send a ball.

I don't know about you guys, but I love the show "Shark Tank"! They had two ladies come on to present their idea and I thought it was a very neat concept and just had to share.

Send a Ball!

Send a Ball is a family owned business based out of chicago that ships bouncy balls to anyone you wish. Just select a theme off their website and they take care of the shipping for you. 

They ship the ball fully inflated, so the person on the other end will have a bouncy surprise waiting for them in their mailbox!

stamps: summer harvest

Image from:

Every summer, some of America's favorite foods are in season. The U.S. Postal Service® celebrates a few of those favorites with four new stamps. Vintage produce advertising, including 19th-and early20th- century crate labels, seed packets and catalogs inspired these stamp designs. 

After America's railroads linked the East and West Coasts in the 1870's growers in agricultural areas could ship their products to locations across the country. To distinguish their wares from other producers, growers commissioned special crate labels from printing houses that employed some of the day's best graphic artists. The artists created designs that featured clever slogans and unusual styles, though the art did not necessarily relate to the produce inside.

Summer Harvest will be issued in a booklet format as Forever® stamps.
