Not one,not two,but three lovely things

This post is very self congratulatory so if it makes you feel nauseous skip it! (I apologise I've interfered with the precious html so these pics won't click)

I was getting a lot of 'favouriting' on ETSY so I had a root through the treasury to see why and I found that I had pieces in two treasuries so this is to say thank you to Terri and to Grace Napoleon Etsy can be a lonely place, so its nice to get a few more visitors now and then.

Even just the browsers and lurkers.
Then yesterday when I was flickring look what I found attached to one of my very old photographs.
I never know whether I should be pleased or affronted when this happens, but after I had clicked the link to the blog I was absolutely delighted and felt a bit weepy.
Its amazing how all sorts of people look at pictures on flickr and a young woman with a very good business head, who could be my daughter if I had one, is interested enough in my work, as different as it is from her own, to write in such glowing terms. So thank you Urban Threads, you've made an old (ish) woman very happy. (You can click on 'urban threads' but will have to scroll down the page to find the bit about me)

While I'm at the Oscar type speechifying, thank you to everyone who reads this blog for all your lovely and encouraging comments. Corny as it is they mean a lot to me. So don't just lurk, say hello.

One other fun thing. I decided to have look at who else is blogging in my area and I found Grumpy Old Mum She lists her interests as 'moaning, jigsaws and finding new swear words'.
Unfortunately it seems to have been abandoned. I wish she'd start it up again. It makes me laugh. Maybe you just have to be from Lancashire. There are only 5 posts and no pictures. The cutlery post is my favourite.

This is the negative bit and I'm thinking twice about saying it and I may even delete it,

Well I did delete it because I don't want to make enemies...but it refers to playlists.
Any thoughts on playlists anyone?

  • 3 pieces of information : My posts are not showing up in google reader again. What should I do? Any ideas? And thank you to people who have still managed to find them and commented.
  • I've been told by Victoria that the top treasury also appeared on ETSY front page ..wooooo! At last!
  • If you want to know the gist of my feelings on playlists read the comment from 'Wabbit'. She too has jumped out of her skin at unexpected heavy metal!
  • Further update: Does this make ME a Grumpy Old Mum? I would just like it if the control panel for the music was easy to find, thats all.
