About My New Rose Border.......

I have had several blog friends ask how I got my new rose border on my blog. This is something I'd been wanting to do for quite awhile, but could not figure out how on my own. I found some instructions at The Cutest Blog on the Block. Click on that and look for "how to make your own background". I must admit, it took me awhile, even with the instructions, because I don't have photoshop (I have Picture It). I finally figured it out though, so I bet all of you can too, as I'm not extremely computer-savvy! Let me know if you make a new blog border; I'd love to see!! :)

And for you fellow Christmas fanatics, don't forget to check my new Christmas blog; I add new posts almost daily.

I want to try but I'm a little afraid. Maybe when all the little ones are napping today? Maybe!

I love your background. Your blog is very pretty.
I love that Christmas stocking!

Marilyn said...

I used the same instructions from my background and center page from that website. They are the cutest

Thanks for the well wishes! I felt better this afternoon but as it's getting later I start stopping up and getting more congested....yuck! More alka seltzer

Thanks again,


Your bannner/header is very sweet. I made my own and will try to make a new one for Thanksgiving. It's fun and I'm not a computer gal either. I just kepted at it :)
Really love all your treasure from the day before:) I just love the hunt and then the Finds :)

Your entire blog is just lovely.

Perhaps the bluebird pillow was waiting for the right home as it did not sell. Are you interested in a swap of fun things?


I found your blog through Linda's. I have enjoyed looking at all your treasures. It was almost like going back to my Grandma's house again!

Everything is so dreamy here. I have to check out your Christmas blog.

GASP! I loved your blog as it was coming up! Your header is pure delight, and your border is 2LIVE4! Divine! Worth ALL your hard work!

Thank you so much for stopping by -- I'm going to add both your blogs to my blog roll so I can keep up with you!

Warmest regards, Ronda

You did it! Good for you. The sides look nice. My son helped me add it on my blog, cut then I didn't like it. LOL

Ohhh, I love your rose border's perfect. Love all of these pretties you have posted too. That shoe is adorable! By the way, I've got an award for you, stop over when you get the chance and pick it up. Hope you have a great night!

Lori said...

How funny is that! I have been trying to figure out the same border at the same site and no luck! I spent about 45 minutes one evening!! It looks great ! Love,Lori

I wonder what's wrong with my computer that I can't see any rose border on your blog!
