New Skills, Stumbling, and a Table


That is what I am doing here every day.

I just told Joe, “ a girl can only learn so many new skills in a day.”

Yesterday I made my first photo collage header. Yay!

Today I put this blog in Minima Stretch.

With the tutorial by Lily Puff Designs.

Thanks bunches Missy.

Below is a photo I linked to White Wednesday at Faded Charm.

First link ever.

I do not think I did that correctly. I sent her a comment and told her.north harris st. s.ville june 2010 054

I have had this vintage twig table for maybe twenty years.  I purchased it at an antique store. Rarely do I buy from antique stores. I just don’t have the budget for them. I have another one that is not white.

Primitive tables are dear to me.

I stumble through this beautiful blog world following so much talent.  I suppose I am absorbing some wonderful tips just by osmosis.

Thanks bunches y’all

grace surrounds us

  13. Woo hoo, welcome to the club of stretched out bloggers! ;-) That sounded just *wrong*, didn't it???

    Your blog looks GREAT, I love the header. Good job!

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  14. What a great photo! Am really appreciating the simplicity of the white twig table and can relate to the overwhelmedness of blogging!!!! We have to hang in there!

  15. Olive, I really like your simple and quaint table setting. I love country and that is so country.

    I know what you mean about stumbling along and learning. I'm still getting my feet wet in this new world of blogging. If it weren't for my son, my husband, and some very sweet blogging friends I've met, I don't think I'd ever have gotten this far.

    Keep it up! You're doing great.


  16. I love that white twig table, too. Looks great.

  17. I love this image!
    it would make a great postcard or invite to a party!!
