Forced to Upgrade!

My precious old computer died last week.  It just went black right in the middle of a project.  I almost cried.  My computer is my bestest friend and all of my online friends live inside.  I was forced to start using my new computer that I got a couple of Christmases ago.  It has Windows 7 and none of my old familiar graphics software will work on 7.  So...I love the smell of new software.  Now finding the time to learn new *stuff* is going to be a problem.  New Photoshop Elements 11 for graphics, new Photoshop Premier for movies, a Dummies book (I love these books) and a new timer.  The timer is to help remind me there is real life going on and I need to limit my computer time.  Oh well, a girl can never have too much software...or shoes!

Bottle Brush Trees

I have always loved the old vintage bottle brush trees, but being frugal (aka cheap) I thought they were too expensive.  I was delighted to find information online about purchasing the green trees and bleaching them.  Fortunately they were on sale at Target online for less than $8.  Submerged in bleach for about 30 minutes creates beautiful vintage bottle brush trees.  I am tickled!!


Now, thanks to Martha Stewart, I can make my own.
It's a good thing!
