White Wednesday and a Give-Away!

Having nothing to do with anything else, but ooh-la-la
How embarrassing to be a GH addict. How did this happen? Darling daughter finds it ludicrous. I find it to be so much fun! After not watching for about 12 years or so, to now watching every episode. Do you think it might have ANYTHING to do with this guy? nah........
As I told Sarah today, my Dante beats her Johnny (Zachara) any day!
On to the real post below....
Playing around tonight with the new post editor on blogger, and it definitely loads pictures more efficiently and such, but I have run into so many other issues that I reverted back to old editor. Definitely did not see better "ease of use". I never did figure out how to space between the photos. Of course the night I decided to get an early jump on WW, resulted in me fiddling around with placement on here for hours. I'll figure out the new fangled editor some other day. It's a process, isn't it fellow bloggers? Unless you are really computer savvy, it is like trying to find your umbrella in a closet with a burned out bulb!

It couldn't possibly have anything to do with age. Of course I could be sensitive about it today after spending hours at the mall store trying to pick out my new cell phone. Droid/ no droid, google phone/Iphone if it becomes server choice. Good grief! I caught the 20ish salesgirl doing a few eye-rolls as I asked questions, but as soon as I asked her if she was on commission she became friendlier. Funny thing that...Anyway, I still do not have new phone, not until April it turns out. crazy, silly, OK, Plain STUPID rules.

Came home and out of frustration, I fiddled some more with vignettes.

I haven't changed the hinged drawers in this piece in years, so I cleaned out all the old potpourri and wooden stars and such, scrubbed them out, and then dumped sand into them!

I had some lovely shells stored in the garage, so I hauled them out and tossed them in, and this is how they landed.

Please enjoy all the other WW's hosted by Kathleen of Faded Charm, over there to the left.

That hutch with display drawers is wonderful. It's like a little beach in there.
I know what you mean about technology. I tried hidding from it for years but that didn't help. I still know nothing! but i am better.
I had that problem last night using the new editor way and lost everything. My keyboard was giving me a hard too so it could have been that.
Congrats on the 200th post!

Hi there- Just found your post thru WW and so glad I did. I hear ya w/ the cell phone angst. Going thru the same thing right now - contracts up. Anyway - I spotted the small white iron conservatory in you have on top of the white server. I have the same one~love it and have no idea where I got it. Is it new or cold? Happy WW (um-Thursday)

My gosh Suzan, I could hang out at your house for days. What gorgeous vignettes you put together. The palette in your house is so calming. It is something that I would love to be able to achieve here, but I have a hard time deleting
