LOVIN' MY NEW LOOK

So what do you think? I am madly in love with the new look of my blog. It is very "me". I've been working with the uber talented Karen Valentine of VALENTINE DESIGN to re~vamp the whole design.

Do you see what she used for my sidebar buttons? My fabulous French chair that I kept from Marburger! Is she a genius or what? She completely blew me away with that one.

And the chippy shabby frame around my header couldn't be more perfect! The pic inside is of my favorite antique dress form inside my garden cottage (a future post). I have been wanting a unique look for awhile now and I think she gave me just that.

If you are looking to freshen up your blog, I highly recommend that you contact her and get going. You won't be disappointed...

And now that that's accomplished, it's on to getting my Etsy shop going. I'll let you know right away when the shopping can commence.

Until next time...

I live in Texas. I was looking at your blog and saw the question about what is selling. I think you should try some french china,Haviland, limoges,etc. There are some with tiny flowers. I also think for fall you should try brown, purple and red transferware for seasonal color. You might use a white or tansferware pitcher with fall leaves to catch the eye. I have been to Round Top and to me you can never find pretty ceramic teapots. I hope this will help.

I've worked a bit with Karen too....isn't she the GREATEST?

donna...@ d. reyne's said...

I love your new "do"!
It's so...you!
I think Velentine Designs did a fabulous job.
And...what's this about a cottage?
I can't wait to see what you do!
Have a wonderful weekend
Blessings,
Donna
