(Yet another) new blog look!


I was in a very girlish mood today (when am I not?) and I made this pinky new blog look. Without a doubt a lot of you will think it's probably far too pink-ish, but it's my blog, right-oh? So if I'm in a pink-rosy-mood, I may put up a pink-rosy-look if I wish to do so.

Sorry, that might have sounded snobberish. :-P

But please, do tell me! Like it, or not?

  1. I'm not a large fan of pink, but this is gorgeous! I love the white font you used, and those little glimmers of light here and there. :-D I only know Mary, Anne and Jane Seymour out of all of them. They all have lovely clothes though. White and lacy. *siiiigh*
    Like it, definitely!

  2. IT'A BEAUTIFUL!!!!! This coming from the girl who isn't overly crazy about pink. ;-P Oh, Naomi, I love it!

    YOU HAVE JANE SEYMOUR ON YOUR HEADER. This must be celebrated. Oh yes, and I really want Helena Bonham-Carter's hair. *sigh*

  3. Hey, that's lovely! I really like it!
    I don't know all of them--I recognize Anne Shirley, Lady Mary Crawley, and Vera Brittain, but that's it.

    Like I just told Hamlette, my laptop has to go to the "doctor" and will probably be there for quite a while, so I won't be able to do much blogging stuff for some time :( So if I don't comment on your posts, it's not cause I don't like them or have run out of stuff to say :)

  4. Mmm, so pretty Naomi! I love this one. It's a very nice way to do pink, not at all overpowering.
    I recognize four of your pictures! Jane Seymour's is so pretty - I heard about Somewhere in Time from your blog and it was such a good movie.
    Lovely new look!

  5. This is beautiful! I love the pink- it's very you.
    I've just finished reading "Daddy Long Legs" after you mentioned it a few posts back and I can't tell you how glad I am that you did! I really really enjoyed it and it was a bonus to get it free on my kindle:) I did kind of guess who he was rather early on in the book, but it was still fantastic to find out my suspicion was right. Judy reminds me so much of you because your style of writing is the same, so easy and enjoyable to read and always hyphenating and making up words. I gave it to my sister Susanna (who is not a big reader) and she's already halfway through it! Thank you so much for the recommendation:)
    I'm going on holiday on Wednesday to a family wedding so I will probably miss your next few posts:( Still, I will look forward to catching up when I get back!

  6. *I* do not think it is too pink. There is no such thing as too much pink. ;)

  7. I'm not a huge fan of bright pink, but natural, soft pinks like these don't bother me at all. In fact, my sheer curtains in my dining room are a lot like your wallpaper here!

  8. Your new blog look is lovely! I like the little twinkly stars, and all the pink! Delicious! You really have a knack for creating beautiful layouts. All your pictures and colors go together so nicely! :)

    Great job, Naomi!

  11. It is SO. PRETTY. Like Hamlette I don't really like bright pinks, but I really love softer shades of it. You did a great job designing the blog as always!

  12. Ooh, this is LOVELY, Naomi! The roses-- the light-glimmers-- Anne, Lady Mary, Vera &c.-- ahh, this makes me happy. And no, you can NEVER have too much pink! :)

  13. Thank you SOOO much, dear everyones! :-)

    Some of you asked who all the Period Drama ladies on the header were, so I'll tell ya here. From left to right:
    1. The girl from 'A Room with a View.' (A Young Helena Bonham-Carter.) I haven't seen this. :-)
    2. Vera Brittain from Testament of Youth.
    3. Eliza from Somewhere in Time. (Yup Emma, I HAVE JANE SEYMOUR ON MY HEADER. I must admit I was waiting for your caps. By the way, I'm waiting for the day when you'll have Elizabeth Bennet (the right one) on your header. Just hinting.)
    4. The girl from 'Tuck Everlasting.' I just found the picture and GRABBED it. :-)
    5. Anne Shirley.
    6. Mary Crawley.

  14. Oh, wow. I LOVE IT. And I'm not exaggerating. Honestly, it doesn't even seem like your most pink-y header to me. I think because it's such a lovely, sophisticated, tasteful shade of pink--not at all overwhelming, just elegant and calming. And THAT PICTURE FROM TUCK EVERLASTING, THOUGH! For some reason, that has made me extremely happy. I know not why, since I haven't even watched the movie (yet)…but I love the book, and I like that actress:) So, long story short: Beautiful, m'dear!

  15. Too pink? Nonsense. That is hard to achieve, haha. (And besides, 'tis the right sort of pink.)

    I do love your header, it is very Edwardian and that pleases me muchly. :) And the background is gorgeous. I liked your old one, too. :)

  16. Personally, I'm not overly fond of pink... but you certainly may put up a pink-rosy-look if you wish to do so. ;) And I think your blog looks quite lovely, Naomi! :)

  17. I LOVE the new look!! There isn't too much pink in my opinion. And I just love your header!! :)

Leaving me a comment is like walking by my house and dropping a little note in the post-box. I mean, it's really nice of you. So thanks.
