Well, I'm dipping my big toe in and testing the waters...

I've been wanting to set up a blog for a while and am frankly amazed at how easy it's been so far, especially since I'm nearly completely computer illiterate!

What I hope to do here is to share the little things that make life what it is. I have a love for decorating and happily spend time looking for ways to get the pulled-together results I love on a bare-bones budget. I'm also interested in many facets of frugal living - from freebies, bargains and coupons to second-hand treasures and inexpensive meals at home. Although I've learned so much about living well on less over the last many years, I WELCOME any new ideas, resources and creative solutions. I hope this will be an encouraging place to "set for a while", but ultimately, I want this blog to be a place where I can be "real" with you, and where you can be real as well.

I've got a lot to learn, including how to use the bells and whistles on my digital camera. (Baby steps, baby steps.) Be back soon!

YEAH! So glad I can be visiting you on your new blog! Though I'm noooooo expert, I'd be happy to help you out with anything.

Hi Michelle! Welcome to blogland! It takes awhile to get used to things. I just wanted to encourage you on figuring out that digital camera and posting pics.

Well, talk about newbie mistakes! I was exploring "up there" in that hinterland of unintelligible-to-me headings and clicked on "my account" - (thinking that ought to be safe, LOL!). And I find two comments waiting for me! Thank you, Libby and Jean, and I may very well be taking you up on your offer! I mean, gee, I didn't even know where to find your comments and I was so longing to see "0 comments" at the bottom of my first post change to a legitimate number, you know, like maybe "1 comment". Oh, well, I'm off to see what I have to say for today!

Blessings to you!

Well, gee, it wasn't "my account" at all that got me to where your comments were. I couldn't figure out why I didn't get back there the second time I clicked on it. Now I have to get used to having a "dashboard" here, hmm? Well at least any mistakes with this dashboard can't result in a traffic ticket!
