The New (Winter?) Look

You're probably all getting tired of these posts documenting my new blog designs.  I'm sorry for that.  And I feel for you.  I really do.  It's just that I can't help myself.  (That's a lie.  She could totally help herself if she tried.)  Oh, very well, perhaps I could.  But the thing is, it's such a nice easy excuse for a post, and it makes my number of posts for the month go up with very little effort on my part, and well...I like that.
 
So yeah.  This is another boring post from my home to yours. I hope you enjoy it.  (Do you enjoy being bored?  There must be someone out there who does.)

The Header:

 
The Background:


And by the way, the reason my post title is uncertain about the winteriness of this new layout is because...well, it doesn't look very wintery, does it?  I assure you, I meant it to be wintery.  When I started out I had the best of intentions for it to match the current season.  Honestly.  I chose pictures with frost covered windows, for goodness sake.  It was going to be a snow-themed, cozy cottage-type layout. 
 
But then Emma Woodhouse came along with a splash of spring, and my favorite pinkish colors just wouldn't stop pushing their way in, and before I knew where I was, I was choosing a flowery background and all my wintery plans had flown straight out the window.  (It was bound to happen, you know.  Choose a header with so many windows, what else can you expect?)  You're nutty(I know.
 
So this is what we've got, and this is what we're going to stick with.  For now at least.

Do you have trouble with your layouts turning out completely different than you
originally envisioned? 
Are you a stickler for your blog matching the current season of the year? 
How was your first week of 2017?

  1. Wintery or not, this is lovely. I think it's encouraging me to go ahead and change my blog design to spring, because I'm not terribly motivated to create another winter theme. :P

    PS. I love how they're all at windows! :)

    1. Thanks, Natalie! :) Oh, yeah. I can understand that. After all, you put a lot of effort into your last blog design, and it was so perfect. Seems like it would be kind of hard to come up with yet another winter theme. (I mean, I had trouble anyway. Haha. ;))

      P.S. Yeah, I was rather pleased with how that turned out, too. I hadn't planned it originally. :)

  2. The new look is absolutely charming! I think it fits with the name "Sunshiny Corner". (And I do these kinds of posts, too, just as you said:)

    1. Thank you so much, Cordy! Never mind whether you're an authority on the subject or not, if you think it's good, I'm more than satisfied. :)

      Thanks for your comment!

  6. Amazing as usual, Miss March! You're giving me a case of blog envy, I'm afraid. :P And though it's not what one would first think of as a wintry design, I still get winter vibes; maybe like a January thaw? Or maybe it's just so fresh looking so it matches the newness of 2017? (There I go again, philosophising on other people's blog layouts!!) I'm a semi-stickler for my blog to match the seasons, but then again, I've only had a handful of changes over a year. Plus I think there are plenty of times when a generic, pretty layout will suffice, no matter the season. :)

    1. Oh, dear. I'm sorry. I did NOT mean to do that. ;P Thank you, though! I'm so pleased you like it. And for the record, you always have beautiful blog designs. I can't remember if I commented on your current one, but you certainly managed to capture a beautiful winter look...for which I commend you. *claps hands*

      Oh, but I love your way of philosophizing. I did feel like it had a tiny bit of a winter feel to it, but you described it much better than I could! :)

      Thank you so much for your comment, Abby! :D

  8. You have to do a post about your new look every time you change it because then you can always go to that post and look at it! I love this look!!!

  9. I LOVE your new header! (And have no idea how you have the energy to make new ones for each season, ohmygoodness!!!) I also liked how you walked us through how you made it, like a tutorial. Would love to see more posts like this one in the future!
