More thrifting, and some blogging questions

 
The absolute last thing I need in the world is more plates. But I adore plates. This set of dishes has been haunting me for over a week. Maybe it's been two weeks. I don't need them. It's gluttony...but, well, I bought them anyway. I got a set of six-plus (8 dinner plates, 6 salad plates, 7 mugs, and 8 bowls, all for $17). The pattern is called Italia, and is by Majesticware. No clue of it's value or age, but it just spoke to me. I have a set of hand-thrown pottery dishes that I had a co-worker make for me (stunningly beautiful), and odds and ends here and there along with a set of black dishes that a client gave me. But these are fun, and mismatching all of them will be fun too. And I bought that Fossil tote too--woven leather with a wooden handle, and a roomy 17" x 12" size. It's really nice! Half price, so it was $12, and it looks new. But I'm pathetic--I have bills to pay! So irresponsible...
But it's like dieting--if I starve myself I binge. Ditto with spending. I need a weekly thrift fix.

I have some blogging questions, if anyone knows the answer, I'd really appreciate it. I can't figure out how to make my posts all individual links versus by the month only (is permalink what I need to figure out?). Do any of you know how I can fix this in my template? I'm brain dead right now with blogger help for some reason. Thank you!
Also, is there a website where I can keep a to-do list, gimme list, goal list, etc? Posted by Picasa

With regard to the posts, what I did was this. The time at the bottom of your post is the permalink. I wanted to highlight some posts on a particular subject on The Eagle's Nest at http://eaglesplace.blogspot.com. Using the permalink URL I treated the posts in the same way I did a link and placed them on my sidebar under a heading so that it looks like a category heading with posts underneath. I just wish blogger would give us categories. They have had enough requests. I also wish they would give us a drag and drop method of loading pictures to our blogs.

Blessings and bliss
