More than just ad....An inspiration



I was looking thru a magazine and saw this ad. Im not looking for blinds but a new look for my blog. This ad just jumped out at me. I love the colors and the clean lines...YES! This is how I want to feel when I see my blog. I had the pleasure to meet an awesome lady and fellow reader. She agreed to take on the task of fixing my mess. Bless her heart. She was so sweet and kind. I almost feel bad for her. Im not that great at explaining myself so that makes it even harder. My {wanna be} style is the complete opposite of what she is use to working with. So now I sit with anticipation hoping she doesn't regret giving me the ok and run for the hills. She is going to take what I have and just make it better. So thank yall for being patient with me during this metamorphosis. The best is yet to come~

  2. I found you...well I'm not sure how! But I wanted to stop in and visit! How exciting to be getting a makeover and I love the inspiration add! I'm in the process of finding someone to revamp my blog so I'd love it if you'd post her name and website so I can check her out!
    Happy Friday~

  3. The inspiration I get from the ad is the stools. I like the backless best because you can hide them away completely under the counter. Although, it might not be the best for a 2 year old!
    Can't wait to see the new look for your blog!

  10. Happee Friday, Susie!! I have seen blogs that give me the same feel as that ad does...but I can't remember who they belonged to!!

    Great look, though! Funny I just talked to Edie who did some graphic work for me about a possible "blog-lift"!!

    Isn't it so neat to see how everyone's blog evolves as they begin to sense their direction and purpose more fully?? Just love it!!

    Have a joyful day...I know it will be beautiful and look forward to seeing it when it's done!!

    Blessings,
    Becky

  24. This is going to be beautiful, Susie. She looks like she's sitting on your island. I can see why you were drawn to this inspiration.

    It's the sort of look I'd like to see at the back porch. That's why I did the simple grid of room photos at the top. Trying to make it better but afraid to change the template for fear of losing the whole thing and having to start over!! So I decided I'd incorporate the colors of the background, in the banner. Still trying to clean up the sidebar too.

  39. Here is what I love about that ad...I could never in a million years have that room in my home, because the pristine whiteness and cleanness would be grungy gray in about 6 minutes flat! However, if that look is on your blog then it will forever remain clean and calm and soothing, just as it was meant to be. I love your blog already so can't wait to see what is in store!
