New header for Sea Witch

Those of you who have been stopping by my blog over the last few weeks have seen first hand my wrestling matches with shifting backgrounds, funny fonts, and header placement issues. I finally got those pesky little html problems corrected and then began to work on my header design. The more I played with it the more it began to look like the logo for another installment of Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean." (side note--however, if this would bring Johnny Depp back for another pirate romp I will gladly put it back up)

Photobucket

So I dumped the Disney look and decided to use different photos that I have shot under the seas or around aquariums. After all, a Sea Witch really should share her time under the sea with others. I like the clean look of the new header and with the new font for the narrative text making it easier to read. Now all I have to do is tweak the color/hue of the header title. (made these header changes on my lunch break and didn't have time to finish the tweaking...look for final tweaks this week) .

As the direction of the wind changes in my world, I will also change out the photo. You will have to periodically stop by to see what swims to the surface.

Just popped by for a peek. Love the new whole look and layout of your blog. I'm so in love with the sea and wish I wasn't thousands of miles away from the shore. Have a great Wednesday.

OMG Dari, thank you so much for the Pay it Foward gifts. I LOVE everything! Those gardening gloves are "THE BOMB" and I can't wait to wear that brooch. Everything was "so me" and "so French". It's funny how a person you don't even know can pick up on your interests--those glove colors are my all time favorite summer colors to wear! I am putting the Eiffel Tower snowglobe on my fireplace mantle. I think I will just enjoy the smell of that soap for awhile. It is too wonderful!! That was such a sweet letter that you enclosed and the inclusion of the scallop shell from a sea witch--a thousand words without speaking--LOVED IT! I appreciate your kindness so much. I posted about it on my Friday blog so you must go over and take a look! I hope I did the contents justice--my photography is not the best.

I do love the idea of you using your own pics for your blog header. I am sure you have some awesome ones to share! I like your new look!

Thanks for sharing your life with us!
