    Playing..

    With a new blog look - not entirely sure at the moment, still fiddling ( but about to go to bed )
    Wanted to go a bit more 'autumnal'.

    Let me know if it's crap, of if you can't read the text, or whatnot.

    Husband says the header should be on a lighter background and not 'blend in', but then, husband would rather I stop annoying him so he can watch the tv in peace, and he's squinting at the screen from a mile away.

    Also about to go to bed...

    I love the banner & brown is my favourite colour.

    Maybe a bit hard to read after a couple of pretty drinks.

    Really love the banner. Classy.
    :)
    Found the dark text on dark background hard to read.

    I love the header, but maybe a border around it might make it stand out a bit more?
    Also found the text a bit hard to read, but I love the colours.

    Definitely love the banner but think the text of your post needs to be black.

    You are clever!

    certainly you have achieved the look of autumn, but I'll echo that the text is difficult to read.

    I'll echo what everyone else has said but I do love it... A border around the banner prehaps...

    ok - thanks.

    still playing, about to go out.

    Oh, and it's winter apparently. I think I live in a fuzzy haze, so let's drop the 'autumnal' thing.

    I just like autumn is all.
    My excuse and sticking to it !

    Good look. Make sure you squint and say "Whatever, looks great" the next time hubby asks you how you like the new shiny hubcaps or something.

    Suse said...

    Well it's not hard to read from here, which I suspect means you've altered it since the others commented.

    Pretty blue! ;)

    Gotta agree with the husband I'm afraid - its a bit hard to read.
    Slip a bit of orange or red somewhere in there and you'll have me.
    You are too clever though, I'd stuff mine up completely if I tried to play around with it.

    Julia said...

    Love the new look. Find it easy to read. Very sophisticated!

    h&b said...

    Stacey - I should have played with it in my 'test blog' first .. but I was tired and not thinking, and lost the old template, so have to annoying fiddle around in here for all to see :(

    Bah !

    Louise said...

    The photo of your boys is wonderful!! The screen appears almost B&W to me with very little colour. It's fine to read though.

    Stomper Girl said...

    Um, I know I'm late to this and I do like your autumn tones, but I only see the top of Number#2's head so I think I'm not seeing your whole banner? which could be my computer not your template of course.
