New look!

I was really happy about all  the support some of you showed to me concerning the idea of changing the look of my blog, so I set to work right away. Truth be told, I had been a little tired of my blog's look. I mean, I liked it back in spring and it was lovely and refreshing during the hot summer, but recently it just has not felt right. I needed a change.

So, here it is, a brand new autumn look. I used one of Blogger backgrounds and customized the template colours a little. Though I had said I would do nothing fancy, I did something rather fancy anyway.

I had been thinking about a more personal header ever since Alison of Alison Can Read suggested to use the cat picture in the header. It took me some time to decide what I wanted to do with the header, and some more time to figure out how. In the end, I just made a collage. I chose pictures which remind me of my favourite books, characters and places. Can you guess which? There are at least two very obvious:)

I am quite happy with the outcome. I am not entirely sure about the text visibility, so if you think it is difficult to read, I can still change it. What do you think? I hope you like it and it does not scare you away.


  1. Wow - what a change! Very Fall inspired! :)

    I think the text is a bit tricky to read, but it's not really a problem.

  2. I love it. but yes, the text is little bit hard to read :)

  3. I love the header and think the background is georgeous. I do however find the text a bit hard to read and would have liked a calmer background on the middle of the screen. Admittedly I read your blog and most other things I follow on my rss-reader, so it's really not a problem for me on a daily basis as I hardly ever see the look of people's blogs.

  4. I agree with Jo, Cristina, and mostraum that the text is a bit hard to read. But, I like the fall feeling of it. :)

  5. Thanks for the feedback, everybody!

    As you can see I played with the backgrounds some more, and I think this one is much better for reading. I might be adjusting a few details in the next days, nevertheless.

  6. I love fall! What a cozy feeling! Looks great.

  7. Great change! I think the About me portion is difficult to read, but when you scroll down the page, it gets easier because then it's on the red leaves backdrop.

  8. Ooooo I love it! And your header is adorable :-)

  9. Looks awesome! Love the new header.


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
