New Feature on my Blog

I hope you are enjoying the pictures I have recently added to my blog, Thought For The Day .  My daughter recommended that I do this and gave me a site that had pictures I could use.  The site is and is free. This site has more than 30,000 pictures to choose from covering all topics you could imagine and many you wouldn’t even have thought of.

I spent several minutes yesterday choosing pics I liked and saving them for future use.  I requested the subject, “people” and got more than 30,000 pictures to choose from for my blog. I’m having fun with this.  It gives my blog a personality and expands my choice of topics.

So if you have a site you want to promote check out  You’ll be amazed at the variety.

Take advantage of free shipping

Next week, between Feb. 6 and Feb. 9, 29 pieces of my handmade jewelry will be discontinued for sale from my Etsy shop. If you would like to purchase one or more of them, shipping in the US will be free, as usual. All of the 29 pieces will go up for sale on my Jewelryalamode site, where I do charge for shipping for any item over $10. If you are interested in saving the shipping cost, take advance of this feature. After February 9, they will no longer be listed on Etsy.
