surprise!!!

Shoot!!!
I just love changing things willy nilly.
I have to say. . redecorating my blog is the cheapest outlet to this urge there is.
On Saturday I was visiting Gracious Hospitality and I was so impressed with the new link she had created for all her blog friends.
She had created another page where her list can be miles long and it won't busy up her blog.
I took one look at hers and set to work creating a similar page.
At the top left hand corner of my blog you will see the link to my blog friends.
I'm also working on shortening up my index list.
Quite frankly . . .it was way too long.
Well, then when I did that. . .
the templates to redecorate where calling my name. .
and that led to . . .
a new banner.
Such fun.
I do hope that those of you who so enjoy the same old thing. .
day in and day out. . .
will once again humor me. .
I'm off for my walk. .
have a wonderful day my friends.
Don't forget to check out my new friends page. .

  1. Your 'new attitude' is wonderful! Love the new look.

    And I love all the flowers! So many purples and lavenders --- it seems all I am finding this spring are yellows. It must be a westward thing. . .

    Enjoy a lovely day!

  3. I love any shade of purple. I loved your surprise this drizzly Monday morning. This old bestest friend had a little smile as I saw your friends page... and I thought I should start to blog just to have a spot on your friends page. SHOOT! Maybe I will make the list someday, but I just love you and the great friendship we share. I enjoy getting to know you in a neat and creative way even more through your blog. God has blessed me with your friendship. Kathy

  5. It's great...I like it! I may just borrow your idea for 'blog friends' if I ever get around to changing things up. I tend to leave things 'as is' far too long!

  6. It does bear repeating...I love the new look! It's so fresh! (And purple is still one of my favorite colors!)

    The bloggy friends link is a good idea, too.

  7. I LOVE it!!! Gorgeous colors too. As a fellow willy-nilly changer of this and that "just because," I totally understand the urge.

  10. It is very nice Lovella, as is anything you decorate. I did love the way you had it for a very short time with the more crazy looking font in the title. But a change is a good as a rest my mom always says.

  12. Oh it all looks wonderful! I have zip energy for decorating anything, but someday I'll get the urge again.

    Great idea about the separate blog roll.

  13. Hi Lovella!
    Thanks for visiting my blog today! I'm glad you enjoyed seeing some of my photos from Ireland -- I'll be posting many more from my recent trip.

    I think the idea of having a seperate blog roll page is a great one! I think I'll do that one day wehn I have some time.

    All your purple lavender color flowers are gorgeous.

  14. I wish I knew how to do it! The width looks so much nicer than a normal page.
    Maybe you'll do a tutorial!

  15. I feel the same way - bloggy decorating is cheap and such a creative outlet - and no mess :)

    Yours looks lovely!!

  16. ha ha ha, it feels like I'm reading your blog backwards...like reading a book back to front.

    It's okay though, don't change it for me...I'll get used to it ;)

  17. Well I love your new site.
    It's like you said, it doesn't cost a thing to be creative, just time...

    I'm sure your walking time helps you reflect, create and think of many new ideas.
    You keep all of us on our toes.

  18. Love the space and the color in your header/ banner, all of a sudden I can't remember what to call the part at the top!

  19. Very pretty. So you just started a new blog, for your friends list. Even I might be able to manage that one? Any pointers. I need to tidy things up over at my place. I'd love to figure out how to do a drop down list, I began, but it was too complicated for my knowledge or my time. drats.
    I am so glad it is easy for you to change things about. Your blog and you are lovely. And I mean it my sweet friend.

    Although, I really did like seeing all your friends posts on the front-neat to get a few lines of their latest posts.
