Thrifting & Great Art!!!

This is my favorite thrift shop! It is in the small town of Ralston Wyoming. I drove passed it for years without stopping, & just really discovered it last Summer. I always find great treasures there.

It is also a consignment store, so I've been taking my cast offs there & trading them in for other peoples. You know "One man's junk is another's treasure!"

Yesterday I was into pictures & filled some empty walls in my house.

I can't seem to get my pictures to go thru out my post. They always go to the top. Any suggestion's would be greatly appreciated!!!

Waowww! If I ever get to Wyoming (maybe to go to Yellowstone?) I'm sure I'll remember this photo ánd the shop hahaha (don't even have a clue whether Ralston is even close to the road to Yellowstone, but my husband went there once and he says it's nice to go there again, so...).

Love the artwork by the way :)

I put my photo's were I want them via cut-paste. Just click on the photo, click CTRL-X to cut, go to the part of your message where you want the photo to be, and click CTRL-V (Paste). The photo will appear where ever you were "standing".

Great pictures. All the years that I lived there, I never went in that thrift store either. What a dummy!

For my pictures, I actually start by uploading whichever picture I want on the bottom. I then post any words in between, then add my top pictures. So sometimes I write my posts upside down. I have used the cut and past technique that Anja described as well.

Hiya Stacy!

I put all mine in at the top, and then click and drag them where I want them throughout the post.

I select size large or medium usually and keep the photos in the center for the most part.

It's easy to both move them and click to resize them a little if you need to.

Great finds! Can't wait for you to see the stuff I've gotten for our French swap!

Hi! I'm here through Anja's challenge. Just want to say hi! And of course have your favorite thriftstore address if Anja doesn't pop in before me! ;-D

It all depends on your browser system. If cut and paste as desribed by the ladies before me doesn't work, try html in stead of compose. Good luck!

I can't believe I never stopped there the whole time I lived in Cody! It's good you found it. Thanks for adding me to your friends list!!! I found you thru my blog stats. :-)
