Classic Urn Planter

My mother bought 2 of these urns and liked them so much she bought 2 more. They are made of heavy plastic and look perfect. They are lightweight and sturdy. The planters come in 2 parts that are a breeze to put together. There are two drainage hole that can be drilled out. I just tapped a screw driver and they came right out.

They are made in the USA and the dimensions are 19″ x 19″





The Blue Tattoo: The Life of Olive Oatman

Olive Oatman was a 14 year old (some say 13) traveling west in 1851 when Southwest Indians attacked her family’s wagon train in Arizona (then Mexico), capturing Olive and her seven-year-old sister Mary Ann. The rest of the Oatman family except her brother, Lorenze, was killed in the massacre. He was left for dead near Gila Bend and managed to return to the remainder of the party the Oatmans had left behind in Maricopa Wells.

The girls lived with their captors for a year, then were traded to the Mohave, who raised them. Mary Ann died, and Olive was ransomed back to the whites in 1856, wearing a blue chin tattoo. She became a celebrity in her day, embarking on a lecture tour promoting a book that Re. Royal R. Stratton wrote about her ordeal, The Captivity of the Oatman Girls. Newly published, The Blue Tattoo: The Life of Olive Oatman, is the first scholarly biography of Olive Oatman. It debunks a number of myths that have circulated about her over the past century and a half.





First the Thunder

First the Thunder is the first book I have read by Randall Silvis and I am glad I did. This book is about three brothers, their families, problems and secrets. Secrets you may not believe. This thought provoking thriller was a great read. The twists and turns will keep you on your toes all the way to the end.
