And While I Was Away ~ ~ ~

As you can see, at least I hope you can - Lord knows these days with Blogger - there are a few changes with my blog!  First the color ~ it's a bit brighter, used a different script, honestly I haven't figured out what else!

I fixed dinner, my Sweetie and I watched a program, then he went back to work and I looked at my blog, and honestly - thought I was on someone else's page  -  IT WAS BLUE!!   With blue writing, barely seen through the blue on blue background.

So, what's a girl to do?  Well, I don't know - so I went in and of course with the new Blogger, nothing is the same in the design section (that's the inside part for those like me who know nothing about the design section!) so I tinkered around for a half an hour, said darn, and saved what I had tinkered with and tried to fix.  

However, it's a bit blinding now.  My original color is gone from the back ground selection.  So, tomorrow I will take another look in daylight and see if it's still blinding, or if it's just because I'm tired and frustrated.  I will go over to the blogger I introduced you all to a few posts back - she has some great tutorials.  So, I'll be looking at her blog, AGAIN!

May I ask - has anyone else had this problem??

Also, what do you think of the changes I did make??

Who better to ask than friends who look at my page from the other side?

I hope you all had a wonderful start to a marvelous week!  I have seen so many blogs reminding us, "It's only six months til Christmas!"  I don't know about you, but I'm not running out to do any Christmas shopping.  I will admit, I look for those special gifts for those special people all year long, but with birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparent's Day, Easter, Valentine's Day, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Veteran's Day, Flag Day, I just love you days - I'll still need to go shopping in time for Christmas!  But, thanks to all who are reminding us - now I guess we'll start to see countdown clocks!

HAPPY JUNE everyone!
Lots of hugs,

PS  I just added the images throughout my post and the original color popped back on my screen - I'm really confused.  I guess it will just be a surprise each time??  Don't know what to think - I haven't a clue - maybe it will be a rainbow tomorrow.  I changed it to my favorite colors, though a bit bright - pinks!  Oh heavens!!

PPSS  Sneaky Momma - I'll be at your blog as soon as I can in the morning - now, after deleting some spaces, I've ended up with highlighting blocks around the paragraphs under the images - really - oh heavens!!

  3. I haven't had this least not yet. It's all very pretty! I do have a bit of a problem reading the script though.

  4. My sweet Donna,
    I haven't got this before, although not less problems with Blogger came to me so far. Hope you can find some help from that site, how frustrated to find the way to fix I know. I told myself to re-new my blog interface from time to time, but still have no time for it. Yours looks beautiful!
    Have a great "June's Special Day"!!!
    Much love and hugs,
    LS xoxoxoxo

  5. Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment on my Fairy Myst posting. Email me at with a mailing address, I'd like to send you a fairy!

  6. Hi Donna,

    Everything looks lovely and you have more courage than I do. I learned early on not to touch anything as you never know what could happen ... lol. Thank you for all your visits and wonderful comments.

  7. Your blog looks beautiful on this end Donna! I haven't had that problem....knock on wood....LOL! Enjoy your day, Gail

  8. I think your blog looks beautiful today!! As far as Blogger, I just go with the flow. It is still possible to change back and forth to the old format which is what I do from time to time.

  9. It looks beautiful, Donna. I am still using the old blogger myself...and probably will till they shut me out-lol

    You asked for honest opinions. I love all the design and the color but the print size comes up REALLY small for me. Maybe it is just my computer? There are a couple other blogs that print up really small for me too...not sure why-

    Hope you are having a good week so far...We are still in the mountains with limited access. xo Diana
