See My New Blog Banner and Button?? I’m very excited about them!

They are a gift from Tracy, the sweet author of Tracy’s Trinkets and Treasures.! Thank you Tracy!! I love them!! Tracy  reviewed my blog through The Bold and The Beautiful blog hop. I shared with her that I wanted to make some changes to my header and font and she surprised me with the banner…and the button to match! I love how she was able to match the polka dots in my sides! The flourishes are so pretty…much better than my feeble attempt! :-) Some people have told me that their monitor doesn’t display my decorated sides and so I am tickled that my new banner is more “dressed up”. Tracy, thank you for sharing your time and talent with me!!  I have learned that blog friends truly are “real friends”! I am grateful for our growing friendship! Please visit Tracy’s blog and enjoy her sweet creativity! Right now she is hosting a “Macro Photo” linky party and a CSN Stores Giveaway!

Entering The Bold and The Beautiful (Your blog reviewed)Blog Hop is one of the best things I have done for myself as a blogger. I got brave, put myself out there and received some much needed feedback! Most of it was very positive…Thank you reviewers! :-) The gently spoken constrictive  criticism was much needed and in agreement on what I could do to improve my blog’s appearance. Thank you again reviewers! I plan to re-read all the suggestions and then put together a list and then begin implementing the changes. I really want my blog to be someplace that you come to with a cup of hot tea or coffee and stay awhile! I want you to be able to get to know me, finds things easily, and relax and enjoy!! Look for the changes soon! There is still time to enter the blog hop and get some input on your blog!

Thank you Tracy! Thank you blog reviewers and new friends! I can’t believe that I am two, yes two friends away from 300!!!! Another  reason to be excited!!! Anyone want to send two more friends my way? ;-) They would be very welcome here!


  1. I think the banner looks good! I am so glad you like it and wanted it. I was so worried I was stepping on your toes. Maybe you were steel toed boots so it didn't hurt. :) Thanks for the shout out about the macro party and the thank you. I was so happy to do it for you. That's my favorite thing about blogging. Helping where I can.

  2. Love the new is wonderful!!

  3. It all looks great. And I already come and sit with my hot cocoa and read your blog. :) Thanks for the tips on the B&BB I will have to check that out.

  4. Hey there!! I think your blog is darling!! The only thing to point out is that your background loads REALLY slowly on my computer... but that might be a problem for my computer, and not your blog! =) Also, I think you should move your followers box up to the top so it's easier to find it and become a follower! =)

  5. It is Wonderful!!
    Not sure about the great horned owl day but I found out about the Penguins at this site:
    They have some interesting facts. Our sons should get together and compare notes!
    Have a great day,

  6. I love your new banner and blog button. I put the button on my site. It does not link to you - should it?

  7. I love the new look! Tracy did a great job :)

  8. Love the poka dots all around! I love poka dots!
