I'm not an Eastern rose;
I'm just a lil' Western Gal
With freckles on her nose.

HORSEWHIP ME NOW, and A St. Pat's Lovely Lady

Banner Haus News
Let there be no "told-you-so's."

Comments have commenced. Some heartfelt emails have convinced me to just relax a bit and not have my chaps in a knot and to stop worrying about having an "obligation-free bloggie," which was actually rather preying on me olde mind, and just let people leave comments if they like. I never felt like I pushed anyone to comment over at Penniwig's -- at least I hope no one ever felt obliged. Never meant to hurt feelings by turning comments off, either.

The comments were what made Penniwig's interesting, actually. I just sat back and let me olde readers do the work fer me.

Mayhap the Banner Haus readers will do the same! But I'm still a clam and I ain't having a thing to do with yr antics!!!

Comment if ye like, don't if ye don't. Tarnation!

I'm hoping for lots of TWITTERING, actually! Guess a bloggie can have both. 

Old-Time Lore:
Make yr sewing repairs last a long time by running yr length of thread over a little piece of beeswax or paraffin before stitching with it.

Vintage Postcard Image:
St. Patrick's Day painting from the brush of Ellen Clapsaddle, who created many thousands of postcard images during her career. This elegant lady seems to be getting a jump on Easter Bonnet season.

    WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! thank you for the WONDERFUL graphic AND for opening up comments! Have an AWESOME day, m'dear! :)

  • Knitty

    Ahhhh, my life is normal again! :) Of course the down side to this is that I will no longer be able to blame you for being abnormal, something my family seems to think is my usual state. Hmmmm, maybe abnormal = normal in my universe? Now I am all confused and need some chocolate to soothe my furrowed brow. Don't worry though, I'll put the chocolate in my mouth and won't leave streaks on my forehead. I'm not THAT abnormal!
