I've been tagged for the photo game




The game is to go to your computer, go into your pictures and pick the 4th folder and the 4th picture in that folder. I've been tagged by Jean at myromanticountry home.blogspot.com.

This picture is of my kitchen before I started to update it. I bought a banner at our local craft gallery that had old music behind the letters so I began to notice thing with old music.

I saw in a magazine, but can't remember which one, where they had wallpapered the back of a cupboard in a bathroom with old music, it looked really neat. I went to e-bay and bought some old music to do that for my antique armoire but wondered if it would be too busy.

I tried it on the back splash in my kitchen just to see if it would look good there. I have since wallpapered the kitchen with toile wallpaper so I won't use it in the kitchen. My Mom told me she thought the music was too busy so I just abandon the idea. What do you all think???

This is a picture of the armoire in my bedroom. You can see the banner that I bought hanging in front of the mirror. I am getting ready to paint the armoire white when I start working on my room. If you look in the mirror you can see my dressmakers form. I saw on Notes from a Cottage Industry where she used old music to decoupage an old dress form and I think it looked really great. I have plenty of old music to do it with. Hopefully I will get to it soon.

Can someone tell me how to get the pictures between the text? I am totally clueless how to achieve this. Thanks!

One thing I learned was to load the pictures in reverse of the order you want them in. Otherwise it was click and drag to get them in the right order. I get the cursor between the pictures and start typing to get the text between pictures. Sometimes you have to try it a few times and maybe hit "Enter" to create the space to put the cursor there. Good luck with that. I don't know if I explained that very clearly or not.

I remember that bathroom you mentioned with the music - I thought it was a fantastic idea and filed it in the back of my little pea brain to use someday- If I remember correctly that bathroom had lots of great ideas- I think she did the little ornament made out of old eyeglasses- loved that idea too!!
