Blog Design

I have a need for variety, and can't seem to settle on a blog design. It's a good thing that I am not a major corporation like COKE™ or APPLE™ because if I were, I would have significant brand issues. Happily, I am just a woman who likes to design blog pages, so it doesn't matter if I change my blog design every month or may require a double take on your part, to make sure you are in the right place.

Have you noticed I appear to have a penchant for birds? There is a reason for this. (Mariah recently asked Mark "What's with all the birds around here?") My grandchildren come to visit my home, and when they do, all our birds out. We have chrome birds, ceramic birds, glass birds. They love to gather them, and wrap them in dish towels, or 'nests' and make bird families. I will find them wrapped up in a corner, or tucked under a cushion. It is a special and regular 'thing' that we share. They know that they are allowed to play with any of the birds, which are actually here for them. In fact, I picked up a little white ceramic bird today at The Urban Barn, for $3.50. It will be on display for my grandchildren when they come in 2 weeks:)

I also have a thing for Poppies and pugs...a tribute to our beloved and belated pug, Poppy. I have a sign in my back entry that says 'Stay Calm and Love Pugs'. That is my motto!

I love you need for variety, it helps me to venture out a little more :0) By the way, you need to give me the blog header lesson. I've been wanting to figure that out sometime.

I love that you used the word penchant. I've always liked that word but I don't think I've used it in a sentence before. Maybe in my talk tomorrow I can sneak it in.
