Dinosaur

I'm beginning to feel like our website is a ponderous, grizzly old dinosaur, especially compared to sites like flickr, blogspot and their ilk. So, I spent all of my day yesterday working on an overhaul. I tried about a million times to embed a slide show without success. There is no emoticon that could embody the sad/frustrated/unhappy/crabby face I would put here...
The good news is, now it's all spiffed up & functions well as my tile catalog with links to more dynamic pages for things like lamps and pots that are actually on hand & for sale in the studio.
The process was de-energizing in the extreme. Really, I was this tired. Two steps forward and one step back; all day long. I'm sure you'd like to hear all about it.

    Love the flickr links. I'm off to get lost in those.
