No, really! I will be brief, I promise.
Over the weekend I discovered that the new camera sucks the juice out of batteries quicker than Popeye swallows spinach, so today I dashed to town for a battery recharger and a supply of rechargeable batteries. Right now the first pair are still charging (about 6-7 hours per pair is what it takes) so I won't be posting much in the way of photos or adding new items to Etsy until tomorrow.
Meanwhile, a rainy day kept us pretty well tied to the house, so I asked my son to come up with a new shop banner for MelmacParadise. I told him I wanted something that wasn't formal, but rather would let buyers know I gear the shop mostly to the kitsch and the offbeat.
Well, he did. He certainly did. So, for the time being, I have a bizarre new shop banner. Feel free to check it out.
Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...
Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.
--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse
