my name is Darlene and....

...I am addicted to constantly changing my blog header! Perhaps you have noticed!? I don't know why but I think it is so fun to keep making new ones. I have probably had like 10 of them and it hasn't even been a year since I started a blog! I really like the one I have now because it is my house, and I enjoy the old timey quality of the picture. I guess that moving into this home in an area that is historic and picturesque has been the catalyst for my creative juices to begin flowing.
I love that my home has character, wood floors, high ceilings, old fashioned molding, six panel doors, glass door knobs three fireplaces (non working) and a fantastic front porch. When I lived in Florida, I pretended to have those things and decorated my square blockish homes accordingly. (that was not so common for homes in FLA!) So...even though I love this header...I don't know how long it will last until I make another one!
You see, I also really love bird images and any sepia toned thing, so who knows when everything will change again! (perhaps I can get a bird image on my sepia house image...hmm...)
Thanks for understanding my compulsions!


  1. I know the feeling - it's taken me ages to find the background that I wanted to keep so before this I kept playing with my background and the header x

  2. I do that too! I always stick with the Betsy McCall thing, even though that look isn't really working in my shop anymore. I can't help myself.
    Your house sounds beautiful. Before I got divorced, we owned a gorgeous 1920's bungalow that had shiny wood molding everywhere, a brick fireplace, awesome wide pine plank floors, a sunroom, and *my fav part* push button switches! *sniff*
    ANYWAY, I love all your headers!

  3. I try to change my header photo once a month. I was a little late this month but it's up now.

    Love your house - such character. And glass door knobs! I'm so jealous.
