The 7 causes chosen by Project 7 are the areas we see the most need in this world. These include: Feeding the Hungry, Healing the Sick, supporting those who Hope for Peace, Housing the Homeless, Quenching Those who Thirst, Teaching them Well, and Saving the Earth.
To find out more visit their Mission section.
Project 7 makes a variety of gum, gummies and even a trail mix. Enjoy trying something new and help a good cause, actually, seven good causes. 🙂
Happy Summer Solstice to all my northern hemisphere friends. I love sitting on the porch in the morning, drinking coffee, listening to the birds and enjoying this peaceful corner of my life. I have developed a love for succulents. Easy to grow and so pretty. There are also a couple of scented geraniums, one lime and the other is has lemon rose scent. A perfect way to enjoy this beautiful summer day.

I found this artist while looking for dragons, but I am sure I have seen his work before in the hundreds of Magic The Gathering cards my kids have all over the house. 🙂
I had a pin pop up on Pinterest showing a man sitting on a carved dragon sculpture. It was amazing but I could not find who the artist was. After searching the internet for a while, I finally hit the right search words and found myself at
Matthew Crabb – Chainsaw Artist Facebook page.
This is the photo that led to the search.
This piece was for the English Open Championship 2015. It took 2nd place.

My mother in law gave me some daylilies that were given to her by a friend when she lived in New Orleans, Louisiana. This was around 1960. She took some of them with her when they moved to Lafayette, Louisiana, then again when they moved to Texas. They are now at my house. Who knows where they may travel next. ❤
This week I was feeling a bit whimsical when I began my search for Dragon Thursday. I decided to look around Youtube and found dragon kites. There are so many. This one is from Photopuppet and is appropriately called A very Cool Dragon Kite
