A New Birdhouse & A New Look for My Blog.

It's a new year, and with the new year, I thought it was time to get a new look for my blog. If you recall, my blog was rather plain & pink; hot pink to be exact; and I'm not really a hot pink person. Although I like the colour; I just didn't like it on my blog; I wanted a softer look.
So, while my son Jordan was home for the holidays, I asked him to help me apply a new background. I don't know my way around computers very well but as with most young people, he is right on the mark.
He helped me select a background I liked and then he set it all up for me, a new border and all... I also took a new photo of my Rose Chintz coffee set and added that to my header. Did you notice the adorable birdhouse beside the dishes? That is Jordan's Christmas gift to me. I love it!
The birdhouse is made of tin, hand painted on all sides and has the Fleur-de-lis on the roof. The Fleur-de-lis is actually a raised pattern in the tin and just lightly brushed with gold; so it is very ornate. The birdhouse is also decorated with pink crystals. I thought you birdhouse lovers would appreciate seeing it!

Thank you Jordan for all your help, I couldn't have done it without you. And thanks once again for the birdhouse. You really know what Mama likes!

Have a wonderful day everyone!
