Banners and Headers for my Blog and other 'Profound' Subjects:)

Hello all my delightful readers. I have just put up a new header/banner. And it's in Pink. I do love Pink (and red too). And the last two headers/banners I did all by myself. I'm sure you're saying well 'big deal'. But for me learning how to do things on blogger has been daunting to say the least. Its a slow process to teach an old dog new tricks. I am, however, learning more and more each day so this is a real milestone for me. Now its on to widgets and  gadgets and more! (smile).

 These are my headers since I first started in mid November. And I'm sure there will be more in the future as time goes on. I really want to do one with some of my beautiful foods too since this blog is more about Food And Tables then anything else. But one step at a time here.            
 Tell Me Which One Do YOU like Best? And Why
(Please answer in comment section....nothing like putting you on the spot. Smile)

THANKS for joining me on my little journey through blog headers. I was just tickled that I actually got my second blog header/banner up by myself and wanted to share it with someone. And you dear readers are 'that' someone.


Pink Saturday

All are so pretty, Nann!

Hi Nann,

I've recently started following your blog. All the headers/banners are pretty, but I really love the new one. I just can't resist soft pinks, and your pink napkins and rose petals are lovely!

Have a great weekend!

They are all nice. I know I have changed mine a lot, I just like change, although I know many followers are not fond of change. I do prefer a banner that is not as wide, or long to scroll down, but that's just my preference. Hope you are well. Please come and share at Bacon Time's weekly fri-monday linky. We are on vacation at the coast, but saw your avatar and had to come check out your site.

Bliss said...

I like the one with several pictures in it. I like that "style". So I would pick the January 1-18th banner with several photos in it like that, even if they are different photos.


Mindie Hilton said...

What I meant by Avatar is I saw your little face pic on another blogs comment section. Those little profile pics are called avatars.
I would be happy to help you on a banner if you ever need any help. I would just need to know what pic(s) you would like to use. Thanks for the comment at Bacon Time, glad to have you at the linky.

Mindie Hilton said...

You can email me at if you do want help with the banner. I am out of town until Tuesday but could work on it when I get back.

I am so glad I'm not the only one having difficulty figuring all the ins and outs to blogging lol...sometimes it's SO frustrating.

I love all of your headers! I find it difficult to pick out a favorite. I am also working on a new header. Wish me luck! ;)

I love the beginning of Janauary one--I like that it is simple and black and white. They are all pretty! I am impressed you did them yourself--my daughter does mine. Like you say--it is hard for a old dog to learn new tricks. My kids are actually surprised I've mastered blogging!

Doll in the Looking Glass said...

The current banner is lovely. I love how delicate everything looks. But the Christmas collage of photos also catches my eye -- but that may be because of the vintage images. They are all pretty!


Linda @ A La Carte said...

Nann they are all pretty. I do love the newest one for the soft pinks! I too keep learning everyday and it's been a challenge for sure! I want to learn to do a banner with several photos but haven't done that yet.

Nellie said...

Nann, I really LOVE the new one! You have done such a lovely job on all of them that it is difficult to choose just one.

Unknown said...

I love the banner that you have now, although they are all lovely. It's fun to change from time to time.

Hi Nann! You are so talented figuring out this banner/header stuff! I rely on Cat at Paisley Cat Scraps! She is a real gem. I am not sure what to do when google reader ceases to exist! I tried to link up to a different site with no luck! Ugh!
Loved that I was able to stop by. Have a terrific week! Anne

Hi Nancy, they are all so cute and unique. Usually I would say the red & white February one. Just cause I love red. But after a second look, I couldn't choose. Hey, I think you are catching on pretty darn fast. I've wanted to learn how to put my name on my picks and haven't even tried to figure it out yet. And a button, I need to figure out a button. Especially since I have wanted to host a linky party ever since I first discovered them. Been waiting till I had more followers. Thinking I should jump in and swim soon. What do you think?

Michele said...

WOW! They are each so different and wonderful....but I have to say I realllllty love your new pink one, that's so beautiful!

Thanks so very much for your visit and very kind words. I know exactly how you felt and I have often wondered if I should be spending my time doing something else but blogging. But I have made so many freinds thru blogging and since Lynn took the time to let me know how I inspired her, I have changed my mind and realized that you never know who is looking at your blog and who you are reaching out to and touching through your blog. Lynn and I are becoming good friends and email each other quite often so we each have found a new friend.
I am so glad that you took the time to let me know how my story about Lynn has touched you and I think that your grandchildren will love reading about their grandmother. I did not know any of my grandmothers and I wish I had something or some way of learning about them.Your blog will be precious to them when they are older.
I do hope you are feeling better .
And by the way, I LOVE the first picture that is your current header. That tablescape is to die for!! But you know I am a pink gal!!

I love your banner, my favorite one is Jan 1-18. Love it's simplicity. But all of them are so beautiful. So jealous I can't change my out without a designer, my wordpress template doesn't allow that. Thanks for sharing your creative inspirations over at Sunday's Best.

Nann, you are lying about not knowing what you are doing! (Just kidding!) Your banners are all very eye catching. I've been blogging a year and a half now and I think I'm on my 3rd or 4th banner. Once I find one I like, I stick with it until me and everyone under the moon is sick of seeing it. Then I go crazy changing the background, colors, and the buttons to match. Silly I know!

I like the new pink button you have since I love soft colors, and the time implies hospitality and food, which you do so well on your blog.

Thanks for sharing your ideas on my party this week!


OMG! Such gorgeous banners and your new one is stunning! I'm not computer savvy, so I can't even change mine, lol. I have a daughter who does mine! Thanks for sharing. Can I be banner envious? Hugs,

I'm new to your blog via Marty's party. I think they are all lovely, & I'm amazed that you changed it so many times. I've had the same one for over a year, because I won a give-away of having a graphic artist design one for me. I'm so chicken to try to change it. You give me hope. I'm a new follower via the LF & hope you might visit my blog and follow back.

Sarah said...

I think my favorite is January 1-18 but they are all pretty. Especially the table setting in your newest header, it's so cute!

BTW I'm stopping over from the newbie party and I love your blog. I'm your newest member!
I'd love for you to stop by and check out my blog too!
