The last hurrah of winter and the first whisper of spring. March has arrived at last. You truly would not know it here in Maine, but I have to believe it, the calendar says its so………………………………..
My husband gifted me this wonderful Victorian calendar for the holidays….isn’t it sweet? I love how wonderfully clever those Victorians were. The way they decorated was over the top in every way.
I have not posted in a while because I have been quite busy, but I have enjoyed reading so many of your blogs. I am amazed at how many gifted and talented people there are in the blogging world. I look forward to getting to know many of you. The hard part is finding the time to read, comment, and then blog myself. Some days it seems overwhelming. Does anyone else feel that way? I must admit though, it is very satisfying to keep this sometimes daily diary going. As I get more organized, I would like to share some of my collections of “old things” I have found at various haunts throughout Maine. My little treasures I have here and there are precious to me. I notice a lot of you do the same on your blogs and some sell things….that’s pretty neat. The angel sitting next to my calendar is a find of mine. One of her wings are broken but I still love her.
My new addiction lately is changing my blog look. I have seen more blog templates than I care to admit. My husband is teaching me how to Photoshop and suddenly I see flaws in everything! I am thinking it may need a facelift, better lighting, less red eye, more exposure, the color temperature is off, less tint but more saturation. Does the picture need to be cropped or the exposure adjusted? Should I round the corners or leave them square? I guess you get the picture…..or rather idea….maybe you haven’t gotten the picture yet…..because I am so busy trying to “fix” it! Wouldn’t it be great to have a Photoshop for humans? A magical wand that wipes away the wrinkles around the eyes, lightens up those dark circles under them, slenderizes the nose, makes the lips a little fuller, straightens out that neckline, changes the color of the eyes a bit….wouldn’t that be fun? I’d buy it! Oh I am not THAT unhappy with myself but you know what they say….”Old age ain’t for sissies”.
Enjoy your day and thank you all for your blog writings…I thoroughly enjoy reading them and seeing the creativity you have put into them. Of course I cannot gaze too long at them…..Yup….my new addiction kicks in.:):) I will leave here with some photos of my vegetable garden of 2008….
Makes me want to start planting….
