The Portrayal of Pictures

I’ve received so many nice comments from my readers about the pictures I use here on the blog. Now, let me set the record straight and tell you that SOME of those pics are NOT mine. (However, when I use a picture that belongs to someone else, I always make sure I give them proper credit! I would want the same done for me!)

I’m kind of surprised that people actually like the pictures I take of my home, and food, and projects and what have you, because it’s a bit out of my element. However, I am ALWAYS a work in progress, that’s for sure!
