Give 48 hours to Larry! Was this a HOAX??

Click the link to read about Larry, and learn how you can help!

48 for Larry
(this link has been deactivate)

Indie sellers united to help a fellow artisan. Funny how people disappear once they have a pocket full of other people's cash. Live and learn, I guess.

Some bidders never even received their items because the donors had no idea who to send them to. The invoices went out, people paid, and Larry disappeared.

The veiw from my backdoor....

As most of you know, my posts are usually rants of driving through city traffic. I absolutely hate it. And if it wasn't for the beautiful area where I live, I'd move closer to work. But I'm not a city slicker, I'm a country gal.

And, as I sat under my grape covered pergola today, with the cat at my feet, listening to the birds chip I thought I'd give you a peek at my little slice of heaven in this world I call hell. This is what makes it all worth while. (click the pics to enlarge, and then hit your back button)

This is the view from my back door. I've always loved grape vines, and now I have my own.

A peek under my pergola.

My coffee cup from my dad. We live in Wisconsin. He was supposed to go to Florida on vacation, but instead he got to have quadruple bypass surgery. Yet he still managed to get me my coffee cup. We're both fanatics about our coffee :)

This is supposed to be where the pool goes. However, hubby's hours were cut at work, and our last pool finally blew it's last leak. I still have hope for a new pool, though. Weeds are going today, and the tarp is going back down.

Our backyard, garden and field.

Behind the house. The old chicken coup will someday be torn down and my new studio will be there. I had a hard time saying goodbye to the daisies. But today they will be mowed down :(

Past the yard, into one of our fields.

Beyond the garden. That huge tree to the right is my beautiful willow. It basically blocks out all light, as you can see. But it's gorgeous.

I love bugs! Seriously, what a cute butterfly ;)

You wanna know what widget wars are? Well, just read on and you'll find out! The below post is from Blockhead Radio's Blog:

Here at BHR we are all about fun and giveaways. So every month we are going to be doing a new round of World of Widgets. For every place that you post a BHR widget you get one entry. We have a lot of different ones to choose from from BHR widgets to Stalker Widgets. All of the widgets that on our promote page are usable. Just go there and copy and paste the code of the widget you want. Place it in your AF studio, blog, site, etc and come back here and put the link in the comments. You get one entry for every place that has the widget up. We will be out checking through out the month. At the end of the month we will use to pick the winner. Rounds run till the end of the month and the winner is announced on the 5th of the following month. Every month starts a new round. So, if you don't win this month just put the link in the comments on the next round and be entered again.

Now, I know you're used to hearing me complain on this blog, so I won't disappoint you! If I could only get their station to tune in on my work computer, but I CAN'T!! GRRRR!!
