I've been redecorating

R.I.P Old friend

Today, my knight in shining armor tech geek of a husband helped me change blog templates. I thought it was time for an update, a little nip and tuck, some renovation - aw hell, I was actually just bored with the look of it.

So tell me, Dumplings, what do you think of the place?

P.S. I'm still working on the blog roll. If I've inadvertently left you off, you have my deepest apologies. Just leave a note in the comments and I'll remedy the situation tout suite.

Its very handsome, love the colours.... orange and grey, I may steal that.
Obviously the wallpaper stripping has got you going!

Love the new look! It's so fresh and you know how I feel about orange. That's one talented husband you've got there. I don't think mine could even find my blog if someone asked him(!)

David said...

And you have a last name now! I like the new look, and it makes me realize how badly MidMal needs a facelift.

Pam Kersting said...

It's lovely! Good on you!

amy @ switz~art said...

The new format rocks! Love it!

sherri said...

susieq said...

You know I love some orange + gray! Love the " + " bullets too. And your banner. Wonderful facelift!

Mark said...

Not sure why that happened!?

Debi said...

Very nicely done. I love the subheads in the grey reverse.

Leigh said...

Sweet!

Love it! See, LarBear is very helpful ;)

karly / design-crisis.com said...

love it! A++ LarBear. DC could use a little buff and shine, too... this could be just the motivation I need

david john said...

loving the look! look for me on twitter too!

pillow mint said...

LOVE it!
i put a dumb little picture in my header and made my background gray the other day - just for a change up.
i didn't dare ask for feedback! tech-smart i am not.

pillow mint said...

p.s. is it me, or are your photos bigger now?

Raina Cox said...

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words!

PM - The photos aren't any larger, just a nice optical illusion.

hello gorgeous said...

Yes - love it!!

Miss you, babycakes! Hope all is well in CO!

Camilla @ Designalogue Blog said...

Fancy! looking very snazzy!
Please send hubby down yonder so he can fix mine up toot sweet! Its all seemed just to hard its ignored!

Robin said...

I like the new digs!

Designers' Brew said...

Love the orange and gray, but I miss the banner image... :(

Designers' Brew said...

Oh, and let's be honest: I miss my celebrity/VIP status as a Daily Read. ;)

nkp said...

I think it's effin' fabulous! That LB sure is handy. Is he traveling in your suitcase come 2010 for our visit in the ATL? My blog could use some freshening up and my menz would keep him occupied? ;0)

Since DB already said it, I'll second the sentiment...I did feel a bit of a celebrity. But I lurv your new digs nonetheless!

Yana said...

I love how it reminds me of a newspaper!

[on a side note, i was once a person 'who got it' and I was honored! if you'll have me again, Raina, i'd love to join the ranks once more.

cheers :)

Raina Cox said...

I'm so so sorry, Yana. The oversight has been corrected.

Thanks for letting me know!

Yana said...

no, thank you! :)
i was timid to say something even though you asked. it felt like going to a friends how and trying on their clothes...or getting food out of their fridge and saying, you don't mind, right?

haha

Jill said...

It looks very fresh! I've been a bit under the weather, so I haven't been reading many blogs lately. This was a nice surprise!
