I did manage to make a centerpiece the other day, using my galvanized carrier. I first showed you the carrier a few weeks or so ago, that I had an autumnal display in.
I really love this carrier, that I found for just a few bucks at a neighbors yard sale! It's larger than it appears in the photos, and quite heavy, too!
I had intended on getting alot more decorating done yesterday, but I had a major blogging crisis! I had been trying unsuccessfully for months to change my blog's background. I had been doing it correctly, but it never worked! I am so envious of all you ladies who always change the look of your blogs for the seasons! Anyway, the other night I thought I would get brave and change my template. Maybe then I would be able to get a new background, I reasoned! And that is where all of my trouble began!!
The new template totally messed up my blog! My sweet friend Tete even did a couple of blog posts for challenged people (such as myself!) on how to change backgrounds and templates! Well, to make a long story short, every time I made a change yesterday, things got worse, much worse! My dear friend Cindy Adkins came to the rescue! She spent so much time helping me get things straightened around, and even designed my gorgeous new header. Isn't it beautiful? I thought that was just so nice of her!!
So, last night I sat down to my blog, thinking all was well and good. Wrong! I discovered that none of the links on my blog were clickable! None! I couldn't click on anything on my sidebar, non of the links within my blog posts, nothing! Needless to say, I was in tears, and wished that I'd left well enough alone! I somehow managed to get things working. Don't ask me how, my brain was a jumbled, stressed out mess by that time! So, moral of the story is: if you are going to do any major type of changes to your blog, do a test blog first! I should have listened to you, Tete!
So a huge thanks so Cindy and Tete for helping me thru this "meltdown" of mine! You guys are the best!!
