Titles can be soo misleading.... no ?
When Dawn of The Feathered Nest first made my blog for me...I thought it was the MOST beautiful thing I had ever seen! Even now, I still love it ! Well...When Dawn had her own beautiful blog treated to a gorgeous new look recently, thanks to the lovely and talented Karen of My Desert Cottage....Who just launched her wonderful Web Design business called Valentine Design Well.... I, like so many of you ooh'd and ahhh'd and then I wanted something "new" for my blog too.....The changes I was thinking about were more along the lines of changing to 3 columns, a pretty followers button and a gorgeous new signature to close out my posts. (Did I ever mention I have a hard time with change?? I figure if it looks beautiful...don't mess with it!)
Then I talked to Karen and Dawn about my ideas for my lil blog and they had some great ideas for a "new" look for my blog and were so excited about how beautiful it could look and all I could think is....But...I LOVE my pretty lil blog and you guys are talking about it like my bebe is ugly lol ....kinda hurt my feelings...my poor lil bebe blog :)
When I mentioned this to Dawn she said..."hunny, we're not calling your bebe ugly...we're just trying on some pretty new dresses on her, to make her much prettier"....now...HOW...can you argue with that lol
Well, Karen and I talked a few times on the phone and this....Look all around your screen....is the BEAUTIFUL new blog that Karen created for me...Don'tcha just love my bebe's brand new dress! I sure do, I think it is the perfect fit! Beautiful, elegant, old world, frufru and gaudy...Rose frufru and gaudy style :) did I mention I love beautiful things?....
Yes, I am that woman....that when I see that gorgeous overly ornate, gaudy antique gold or dark wood frame..I gravitate to it...like a moth to a flame! Then when I bring it into my home...I think it is perfect...don't get me wrong...I quickly visualize it cream with antiquing glaze...but that thought I will be honest, last just a few seconds, as I look at all that beautiful gaudy loveliness before me...and I realize how much I love it just as it is :) My daughters call me ..."Fru Fru, Gaudy Girl" I wear that name with pride....cause that's how I roll :) lol
So when Karen sent me this blog mock up...I was literally jumping up and down because I was soo happy that this is exactly what I wanted...and didn't even know it lol
Thank you so much...Karen, Dawn and Lisa of Tarnished & Tattered , for listening to my rants of what I love and understanding my visions...that I didn't quite know how to put to words, that were easily understandable... But some how Karen did and gave me this beautiful "brand new" beautiful dress for my lil bebe blog...my own lil piece of heaven in this big...beautiful Blogland of ours!
If you want to completely redo your blog, or just add a few special lil somethings to it and like me....have no clue how to...Then go visit Karen at Valentine Design and I know she will help you achieve a look that you will just love!
Please let me know what you all think of my lil bebe's beautiful new dress...because my dear friends...your opinions do matter to me :)
