FINITO! – BLOGGIESTA HAS ENDED….

Bloggiesta-MiniJu18-finito

Well, the weekend and Bloggiesta are over!  I accomplished quite a few things, but then I started early.  I added to my original list…and finished all but the Twitter chat, which I always seem to forget because of the time difference.

I think I’ll stop adding it to my list, since I really don’t get Twitter chatting…lol.

Here are my tasks, crossed out, FINITO!

Enjoy your week….

BLOGGIESTA: BEHIND THE SCENES

cropped-cropped-picmonkey-collage-june-mini-blog.png

Bloggiesta does not officially start until Saturday, but typically, I couldn’t wait.  Definitely eager.

I started with the noticeable changes, like the new theme, header (above), and background.  Then I added a page, changed the sidebar…and from there, I started on the more tedious tasks that are not so noticeable.  Like correcting broken links.  I had a few because I had deleted some blogs…

I went back to the beginning of 2013 and moved forward.  All is much better now!  Hopefully I won’t find any others…

Meanwhile, I took a break from my blog tasks to rearrange some tablescapes and vignettes around the rooms.  I took some items from my Hall Tree and arranged them (below), with a few others from various spots….

 

June 15 - more tablescapes

Here’s the Hall Tree….

 

June 15 changes - 2

And the new little table is enjoying a couple of geese from other places….the new bench arrives today!

 

June 15 changes - 3

So…now I am off to try (once again) to engage with Tuesday Nights in 1980.  I don’t know why I’m having so much trouble!
