A thoughtful friend ~ and free images for you!

Blogger has been very bad tonight!! I keep getting a message from internet explorer when I try to view my blog but have seen that many of you are having the same problem so hopefully they will get this worked out.
Oh well, at least I can post!!

UPDATE: I finally researched in the Blogger groups and it seems a counter link that I had on my blog from SITEMETER was causing this glitch. I've removed it and it seems to be fine now!!

UPDATE ON MY UPDATE: I've added SITEMETER back to my blog layout to count my visitors and now all seems to be working great, yaaaaaaay!!

I have to share something with you. A friend of mine that I have known for about thirty years now, is a flight attendant. She flies a lot of international flights and gets to shop at some wonderful places. Judy has an incredible knack for getting the BEST prices and finding the most amazing things. Well, she returned to Atlanta and brought me a little gift . . . a thoughtful, "I know she will just love this" gift. And she was SO right!!!!

This small book is precious!! The plates in it are just beautiful . . . I had to scan a few to give you. The colors didn't turn out quite as good as I wanted but maybe you can use these in your artwork!

Oh Judy, thank you so very much ~ you are always so thoughtful. I can't believe that there you were in a little shop in England and you thought of me and how I would love this. I will treasure it always!!

(Remember to click to enlarge and then right click to save to your computer!)

I hope you all have a great Saturday!!!

xxoo, Dawn

Good Morning,Dawn...
I thought of you when I was in a little shop in Newburgh yesterday. They had lots of 'nesty goodness' there. Blogger has been awful since last night. I truly thought I had a computer virus or something. After scanning and checking, I finally downloaded a Mozilla Firefox browser. It seems to be working.

Have a great weekend!

I've been going down through my blog roll and have only been able to visit four or five blogs. I can't access my own. Have tried doing some research and have come up empty-handed. You're saying that site meter is causing the problem? Shoot! I love sitemeter.

How odd, I was having troubles viewing my blog and other blogger blogs last night and this morning, too! Then all of a sudden it cleared up. I have sitemeter, too. It all seems to be working now. It's good to be back on the blog scene.

I had the same problem last evening!
I could not access my blog and kept getting the "operation aborted" message. However, this morning everything seems to be find.

That beautiful book is just perfect for you!

Apparantly some blogs were marked as "spam"... how does that happen? I could go to mine, but I wanted to browse. None of my favorites were opening for me. I even did a computer checkup, updated my browser, and thought about taking a hammer to my PC.

Ok enough grousing... I love the pictures! What a sweet friend to bring you such a gift. Thank you so much for sharig your gift with us!
