No Computer

Just a quick post to say
that my computer has
been sick since last Thursday
 night. I was hoping to have
it back on Monday, but now
I only hope it will be ready
by this weekend!
I see there are a few
new followers so WELCOME!
I am using my husband's
old computer so I can
check mail, but it is so slow
and I cannot upload pics.

Feeling beauty, not just seeing.

Here is the last page of my little
 Hallmark book from 1978. 
 I am trying to get this in
my you feel is
sometimes more important
than what you can see.

A few little treasures from
our local thrift store.  I am
always on the lookout for
pretty vintage trims.

I still have some swiss chard
plus my sweet little Pansy
enjoying the sun.

I think this is a bluebird...
sorry it isn't clearer.
I don't know if we have
them here in California or not.
I know we have plenty of
blue-jays.....beautiful color, but
very annoying!   :o)

Annoucements-One Day Without Shoes and Giveaway

Tomorrow, April 5th, is the
 One Day Without Shoes Event
started by Tom's Shoes

"TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie says that not having shoes puts kids at a heightened risk of injury, disease and infection. Among the soil-transmitted risks that most can't afford to prevent and treat are:
  • Hookworm: Causes anemia, stunted physical and mental development and, on occasion, congestive heart failure. Affects up to one-fifth of the world's population.
  • Podoconiosis or "mossy foot disease": Causes swelling of the feet and legs due to prolonged exposure to certain types of irritant soil.
  • Chiggers: Bites on the feet and ankles from these mites can cause severe itching and hives.
  • Tetanus: Potentially fatal infectious disease caused by bacteria entering the body through cuts or other open wounds. Causes painful muscle spasms and locked jaw.
In addition, many schools in rural developing nations require students to have shoes to attend schools, so not having shoes is a roadblock to opportunity."
