If you have a love for vintage things, well....you have come to the right place. We have a really good time each and every week!!!

I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.
........don't always flock together.....All I can say is what a week. It all started last Friday when all was right with the world, the birds were busy singing, the sun was shining....you know the days I am speaking of.... almost perfect.
....until the buzzards started circling when I checked my email via my phone. I had a couple of emails from blogging and online friends saying they had received a suspicious email from me and wanted to check to see if I had actually sent it or if not, let me know my email had been HACKED........I promise at that exact moment...but birds stopped singing and fled to friendlier lands....far away.
To sum up the nightmare....
One, my email was hacked....may still be and most likely is. It is my yahoo email that I use for my blog and everything else personal. I have had that email for YEARS. Well, once they hacked into my email (How I don't know) somehow I could not longer send emails or respond to any emails at all.
Two, I changed my password, several times. Nothing. Spent hours on the phone with people I could not have understood had I been looking them in the face. Seriously. I shake my head to the fact there is no such thing as speaking to a IT tech anywhere in the United States.
Third, I opened up a gmail email and changed everything on my blog to that email. I have no access to my address book from the old one. So IF you get an email from me via a yahoo email....delete it. I will only be using Gmail from now on. It is a mess....I hate it. I had saved emails from special people who are no longer here and who have passed on. . I have been sick over losing some of those precious words that I have saved.
Lastly, is to take the computer in for a clean up and reinstall. Another pain in the you know what. But...I guess I need to do that. Seriously, I AM NOT THAT INTERESTING....why in the world would someone want to hack MY email??? I guess they are interested in vintage goodies, sewing stuff, recipes, and a little family gossip thrown in for good measure. All I can say is they need to get a life....and stay out of mine.
After a stressful week, this little bird in a basket came home with me one day while I was out looking for "thingies" that I don't need....ahem. I liked it, and it was a good buy, and a reminder that the birds will be singing again soon.....after I decide to let go of the fact of losing my personal email and all the personal things that I had saved there. I am still sick over it, but nothing can be done about it now......
....but those nasty ole email hacking, stealing buzzards better fly to other grounds...this ole crow is still mad and still has her feathers all ruffled and that is NOT a good thing !!
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!
