There is something catching in blogland, the re-design of some of my favorite places to stop. Both Snap and Sherry Lee have new looks and oddly enough, so similar to what I, too, am trying to dream up. After visiting Beth's two blogs with some regularity, I contacted her to talk about the designs for her templates. I find them airy, spare but not empty, clean, just so refreshing. And as much as I liked my own new look, I feel as if I have out grown it already. It's back to basics, lots of white, lots of space to move and grow. Ha! Not so easy, but Beth is helping me out and with some luck and lots of hard work and coding (groan) I hope to be looking very different again by the end of the month. But in keeping with this simple theme, here is a photo of one of the feathers I have found recently, one very beautiful one, I think it's from a downy woodpecker (we certainly have enough of them):
This is a color shot, taken by laying the feather on a white piece of paper. The perfect polka dots amaze me.
