A New Look!

Pin It Now!

How do you like my blog's new look?  I love it!  It is soooo me Amber from The Shabee Chick designed it for me!  She was a joy to work with and I was so impressed that with all the scattered things I told her I liked that she was able to design a blog layout that was perfect for me!  Click here to visit Amber's website and see some other great blogs she designed! 
Thank you Amber!  You're the BEST!!

Note:  I have a few hiccups with my blog links on my sidebar that I'm working out.  This is because of my previous layout and not Amber's design.  If you were listed on my sidebar and you no longer there, no worries...I will be adding you back again soon!

I was so surprised when I clicked on your blog this evening. What a pretty surprise. It reminds me of a beautiful shop that everyone wants to go in. So elegant and lovely. I just love it--The new 'My Romantic Home'.

It's a nice, but I don't care for the simple oval. I prefer your previous background. However, it's your blog and you should have it exactly like you want it.

Cindy,

The new blog layout & background is so beautiful & sooo perfect to showcase your beautiful home!

Annie said...

Love it! Your blog was the first I ever read, and I have enjoyed all the great inspiration you have shared over the last year. I found you via RMS, and I spread out from your blog! Thanks for the great ideas, and sharing your beautiul home with us.

Sue said...

I'm not seeing any blue on my computer, what's up with that. LOL
Very clean look. Hope it is all that you hope it will be.

Cindy,

Love your blog, love your writing, love your creativity, but if I had to vote on the new look vs old look, I would have to vote for the old look.

Loved the romantic blue hydrangeas, but then again, they are one of my favorite flowers so I can't really be objective. :-)

denise said...

Love the blue background!

Terri and Bob said...

Cindy, I love it! It is so YOU. Hope your day is going well!

Is it my computer? Your background is white with a yellow oval. Where's the blue you're known for? I'm guessing it's a technical breakdown. I totally loved your blue hydrangeas. Just call me Pierce, but I have to be honest I too would have to vote for the old background.

It looks so pretty, love it!

Joanne Kennedy said...

Hi Cindy,

When I first came here I thought it was the wrong blog. I have come to expect the blue hydrangeas. Your blog has always been so pretty. I loved it.

However, it's nice to go with a change and this one is simple and classy like your style of decorating. It is so you. I like it.

Very easy to read and find your way around. Nice job!

Hugs,
Joanne

Congratulations on your new look, and have a great day! :)

Cindy, I love your blog so much and it's my first blog stop each day. That said, I must be honest--I don't like the new front page. It's very plain. Not the beautiful romantic site I loved to open each day. No warm and fussy feeling here. It's nice but--not the pizzazz and beauty I'm use to seeing. It made me sad you changed it. I know--I'm an "anonymous" person but I might be one of the few willing to speak the truth. I have learned that bloggers always have only nice things to say and the rest of us keep our mouth shut. In this case, I like your blog to much and hope you can make some adjustments.

I love your blog, my first stop each day too, but I have to agree that your old home page was so beautiful. This one just doesn;t seem to fit your warm, lovely style.

Glenda~Many Fond Memories said...

Thanks for letting us know you hadn't forgotten us on the fav's. I know if I wasn't there I wouldn't have nearly as many visitors. I know for a fact, because when you did add me my numbers went up..

Again I love it. The header looks like a simple mirror that you painted yellow.

CIao for now

Victoria said...

Hi Cindy,

I peek every now and then and to be quite honest, (since you asked) I don't really like the new look. I'm sorry. )-: I do like your blog though. It's kind of like a home magazine ...complete with all the ads! (:

Daisy Cottage said...

It is just beautiful Cindy and so perfect for you. A blog design that reflects your passion and beautiful spirit. ((hugs))


xo,

Rue said...

Since you asked, count me as one of those who liked the previous look, but it's your blog and I'm very happy that it suits you and that you're thrilled with it.

I absolutely loved your old "look". The gold doesn't seem to fit somehow. But, love your blog, just the same!
