A New Header, the one above is new too!

What to choose, what to choose? I can do a header now, I figured it out!
You click on customize up the top, then you click on 'edit' in the title (header) box and you can add a description into the box and upload a picture or photo, by browse(ing) in your computer or web address URL. Save it and view blog, see if you like it. If not just do it again. You can also change colour and size type of font by clicking on the fonts & colours tab after customise. Why not have a go if you haven't already.

What do you think? Let me know your choice in the comments
Some do not quite come out and I don't know how to change colour of writing. Huh I figured that out too - use the fonts and colours tab after the first one.

Afternoon Tea anyone?

Hello! So great to see you today! Come on in and borrow one of my vintage hats.

Choose a cup and saucer from the cupboard while I make the tea and pop a cosy on!

Now lets have a cupcake or two with our tea! and chat about all sorts of things.

Lastly we'll say a quiet prayer for those Aussies who have been suffered so much in the floods in Queensland and the fires in Victoria.
We'll think about what we can contribute to help by donating to the Red Cross in Australia at www.redcross.org.au OR 1800 811 700 (for Aussies 0nly), or in a practical way via the blogs of beautiful people like Kirstie at http://adelinecountrycottage.blogspot.com/ and/or Monica who is putting together comfort packs for children at http://beyondpinkandblue.blogspot.com/

Love and Prayers

Australia in mourning - bushfire tragedy

My heart is heavy and prays for mercy as I write this, the death toll is 84 and expected to rise and at least 750 homes lost in Victoria. There are fires in NSW and SA also.
I have just heard a few raindrops on the roof to bring the high temps down here. We want rain but pray there is no lightning that starts fire. For more of the story please visit http://shabbyartboutique.blogspot.com/
Feb 10 am- death toll has risen to 173
Feb 10 pm death toll has risen to 181
