I know I know!

Pictures/previews for this page have been removed due to Designers retiring and stores closing

I will be redoing the blogwear! But first let me share this LO and then clean the house and then maybe I'll get to it ok?


We lived in England for 18 months waaaaaay back in the eighties and visited Warwick Castle on a couple of occasions. Here is one of my favourite photos that we took on one of our trips. I need to still scrap all these England day...

I used a kit by Gypsy Couture called "Love Me Do" for this LO.
The wonderfully worn overly over the picture itself is by Something Blue Studios. I was delighted to accept Lisamarie's (Gypsy Couture) invitation to Guest CT for her for the month of February!
But now I need to go clean the house and next time I'll talk about 'Doll's House' and will have more LO's to share!

Till next time....


hmmm I still need to figure out how to get the whole image to show as it should, without disappearing behind the right hand goodies...until I do...please click on the image to see the full LO

Reading Adventures...

So I finally started reading "Moby Dick" I've been wanting to read it for many years and was quite ready to start it...BUT I was not quite ready for what I found! Yikes!

I'm sure it appeals to some, and I'm sure it could be appreciated, but I'm not going to put myself through that. I can stand long winded and tedious as long as I get a draft of cool fresh water once in a while, but this book doesn't even give you a spplash of cold ocean! It was one loooong yawn, till I got a good way into it...then I flaked out, read the end, and called it a day...enough is enough people!

So I picked up my copy of the Ibsen play "A Doll's House" instead. Much better reading (already!)

If you are interested to read Moby Dick for yourself (you have been warned!) you can find the e-book at Project Gutenberg. (there is even a computer generated audio book available) although the thought of a computer reading Moby Dick is incredibly scary...then again at least the 'puter will feel no pain in the process....ROFLOL

I think it may be a good idea for me to do some additional reading before attempting to read it again. Sparknotes should help me out with that. Sometimes one's just gotta know what you're looking at kwim?

Or maybe I should just watch the movie eh?

My little cyber corner.


A little bit of rambling and a place to share some thoughts, some LO's, pictures...I have no set plan, so we'll just see where this goes!
BTW : The blogwear is all by Kimmi Stewart.
