Happy Saint Patty's Day...

It is a lovely, sunny day here in S.E. VA...My older daughter and I take turns preparing a traditional St. Patty's Day fare for our family...I am working our shoppe today so she is doing the honors:)

Wishing you a great day...lots of love and happiness...

~Gail who got a nice "pinch" at the shoppe for forgetting her greens:)

Bear with me, I've added a 3-song playlist...:)

When I tackle something new in cyberworld, I try to think of my skills as a fiber artist and stitcher, etc. and how many folks can not even sew on a button and how I know nothing in their fields and I know we all contribute and make up the whole; but I am just amazed at how paying attention and applying can work  pure magic here because the designers have done so much before we tackle it...bless them:)

I simply emailed a blogger and she graciously wrote me simple how-to's that seemed to work and I thank you so much ~Pamela~ you are a special lady to even have sent me a reply:) I truly appreciate your help.

It does seem to me that if a song is playing on Playlist that if one chooses to click on a photo to enlarge it or to move to an older post that the PlayList song should continue and NOT stopping and starting each time!  Well, that said, I only have two songs selected....just warning you   lol   most of us are pretty patient here in blogland it seems. There are so many, many wonderful talented ladies who do it all and make it seem so effortless   BUT  when starting out it is ever frightening to a non-techi type person.

Most folks also know, I think, if they don't like a Playlist song or any of it they can scroll to bottom of the page and hit the STOP []  :)

Thanks for visiting and hoping the music doesn't turn you off:(

~Gail forever learning and happy to be a Blogger3

What a Beautiful Day it is...

It is so pretty here today...I ran home to bake a cake for a homecoming and while browsing blogs I follow found this very generous Offer...I probably have all of them, but maybe one of "you" would be interested Tinkerthroughtime :)

My Butter Poundcake is ready to take out of the oven...

This cake I made from one of my most favorite books...
A Place Called SweetApple  by Celestine Sibley.
I weep when I read this wonderful little book..."Tine" as her family and co-workers at The Atlanta Journal fondly called her, just wrote from her heart...she is gone now...I do have an official letter from her re: Irish Lace Marigolds...
Well, as you can see, I had to have a slice   lol 
Gotta run back to our shoppe for about an hour, we close at 5:00 .
Wish you could share the cake...hope you might look for the book in your library...filled with recipes and nostalgia.
