I thought miniaturist's might enjoy this carpet which can be printed onto fabric for other scales to for your personal projects. There was just a small part of it in an antique magazine but I loved the design so I cloned some of the parts and gradually turned it into a full carpet. The edges are not as nice as I would have liked them to be but if you could trim it or add fringe to match. I loved the baby painting and thought you might to. It is also from an antique magazine. I thought you might like to use it for gift cards or framed in miniature etc.
As of January 11 there will be an update on Google Blogs and I am posting the info below. I wanted to add this update from Google about everyone who is not Google Blog connected will be removed from our followers.
December 21, 2015
In 2011, we anounced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.
As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
