“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” -Mary, The Secret Garden
As you may have noticed, the site has changed dramatically since yesterday. I have a restless soul — what can I say? My attempts to change the world occasionally frustrate me and I then suffer from a creative control-freak meltdown. Post-meltdown, it is nice to bob about in a sea of calm for about twenty-four hours. Thus, I dug out some tranquil and inspiring photos from last year’s spring trip to Callaway Gardens. If you click on the picture below, it will take you to the slideshow and you can cruise your way into inner peace.
Here’s a brief walk-through of the site and it’s changes:
The pictures in the sidebar are actually links which will take you either down memory lane (for giggles) or show you step-by-step instructions (with LOTS of pictures) on how to can/preserve, make your own boiling water canner, stir up your own soap, build a guinea house, and more. I even threw in a little page about us. You may need to download Mozilla Firefox to see all the pictures (click here). Feel free to ask questions about any of this and do tell me if something is not working or you find it deliciously fun. Of course, there is a lot more to bring over from the old site and many more ideas swimming around in this cluttered & dusty brain. You may also comment on any of the posts from days gone by — I don’t mind. In fact, your comments thrill me to no end.
Ah, yes. Another giveaway! Why not? I’m feeling mightily generous these days. Here’s the deal:
Create a witty, snarky, descriptive caption/title for the photo below and we’ll run a vote on the top three. Winner gets a packet of seeds from (you guessed it) Seeds of Change. Give it your best shot!
While you are thinking of fabulous titles/captions — why not check out two of my blog picks for the week and drop them a line!
