"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Minutinho Blog — "Christmas-y"

A minutinho here today, a little minute, to write something, and try out this blog background, Dear Santa, from The Cutest Blog on the Block that has great tips, and lots of goodies.

The images seem to float!... Hmmmnnnn... actually the text moving, and the transparent effect fooling the eye!

The loading of the background takes a rather loooong time, though.

For a better appearance, I'd have to adjust the margin of the posts, and change font/link colors. (done... with blogger-post-format)

Update: I modified the background image, for a better placement of the text. I uploaded it to my Photobucket, but the linked image too small! It seems freebie account limited in size!?
So, uploaded it to Picasa... after a bit of a fight to get the right html tag, it finally worked! Never thought I'd be back, but: yea, Picasa!!!
