Allow Me To Introduce Myself

I am a 49 year old legal secretary who is feeling incredibly stupid in my feable endeavor of creating this Blog! I am apparently illiterate in the computer world! It has taken me forever to get this far and it has not been pretty! I have a very PLAIN blogscape thus far! Forget Mr. Linky He is a pipe dream at this point!

I am married to the most wonderful husband in the entire world! He is not my first one (unfortunately)...no, he isn't my second husband either..........(geesh, I am already confessing everything here!) He is LUCKY husband number 3!! And, I might add, the LAST one!

I have two gorgeous sons ages 19 and 16 who are the greatest things I have ever done! Seth is a freshman in college and Cameron is a sophomore in high school. We have three fabulous felines which we adore, and they are older than dirt. Chloe is 13, Sissie is 13, and Simon is 12. My boys always wanted a dog, and I would tell them "when something happens to the cats we will ge a dog." Seth said, "My grandchildren will know Chloe!" He may be right!

My love is decorating and redecorating, and then redecorating some more. I love thrift stores, yard sales, TJ Maxx, Homegoods and Marshalls to name a few. I have ALWAYS got a project going on, and if it involves measurements, or anything that needs to be precise, my DH does that part for me. I am terrible about just "rounding off" and in certain areas, this is not such a good idea. He can do anything, and is very patient with me....mostly.

Well, as I begin this new venture, I hope to share some ideas, get some ideas and make new friends all over! We will see how it goes. I predict much cursing under my breath as I try to make this thing do what I need for it to do with minimal aggravation....not feeling good about it...

A new door opens......it's nice to meet you :)


  1. Welcome. Great back ground. It is hard to figure out at first. If you go to "LAYOUTS "and click it should list "gadgets." If you go to New posts click on the "Picture logo "and it will say "Browse," then click and it will lead you to "a list" ,click on your "Pictures," then you should be able to click on your pictures. Click on a" picture" you want to post then click open and it will be put on the one you clicked" Browse." then do it again for more. If you don't know how to get your pictures off the camera let me know. mishelle

  5. Welcome to blogland!!!

    I think your site looks great, much better than mine did a few months ago when i started.
    And don';t be so hard on yourself, we are all just learning as we go, whether it be computers, or life in general.
    My friend Diane, at Diane Knott's Musings, has been at it for years, and said she is still learning. There are a lot of helpful people out there, just ask and they come to your rescue. And believe, I understand your frustration!! =0)

    OK now, down to business. Tanks for coming by and entering my bird nest giveaway1!
