out with the old, in with the new

well, i haven't had this peony banner for summer very long. but then, it doesn't really feel like summer around here, either. we have had no hot weather yet. it's very strange. i'm a heat and sun girl, so i'm rather missing the typical july weather we usually have in chicago-land.

i may be wishing i could take this all back if we get some in-the-90s temps in august. but right now, i'm wishing we could make it into the upper 80s at least.

anyway, i'm switching banners, because i like the look of the new one better—it's more me. when i used these new photos in a post a couple days ago, i had not put them together with a new banner in mind. but i like this diptych so much, i decided to use it as my banner.

have a happy weekend, all!

grounded with her head in the clouds - beautiful

i love the new banner

sarahtay said...

either way, all your headers are always looking pretty! :) and yes, i do believe that banners/headers should totally reflect the writer's personality - like mine, i guess. hehe. :)) gives a more personal touch to the blog.

in my country, it's always scorching hot! i'd love for winter to come by though it's highly unlikely. we only have one season - hot and wet (plus humid) all year round. doesn't sound too appealing, huh. hehe.

happy soon-to-come monday, georgia! x

looks great! i like the bottom half of it - thats a really interesting shot!

I like your new banner, too, but also like the old one. I selfishly hope that it's still a little cool in the midwest when I go there the last week of August. It would be a welcome respite from the heat and humidity in Phoenix. It's generally fairly miserable when I go back there so I'm sure it will be this year, too :)

it's been near 100F or over almost every day in kansas all summer. i'm not complaining. love the heat. hate the cold.

your new banner is pretty.

Claire said...

g i would have to say that this banner talks of the g that i have gotten to know. i like it very much!

Liss said...

I like the new banner and it always nice to have a change every so often.

I've been thinking of changing my blog up. Just got to find the time and motivation to do so

Meri said...

I love peonies, but change is good. I need to revise my banner. . . it's beginning to bore me. But I'm so busy creating that I barely have time to read blogs. Where will I find the time?

joyce said...

I wish I could send some heat your way, because I am melting. Yesterday it was 36, which I have no idea what that is in fahrenheit, but it was hot for here! I liked the peonies too. I don't think my template allows for a banner, in any case i want a change too.

hey, thanks for your comment on my blog! i know...i am so very behind on blogging! the past couple of weeks i have just felt...tired...and wanted to take a break from it! haha. i'll be back soon, though.

yes..i love those verses in matthew. they are very beautiful and so simple and so encouraging. anyway..hope you're having a lovely week!

oh yeah, i feel you on the summer thing. we didn't get any hot weather until the middle of june and i was very gripey about the whole thing. i love cloudy rainy days well enough...but you know, once in a while! not every day, not in summer! and then it finally got hot..and i wouldn't mind getting the clouds back. ;) haha. the grass is always greener...well you know. hehe.
