    good find ! Beautiful Redoux! So, tell me…. I’m a bit confused on this point…. how can a picture be too small, and what is full size pics ?

      Oh that is a good question! Digital pictures have a pixel size . The higher the pixel, the more detailed they are when you go to print them. However, really big pictures take a long time to load and can slow down your site. For that reason, most bloggers Resize everything to smaller pixels before they upload the pics. It looks the same digitally, but if you were to print the resized pics, it would be very grainy.
      A good blogger should keep a separate folder of original pictures in case they need to be used for print at some point in the future.
      I am vowing to change my lazy ways!

        I guess I knew the info about pixels… and I think in those terms if I know I will want to print out a photo somewhere down the road (I’m the photographer in the family). I just didn’t get it in the context of this post. Thank you for clarifying!

[…] Not only do stores often throw things out that are broken, but this is prime area for illegal dumpers who just want to offload their unwanted furniture and don’t want to pay fees for the dump.  I have found mirrors, dressers, bookshelves, chairs, you name it.  My favorite was this broken console behind Kirklands.  I made it into a rolling bench/shoe storage.  Read all about how to make this project yourself in THIS post.
