A New Look!

Pin It Now!

I had Amber at The Shabbee Chick design a new banner for me and I also switched to a 3 column blog!  If you are looking for a new look for your blog, I highly recommend Amber!  I think she did a fantastic job!

3 column means there are sidebars on each side instead of just one side.

Great new look for your header. Very soft and romantic and two of my favourite shots of your home.

Your new look is absolutely scrumptious - and a much better frame for your creative soul.
Thanks for the hints and inspiration,

Hi, Cindy! I like the new banner but I still miss your hydrangeas! They were so "you" that I still can't see blue hydrangeas without thinking of you!

I like it. Thanks for the comment about the cornices, I think I'll leave them the fabric is very pretty, the photo doesn't do it justice. Still have to figure out what to do with the other window as there were only 2 cornices and there are 3 windows. The other window is a long door size. I am just getting around to windows after 9 years, no hurry here.

Lovely hutch, I really like how you have everything displayed.

Looks great!! Amber just did mine as well, check it out!!

Melissa Lester said...

Your blog is always such a beautiful spot to visit, and I love dropping in to see what I will discover next. Your new banner is lovely, and it's amazing how closely your chair resembles the more expensive one. You have such a good eye and an amazing ability to turn discarded items into treasures. You're such an inspiration!

Much much much better, honey. I was going to tell you how slow it originally loaded because it had PNGs and not JPGs, but this one loads really well now, sweetpea.

Come on over and sign up for my 500th post giveaway if you're so inclined. It will be given out tomorrow. I think you'll like it...........

Smooches,

You have a beautiful blog... don't know if i've every commented before, but I read you all the time.. Beautiful home.. The fact that it's an apartment (if I've read your posts etc. correctly) is simply amazing... hey, if you ever come to south Texas... I've got a couple of rooms that could use a redo... you're amazing...

Love it! I have a few of her 'freebies' on my blog and when I recover from the house purchase price, I am going to have her do my whole blog.

As always, very classy!
