Spring Decorating on the Blog

Spring is busting out here in east Tennessee! The trees are sprouting their cloak of foliage in brilliant, light green colors. Redbuds are living up to their moniker. Cheerful daffodils are waving in the breeze to their many admirers. And critters, large and small, are rejoicing.

So why not take the opportunity to “crow” about the new season that is now making its appearance? I’ve decided it’s time to do a little spring decorating here on the blog by applying a new custom header and background! To create this set, I used one of my photos of a weathered, folk art weathervane, shaped like a rooster. The image was taken in spring 2009 at the Bruton Parish House at Colonial Williamsburg, and previously featured on my blog HERE.


  1. Ahhhh, there she is! Spring that is! Down there in Tennessee. Well I'm glad that she's somewhere because I was beginning to have my doubts. Everything here looks fresh and neat as a pin. I like your new header very much. Hope that you're enjoying a fun weekend.

  2. I can almost smell the fresh spring air. It looks great.

  3. Spring is bursting out all over Oregon, too. I love your new Spring look. I'm ready to visit Williamsburg again. Loved it so much.

  4. You are so talented my friend. Love the clear blue sky!

  5. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa! Spring decorating on your blog!!!

    I'm not looking for how to make a custom Header. But am in need of how to put my own pic, as a Background.

    Using New Editor, all I can "make" work, is a grid of a pic. No matter how much smaller I make my own picture, it is never "small enough or something or other" to make New Editor happy, and make NE put my photo, as my Background.


    In Kindergarten steps please? :-) I'm sooooo dense, ya' know. :-)

  6. Love the beautiful blue skies and the rooster picture. Looks like springtime for sure. Jeanne

  7. Pretty!! Happy Spring; it feels like summer here though. Had to turn on the ac today! :)

    Have a great week!

  8. Love it! The blue is so blue, the verdigris so verdigris, and the shingles so shingly and springy! You know how I feel about weathervanes ...

  9. Goodness. You always amaze me. Wow.

    I'm crowing!!
