I have spent a lot of time wishing I knew more about my camera, sometimes getting a bit annoyed with it because it seems so complicated - I never thought how I might be offending it by my ineptitude.
This photograph is from Zambio.
As the day becomes darker and darker, and little spots of rain appear, a little whisper begins a whirlwind of chatter, on laundry lines, barren from the fear of a storm brewing in the eastern skies.
We went to the German Christmas Market in Birmingham over the weekend - unfortunately, there wasn't a single thing that was German in it! Even the sausages were Lincolnshire and Cumberland - the burgers were made from kangaroo, ostrich, reindeer and Aberdeen Angus meat - not really known for hailing from Germany - the whole thing defied the Trade Descriptions Act! But I took some pictures - and here are some for you to look through.....
The Saga of the Caprilicious Rose Giveaway
I did say at the start that people would have to pay for the postage - just the jewellery was free. One of the ladies took exception to having to pay for postage - and then it ensued that she thought I was asking for payment for the pendant - too late, I had offered it to someone else by then.
Paypal began to play me up and charged people double the amount, so I had to cancel and resend the invoices, one person asked for earrings after they had all gone - but as she is a bit of a favourite, I will make more for her.
I posted news of the giveaway on the jewellery forum I belong to on Facebook, thinking to give something back to the ladies who offer constructive criticism, and stroke and soothe the old ego (stroking is always welcome) when I post my pictures on the forum, but the administrators deleted the post - no giveaways allowed! - PHEW! - it began to look like the proverbial badly organised p**s up in a brewery!
Made of the Mist
The boat that takes tourists up to the Niagara falls is called the Maid of the Mist. The name for this necklace is inspired by the mist over the park in front of our house - so beautiful, I rushed out and took a picture early this morning - unheard of! Mike was shocked!!
That's all I had time for this week folks. Have a good one, and I will catch you next week, same time, same place
