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

A Selfish Gal

Banner Haus News and Musings

Well, I've been selfish with me bloggie frens lately. 

I pride myself on being open-handed, and yet I keep quiet about a way I find many of my digital images. Didn't share my method.

Bad donkey!
Use foreign terms fer images when you use Google Image Search. Try "Oblaten," "decoupage," and "Glanzbilder."

Well, I feel better now.

Free Images

Both the photograph and the old "Glanzbilder" will enlarge greatly if you regular-click the image. Then you can save the larger image with a right-click. And remember, any-sized image can be saved with a simple right-click, unless some fiend has attempted to disable right-clicking. But there are ways around that, too!

    Your generosity, my dear Holly, is legendary. You have restored tons of graphics and then offered them free to your humble followers. Not only that, but you have fun giveaways (I got the flail and mini-cookie cutters) and even better, you offer great advice on blogging and Textbroker. I feel like I owe you a lot!
