The Site Dilemma

There is a hugh bunch of lovely people in cyberland and I'm lucky enough to have some of them leave me very nice comments about what I have posted here. Some just comment and some ask questions and some raise points I would like to expand upon. The problem is how do I know if they will see the answers or the follow-ups that I post in comments?

There are no "contact me' buttons nor do I feel comfortable just going to someone's site and throwing in a random answer/comment.

I would be very glad to hear anyone's comments as to what they do in these circumstances.

And a big thank you to everyone who reads my blog.

Have You Ever Shopped at Second Hand Chic?

Second Hand Chic is a great vintage/2nd hand shop in Salt Lake City, Utah. OK - I'm saying up front, it's owned by my cousin, Kelly and I get the family discount BUT, that said, it's a great place to shop and you NEVER know what you will find. Mind you, I am NOT a second hand shop buyer BUT I found a great item for a Christmas present, a nifty little winter hat which has created envy in the hearts of many of my friends and a belt that Paul needed after losing his to a conveyer belt at an airport. (The belt was nicer than the one he lost so that worked out really well.)

If you are in Salt Lake City, do stop by. it's at 900 East 2006 South. It's open Monday - Saturday 10 to 6. 801-433-0044










Oh, by the way she has the cutest little doggie in town.

Monday Is For Beads

Most Mondays I get together with 3 friends and we work on our beading. Today I finished 2 bangle bracelets in the Russian Spiral pattern.

This was taken one warm summer evening in my garden.

Signs of Spring - Silver Lake Park

These are a few shots taken at Silver Lake Park in Baldwin, New York on Long Island. It's just a small park so one can see the surrounding houses easily. Still, the Signs of Spring are visible: the forsythia has put forth it's yellow flowers and the tree leaf buds are almost ready to pop open.

Uh Oh...

I decided to switch my blog to a Custom Domain and so far, it looks as if this might have been a bad idea.

My followers list disappeared. My blog list disappeared. And I have just realized that  if you click on my Labels, the links aren't working. Did I mention that the links in the Archive don't work either?

I'm hoping that. when the transition is complete, all these functions will come back. In the meantime, I'm going to post this and see if it works.....

Blythe's Goats

I have a niece who is quite taken with goats and also does wonderful pictures. Over the last few years she has done four goat portraits, two in acrylic and, recently, two in pastels.
