Hey, Y'all!

Notice anything different?

Anything at all?

No, the background color hasn't changed.  It's still white.  

Haha!  Yes!  I've finally updated my blogger template.  Been thinking about doing so for quite some time, and while I prefer sending off my ideas and requests to fellow bloggers with the fabulous designing skills, it is difficult for them to find the time--especially if they have a waiting list.  And I can't exactly afford to spend money on something I can find somewhere for free. . .

So, here we are!  Whatcha think?  I found this beauty on have some cute designs, and all for free!

And with that, it's been an Oo-de-lally of a day.  :]  


Don't forget to come again for a couple new posts!


  1. Oh my goodness, it is soooo cute!!! I absolutely adore it! Just...just...yes. LOVE. <333

  2. Nice new look! Pretty and understated. :)

    (Love the Robin Hood GIF, btw. ;) Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally, Golly, what a day!)

  3. Aw, lovely! It's a fresh new look, and it still feels familiar and homey. (And Robin Hood! <3)

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
