The cocktail table in the great room got a simple little change over the weekend. I removed a large metal basket filled with magazines and replaced it with a glass tray and a few random accessories that I gleaned from here and there around the house. All of this gleaming glass on the table really lets the pattern of the rug show through.
I like using this trio of glass candle holders on top of the table and often fill the containers with dried flowers, shells, or holiday items. This time, they stayed empty. ( I think I was being a little lazy…)
Talk about simplicity…. I began by topping two colorfully bound school textbooks with a small cloche filled with wine corks. I then used a pot of variegated greenery for some additional contrast. The cupcake cloche was filled with a few shells and rolled up sheets of music tied with ribbon completed the display on the tray.
Pretty sea shells…………….
I’m hoping that this little guy stays alive at least through the summer. His pretty little leaves go so limp when I forget to water him. I’m really trying to be more attentive to all my houseplants and I am sure hoping that this brown thumb of mine won’t get the best of me!
I’ve been using Windows Live Writer to post for almost two years while using Windows XP on my old computer. When the program loaded onto my new computer, which has Windows 7, it automatically loaded the newer version. It took me a few posts to get used to it, but now that I know where everything is, I really like it. But lately I’ve been having some crazy issues. Sometimes, when I type, it turns out backwards! Sometimes, everything freezes and eventually shuts down. In addition, I sometimes get an error message that says it can’t publish because of an internal server error.
AAAGGGHHHH…. Has anyone else using Writer experienced anything like this? This is a bit aggravating, so I’m hoping this is just a temporary glitch in the system, because I don’t plan on ever going back to using Blogger to post. Please let me know if you’ve experienced anything weird like this!
