I am a wife, a mother, an auntie and a friend. I love thrifting, garage sales, re-purposing, creating, painting, anything that makes our little rental home more welcoming, comfortable and cozy. I have discovered the "art" of amateur photography & I love the idea of capturing the beauty in the ordinary everyday things that surround us. Blogging is a wonderful way to make new friends and share with people who have the same interests. My personal taste in decorating leans towards "casual cottage/coastal decor". I now have a small shop on etsy, called "SandySeashore" where you'll find some of my vintage finds, my photography and some handmade things. I hope you take the time to check it out! Thanks for droppin' in!

Fun with pics and Picasa

I got the snow I was wishing for, not as much as I would have liked, but some anyway!

 It's an odd kind of snow, almost looks like little pellets of Styrofoam!

I took a few pictures and played around with them a little using Picasa. I love how different they look.

 So cool!

 My plain little snowman...
 Love it!
 "On frozen pond"
 Today's snowman...
 Looking like he's from the 1960's!
Retro-snow!!! :)
 My "Snow Angel"
 ...looking picture perfect!

I love Picasa!

Have you tried it?


  1. Sandra, you amaze me. Love what you did with your photos and yes I too use Picasa, Shirley

  2. Beautiful and I LOVE your snowman!! I hope the snow stayed for you otherwise you will have to come here and play in it. :)

  3. Picasa is indeed a lovely online application to help us organize our photo's well.
    Waiting for newer version of Picassa soon..I love this application.I like Picasa because it is a very Simple/Easy Tool for Image Organization,Viewing,Editing&Photo-Sharing etc.,
