It's a Blogover!

I can't believe that I haven't posted in so long - because it feels like I have been working on my blog in every spare second I've had this week - and doesn't it look fresh after it's Blogover!

I have to give a big thankyou to the good people who let me use their photos for my new header (L-R), Pilar Castro, Mabley Handler Interiors and Yozo Crafts.

I love the term Blogover - because it feels like I really have given my blog a complete makeover. I did all the work on this myself, preparing the new background, designing the new header, creating new pages and setting the blog up on it's very own domain. (Oh, and there's a button on the side if you want to grab one!) So now I simply must tell you what it is all about!

At the beginning of January I mentioned that I had some new projects coming up and most of them centre around why I've given the blog a facelift. If you've already had a nosy around you've probably picked up on the fact that I'm opening an online store.

However, that's not all that I'm doing. I'm very shortly going to be doing something I've wanted to do for ages - and that's sell clothes that I will be designing - in that store.

I know I've set myself a mammoth task doing this - so I'm also going to include accessories, handmade items and homewares from other people to complement what I'm going to do. I'm looking for things that are unique, vintage inspired and have a bit of modern country style - all the things that I love and a style that I know many of my bloggy friends share my enthusiasm for.

I'm really excited about this and I will be uploading things to the online store over the coming days and weeks - and of course I will let you know what's happening as things evolve and progress!

I hope you're having a great start to the week! xx

Your new look is so fab! I had an online store with my own designs - clothing and handbags - for 4 years. It was a blast!! Good luck on your new endeavor - I am sure it will be a wild success! XOL

It's gorgeous. I'm terrified of what I would produce if I tried. But I'm happy to share in your eye candy.

Did I say that I *love* your new look. You've gone stratosphere-cool!!

I was thinking of setting up my own domain like you have but I thought it might people having to be redirected....but I certainly wasn't coming here!!

Can you still use blogger to upload posts?
