This is one of the new backdrops I am using. It's a vintage doll head and has a japan sticker on the back. It stands about five inches high, but, from responses I've received from others, it appears to be close to life size and makes the pendants look HUGE! ha ha ha. So, I've made sure there is a picture of someone wearing the necklace in my listing. Also, those holes that are made to attach the doll head to the body, um, how do I say...give me pause...lol. I made her a nice little bodice today. So she'll be more modest from now on.
I think this backdrop is working because I posted it yesterday and it was put in a treasury today (the first this year! yay) click HERE to see the treasury and show it some love...it really is a very nice collection.

I am so excited. Our main computer is in our game room and that is the only one that was capable of handling all my photo editing requrements as well as having the speed to be on the internet. It is also shared by everyone in the house excluding my husband, who has a "work related only" laptop, and my daughter in college (well can you imagine her letting me touch her macbook?) So I was resigned to sit in a corner, back to the world, to work on line.
NOT ANYMORE~ yay! I am still learning all the ins and outs as well as new photo software (my mind rebels at learning new computer skills) but I'm working through it.
Its now a faster and more efficient me~ wonderful~

For those of you who are wondering "you WHAT??", let me explain. There is a very fun feature on Etsy called Pounce. It randomly selects new shops that haven't sold anything or those that have just made a sale.
As you can see from the middle picture, I showed up on the "just made a sale" pages. What a fun surprise. I've never done that before but it was fun. I'd love to do it again sometime.

This is what it looks like today, one month and 2 days later:
Compare, if you please the tiny tomato plant you see in the first picture (at the far end of the garden) to the monster you now see before you~!This is a grape tomato plant and bountiful and prolific producer and spreader~ YIKES~! it's taking over. If you look closely at the top left of the plant you can see the tomato cage I put around it to, um, support it? ha ha.
I wanted to share this with my fellow gardening friends. Now I'm off to find a large, strong trellis! While I'm at it I might need a whip and a chair as well! lol
