FACE- LIFT


It is Blue Monday with Sally and friends at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com


I have a new face-lift in case some of you have not noticed. It is not a personal one for me, but should be. However, I will never do that. I still have everything, such as it is, that the good Lord gave me except my gallbladder. What you see is just me and will be when they put me under.

My sister gave me a new blog face-lift and button for my Christmas. Some of you have commented about it. I had several choices on backgrounds and headers. They each carried a ladies name. Two reasons I picked this one: it has a pretty shade of blue and it was called "Sally". Perfect for Blue Monday. I have wanted a "button" of my own for awhile. That was what I asked for. As you can see, I got a new header and side bar as well. There just comes a time when we need changes in our lives.

When I spotted this old blue fellow in an antique mall, he said put me on Blue Monday. Since I am one to please, here he is in all his blue glory.

LV, I do love your new look. I have a thing for the brown and blue combination myself. I love the little brown bird that changes to Comment make my heart sing. Now that's cute!
I really like the blue rooster. Years ago I had a blue and yellow kitchen and I used to collect roosters. He would have fit in here then.
Hope you have a fun blue Monday!
Hugs- Tete

What a nice Christmas present that was! I think I did already comment on your new look. (I'm with you on the only kind of facelift I'll ever try is the kind you did!)

And a lovely change this is. I love the blue and brown colors. It's just YOU, my dear. Shall we start calling you "Sally"?
That's a very sweet bird.

I did notice your new look, but just neglected to mention it. It's a nice improvement. What a great sister!

Now, that blue rooster is lucky that you saw him and not me. I would've brought him into my kitchen which has no blue!

Happy Blue Monday, LaVoice.

I love the new header, it suits you perfectly. When you get to 100 we'll change it 110. =) I cannot imagine the blogging world without you. I love the rooster too. I've wanted one like that for my front porch from Eldreth. That would require a lot of "chicken scratch". I'll just admire yours instead.

George said...

I really like the results of your blog face-lift -- it looks good. The rooster looks pretty good as well.

Ann said...

I will second my comment yesterday about your blogs "new look". What a fantastic, thoughtful gift. The old rooster is cute too.
