Happy Metamorphosis and Blue Monday!









I decided to combine Metamorphosis Monday with Blue Monday this week. I found this really cute vintage chair at a yard sale for $5.00! I brought it home and painted it right up and added some beach-y blue material. I really like it. What do you think?

I don't know how the place you do a new post looks like but on Blogger and on WordPress (I have blogs on both of these), I just highlight the word or words I want linked to another blog. Then I click on the little thing that looks like a chain link that is displayed close to where you make words bold, etc. and then a box pops up with a place to put the url (that's the http: thing at the very top). First I go to the blog I want to link and copy the url from there. Then when the box pops up on the post page, I paste it there. It's really very easy as most things are when you know how. lol
Good luck. Let me know if I can help you further.

A further explanation of the url that you use to link. An example is the url for Charlotte's Weblog is http://char72.wordpress.com/
I hope I haven't further confused you.

What do I think? I think you should drop it off here! What a great job..and 5 bucks to boot! Good going Mary!
