Technology, Don't You Love It?...Sometimes!

Good Gosh! After literally almost two weeks of internet, email and website problems...which are STILL NOT fixed, I'm able to get on using my netbook...which is VERY limited! I can't BEGIN to explain the procedures that I have to go throught just to get pictures up! Please bear with me!

When technology is "down for the count" you don't realize just how much you miss it. Imagine back in the late 80's-early 90's saying..."Wait a minute gotta answer my cell." what did we do then, run to the nearest corded phone or ...remember these things...a PHONE BOOTH!

Lately, when I have the time, I REALLY try to make time, I do!,we started watching TCM Turner Classic Movies, no joke, we really like watching them...of course after Ice Road Truckers (seriously, YUCK! sorry Mark) I find myself wondering what would they think of a cellphone or computer? Gone with The Wind was on again the other night...scene: wagon in middle of burning town falling down around them, change the script to todays standards..."Here Scarlet,got a few bars left, call Rhett and get us out of this inferno!" while Mark is saying (very loudly might I add with excitement like we can reach in and grab it) "Check-out that table in the background!"

Sometimes I long for the days when things weren't so complicated, when you actually talked, wrote by snail mail and even visited a friend for the afternoon.

Well, talk about finding time, I've been so busy getting ready for my upcoming 3 day show that I need a 28hr day instead of 24! I would like to share with you some of my goodies that i will be offering, I've been hard at work!

Here's a bench that me and Mark made from a twin headboard and footboard...Love the fluffy cushion!

One of my favorite things to create are broken china mosaics. Here's a pie crust tilt top table that my mom found at a yardsale for $5, hopefully it looks like a lot more now!

Some, not pink, but shabby autumn anyways, my version of a pumpkin with a little bling!

with all the problems happening with my internet and email, I hope to get back on for Pink Saturday, it's been awhile! Hope everyone has a wonderfull fall day! I love this time of year...pretty leaves falling from the trees and cooler weather!

Missed Pink Saturday AGAIN...So Very Busy!

I can't BELIEVE that I missed the deadline for Pink Saturday AGAIN! ) :

I'm so very sorry for being "away" from bloggerville the past week or two...I WILL make it up to you next week, I promise!

I think I need to move my bedroom into my workroom, these past few weeks AND the next few weeks will be VERY busy for me. Don't get me wrong, I really love this time of fall weather on the rise...leaves changing into beautiful fall colors (hate raking them up though!).
Every year I start painting, mosaics and sewing for PHYSICAL shows up until Christmas...right now I'm getting ready for my first Fall show at the Edison Convention Center in North Jersey, it's a THREE day show! whewww!

Here are a few pics of my booth from last year, taken by a cellphone, sorry for the quality!

My hubby and I own our own portable booth, actually, he made it!

Remember this...

Well, here she is all made up with a matching bench that I found and ready for this years show...

Look at all the cottage patch-strip stockings hanging in my workroom waiting for bows...

Not to mention a sea of lovely pretty cottage Harvest pillows...

Remember the birdie condo that I found put at the curb?
I've taken lots of start to almost finish pics, please stop back and visit!

I hope everyone enjoys their Labor Day weekend!
