A big ol' thank you to Hubby! There's only so much computer techyness (yes, it's a word--go with it) I possess and God knew this when He created me. It's why when He designed a partner for me, He gave him all the abilities I lacked--and a whole lotta patience!
Anyway, at the beginning of the year I got a niggling to update my blog. New year, new look and all that. But I wasn't sure what color to go with. I love red, but I'd already used it. And while I like pink, I'm not quite that girly. I dress in black and grey, but knew if I chose one of those alone it'd be too drab for me. So I sat around and thought. Then I noticed:
My favorite shoes
The color I keep trying to sneak into my bedroom/bathroom
And my favorite chair ever! Grandma's chair. The one I loved the first moment I saw and shall never reupholster (nor shall Hubby, unless he uses the same fabric). The one I plan on designing my writing room/library around one day. I'm typically not such an antiquey person, but I loved the way this chair lit up Grandma's room.
And that's what I wanted at my blog. Something bright and cheery. And you can't get much more bright and cheery than yellow! But to do my entire blog yellow proved to be a bit much. So I found that lovely header, played around with it and the picture, found a background I liked...and that's about as far as I could take it. Step in Hubby and VOILA! A newly decorated blog.
So I hope you like the new look. Along with the thanks to Hubby I need to thank my friend Jocelyn for taking that lovely shot of me and my boots. Her gift is photography, and I thank her for using it on me. Hopefully this summer I'll even let her take a new shot of my face. Baby steps people.
I'd love to hear what your favorite color is and whether this new year has brought any new looks to something in your life. We're also redoing our bathroom right now - imagine, this is the shower curtain I'm attempting to convince Hubby we need: Hmm...I'm sensing a pattern here...
