Wednesday is Rednesday and a new background, oh Joy!

My kitchen chairs and table....would you join me for a cup of tea?

Do you see this wonderful background? Isn't it amazing? I just love the colors. Yesterday, I posted about my sterile and sad looking blog. There was a glitch in code for my background design. I had spent weeks trying to address the matter, all to no avail. So I asked for your help and did you deliver. Thank you all, especially my friends Linda @ A la Carte and Carol @ Old Glory Cottage for their kind thoughts and suggestions. It helped. But a big thank you goes to April @ Abramyan Avenue for telling me all about Brooke @ Babbling Brooke Blog Custom Designs. Brooke is a genius. To make it simple, she found a leftover background widget on top of another widget. I was never going to have a background in place until that got deleted. You had to be able to read code to have found it. Now I can cut and paste code, but reading code is like reading a foreign language.... I am clueless.

This nice lady, that I just met, took the time to solve my background mystery. I know it may seem silly to you that a missing background was causing me so much stress, but honestly, it would be like coming to my house and not having a single curtain in the window. I want my blog to be inviting. So thank you Brooke for helping me put my "curtains" up. By the way, they are a Brooke custom design. Perfect timing, Brooke is having a giveaway over at her Custom Designs Blog. I am entering for a chance for background and banner make-over. After all the effort she put in yesterday on my behalf, as a blogging friend, helping another, you better believe that win or not, a new look will be coming to my blog. Thank you Brooke.

I thought it would be fitting today to show some red and turquoise (from my kitchen) that match my new background. Since there is a little red and I haven't been over in a while to her party, I am joining Sue @ Its a Very Cherry World for Wednesday is Rednesday. The cherry red posts always bring a smile and with my new background in place, I have all the more reason to smile. Thank you.

Got it at Goodwill

Love, Love those kitchen chairs. I've always thought a red and chrome kitchen would be such a bright cheery design.

Glad you resolved your blog design blues. Looks great.

I love those chairs but most of all, you have my favorite color combination, red and aqua. It all started with blogging and now I'm hooked.

Happy REDnesday!

Sherrie, I'm so happy for you, that your blog is looking all pretty again! I think we can all relate, that when something goes wonky with our blogs, we are NOT happy! I love that wall in your kitchen, because that color combo is my favorite these days!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol

I love your new design! I ran right over to Brooke's to sign up for the giveaway! My blog has been neglected for the past year, but I want to restart it and a new look would give me lots of motivation!

Hi Sherrie,
First, I'd gladly sit at your kitchen table...love it and am very envious of it!!
Your background is just great.:o) I know the woes of backgrounds, hubby and I recently spent a good 48 hours trying to figure it all out. He's much better than me though and it bugged him more than me so he didn't let it defeat him!!Thank goodness.
Happy Rednesday!
Fondly,
Ann
