my blog affairs

  tuesday evening of this week in my writing class, taught by Shawn Smucker,
Bryan Allain gave some very useful pointers to create a 'blah to bling' site.
teaching a link was one of them, and...ta-da!...i did it!
coming home from the class, was another VERY helpful tutorial on a blog,
 by Make Mine Beautiful, who promised to do one on a button the next time.
it's been an exciting blog week for me!

a few pieces from my thrifting this week...
my DIL has an angel like this which i admire everytime i see it...
and feeling a little envious, 
i grabbed it...
not really, but i did do a dash!

after seeing Dreamy Whites blues i decided to collect only a few some.
 she is also putting on a fabulous give-away...
her site is beautiful - check it out!

the five inch flower frog was an unexpected bargain and is under a cloche,
holding vintage calling cards.
the cloche, by the way, is one of the glass cheese keepers
that can be picked up at GW but are usually cheaper at yard sales.
yes, indeed, a delightful week in blogland this week!
