Bloglovin, FB, Pinterest and some photos to share

     Hello my friends!   No card for this post, just some info about a few things connected with my blog.
     I'm sure most of you have read somewhere or another out in crafty bloggie land that come July Google Reader will no longer be available.  It's my understanding that the Google Follower widget will NOT be done away with.......yet.  However, in preparation for the reader removal I have joined numerous of my friends in signing up for the Bloglovin reader.  I hope you enjoy my blog posts and work enough to follow me through the Bloglovin reader or email after the Google reader disappears.  If you would like to continue to receive my posts please click on the Bloglovin follower button in my sidebar and let me know you've done so if you'd like me to follow you too.
     Secondly I'd like to let you know that I have added boards to my Pinterest account for several of the stamp companies I love and design for.  If you've seen a card you liked or that inspired you it will be much easier to locate it on the board instead of searching on the blog although there is a search button on my sidebar and a label category too.  Just thought it might make things simpler.  ☺
     I'm going to try to pick up the pace a bit with my FB posting also so if anyone would like to follow me there you can click on the button at the top of my sidebar.  Speaking of which, the icons I have added seem to be playing hide and seek when I open my blog page.  Please let me know it they are doing the same when you come to visit and I'll change them out for something more reliable.
     Last but not least I promised to share some photos from the trip to Bellingrath Gardens my mom and I took Thursday.  It was a bit windy and nippy that day, at least for the two of us.  I think that bus load of snowbirds got quite a few chuckles out of us all bundled up in hooded jackets while they were running around in shorts, capris, and short sleeved shirts.
     With the back and forth weather we've had this year the azaleas were not all blooming out fully at the same time, but they were still lovely and there were lots of other pretties to see.  Here we go!














     Hope you enjoyed the photos.  We sure enjoyed exploring the gardens for about three hours.  My best friend was jealous when I told here we'd gone so I promised we'd go back when the huge rose garden is in bloom.  sigh......can't wait!
     Have a wonderful blessed weekend!
