Playing Dressup

I loved dressing up as a little girl. And even now, I occasionally take the time to play with my wardrobe - finding new ways to wear the things I already own.

I took the concept of dressing up to my blog today. Someone (and I wish I could remember/find who the blogger was) had a link to this wonderful site! Itkupilli is a Finnish designer who lives in Los Angeles. She has backgrounds to add a little pizzazz to any site. It was hard to choose just one.

And then I decided my old banner photo would not do, so I put up a new one. What fun this has been - just like dressing up!

Let me know what you think - is it too busy? Too difficult to read the text with the mottled background? The great thing about this is the ease with which it can be changed.

edited to add: I changed the banner photo but decided the background was too busy. I don't like a lot of clutter and was waffling back and forth on it, and finally decided to remove it after Barb's comment.


  1. Lorrie, I love your new Spring look! I like your banner as it is. What a great button display!

    I'll visit that site you mentioned.

  2. Hi Lorrie...

    Love your new look! Your banner is wonderful.
    Really love your eggs in the previous post...beautiful.

    Have a great day!
    Hugs, Nancy

  3. Lorrie, as you have asked I love your header but the whole page is a bit too busy for me. I think so much decoration on the sides distracts from your blog.
