I'm with vicki on this...everytime I open up your blog, I smile when I see the pretty pastel pink and the new header!

Love the photos of nature's orange and grey!

Totally behind on blog reading, but I have to agree with everyone and let you know that I love the new header.

Orange and grey is an amazing combo and I loved seeing all the varieties you featured.

Love your blog. Love your style. Love your fire. Love the color combo - does it come in a biggie size? How much time do you allot to your blog image searches? Your new banner is a great design, interesting, nice/funky type, however, I am not a fan of pink. How would your new banner look with a medium-light warm grey background? It's probably just me, I don't do pastels...

thanks all. i love you guys.
msSmart- i spend (usually) the entire week gathering images. some combos are more readily available in the design world's online image galleries- for others it's like finding a needle in a haystack. i want nothing more than to do combos like lavender and ochre, red and violet, emerald green and dove gray...but they just aren't out there !!! maybe one or two but that's not enough for me. these color combos are a color story. that's why i include non design related images.
some days it takes me about a day to gather all the images i need, it's all based on the aforementioned.
as for the new blog look, i LOVE pink. i had it in the beginning a pale gray but i was a little tired of gray as my original look was gray. then i made it a really pretty peachy pink, like a pink grapefruit which i liked but people were commenting that it was sickly. so i think everyone's computer reads a bit different. white was too bland and this pale pink seems to be the least offensive to everyone. but you. :)
it reads REALLY pale from my computer. barely there.
