Camera Bliss, Computer Woes

As you know hubby gave me a new camera for Christmas which I am still learning how to use. Today I took several pictures (too many for one post) so I thought I would share a few.
Of course, this handsome face needs no explanation (he was enjoying the sunshine on the dining room table:).
One of our local thrift shops hosts a monthly silent auction. I bid on this lovely antique silver pitcher and won it!
It was a great subject for me to practice taking close-ups and details!
Now that I have shared my camera bliss it's time for the computer woes.
We also bought a new computer but it has been problematic.
I am able to post to my blog but most of the time it will not let me visit other blogs. Occasionally it works, but rarely. So, please be patient as I work out these computer bugs and I will visit all of you as soon as I can:)!
Thanks to all of you in blogland that make this so much fun!
I truly appreciate your comments and your friendship:)!

Oh Kim!!! You have been having problems too? I have heard from other blogger pals that they too have had computer problems and leaving comments. Your kitty is soooo cute and you really scored with that lovely silver pitcher! WOW! How nice that you would come to visit me, Kim. Thank you. Have fun with your camera; you do take lovely pictures! Have a magical and blessed week. Anita

Lucky you with a new camera!
You will have so much fun learning how to take even more fantastic pics.
I will be looking forward to your post and seeing the charm from your world.

The pitcher is just lovely and that little soft face is always a joy.

Graced by your visit today I assume you are making progress with your computer problem.
The picture of Kramer is cute.
I like the sterling plate pitcher too. Probably for water... those Victorians had something elegant for everything didn't they?

That Kramer is so very cute!!!

I'm glad to see such a beautiful pitcher went to a good home that will take good care of it.

Lovely pics! :)

Thanks for the compliments on my blog about the tatted lace bookmarks! It was a fun exchange and a different kind of challenge. I don't make "manly" lace too often, LOL!

I simply love that one of Kramer! It is a calender worthy pic and he just looks like one sweet, happy cat.

Too bad about the computer woes. Hope a solution is around the corner.

Maybe it's not the computer at all??? The camera's doing an amazing job. Congrats on the pitcher. It's just lovely.

Hi Kim,
Your pictures are just wonderful! Isn't it fun to have a new toy to play with? Sometimes I think my camera is my best friend.
Of course Kramer is a doll, but that pitcher is lucky girl you! I'm so glad you won that pretty thing.

The camera is doing great! When I clicked on the picture of Kramer, you could see every whisker and detail with such clarity. Have you taken your computer to where you bought and ask them about your problem? They should be able to hook it up to their Internet pretty easily and test it.

Sorry to hear about your computer, but your camera is a winner. I loved the photos of the silver pitcher. Good eye!
