My Fairy Blog Mother

 

As you can see, I had a Fairy Blog Mother busily working away since I was last here. She has done such a lot of tidying up and getting things back to working order. Her name is Linda and she blogs at *Life and Linda.* It's a beautiful blog as you might imagine. I have seen a number of blogs around Blogdom of late that she has worked with and was most impressed, yet it was visiting her own blog that cinched it for me. If you ever need help, tell her I sent you!

So autumn has arrived while I was fussing over less lovely things...

My grandmother's tea pot with the sweet little house. (I broke the lid while visiting her one day.) 


A beautiful day to you...thank you for putting up with me!

  7. So glad Linda has gotten your blog all back in order.
    We all need to call on our Fairy Godmothers once in a while..
    Your home is looking all Fallish now.
    I really like the teapot story! You must think of your g'mother whenever you look at it.

  25. My word for this post is LOVELY. Lovely new look, lovely photos, lovely Linda.

  26. Oh I just love that photo at the farm stand. The light is so beautiful in it. And I love your cabinet (mantel) top and the sweet teapot. Your blog looks great but the background music sheet is only showing a bit at the top on either side and the rest is grey. I'm not sure if that's the look or not. I like that you added your labels at the bottom of the page. I might just do that too. I should do some blog house cleaning. I have too many photos on my side bar. A good evening to you. Pam

    1. Pam, are you on your PC or iPad? iPads don't show the entire background.

  27. Vee, i change blogs with seasons so I hope you will come visit my autumn blog! Your background is beautiful! Thank you for referring us newbies to Linda!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Everyone can use a fairly blogmother! I'm seeing the same as Pam from my laptop - only a tiny bit of sheet music at the top. Should it be an entire background?
    I love the first photo with the sunbeams, fall mums and pumpkins.
    Nice to have someone take the frazzle out of life isn't it? :-)

  32. Oh Bless dear Linda and thank you Vee for sharing her details - I've noted it for safe keeping.
    Love all those pumpkins and mums at the farm stand - a spectacular autumn display!

  34. Linda did a wonderful job. I love your little pumpkin in the teapot!

  35. Glad Linda was so helpful. I love the little tea pot with the pumpkin. I see cute tea pots and sugar dishes all the time at thrift stores with NO lid...now I know what I can do with them.

  36. Three cheers for Linda! She did a splendid job for you, and I hope that you are now breathing a sigh of relief.

  37. Oh, how lovely to have found a Fairy Blog Mother! That sounds much better than the fretting and gnashing of teeth and exasperation with all things technical. BOO to that...and YAY to pretty solutions! Did I hear you breathe a sigh of relief?

    I love your Catherine Holman print! It is a perfect focal point for your charming autumn vignette.

  38. I love your photo of the farmstand, Vee! It is just magical, as new England in autumn always is.

    I'm so glad you found help for your blog format. It's very pretty, and professional looking.

  39. LOVE that beautiful music background. Glad Linda waved her magic wand and put some peace into your soul for your blog.

    Going to farms and seeing pumpkins is so much fun - that is an awesome pic.

    Happy Autumn, Vee!!

  42. I'm loving the photo of the fall farmstead in Maine! Oh...and your new and improved blog format. Thanks for telling us your secrets...and who to go visit when blog help is required.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That fall farmstand is beautiful! It's always good to know there is help if we need it. I recently was stumped on the mgcc blog. Thankfully it is fixed.
    Are you in for a weather experience? I saw a Weather Channel alert..and wasn't sure if it would come close to you or not.

  44. I am on my iPhone right now waiting outside of Rachel's cello lesson. I'll be back to comment again after I see it in the computer, but I'm certain it's lovely! Hurray for fairy blog mothers!

  45. Hi Vee,

    I love your new header, and the photos in this post are gorgeous. I just started to get my Fall decorations in order. Yesterday I took RJ to get some pumpkins, today I'll get some mums. Isn't this time of year glorious? I have been meaning to e-mail you and ask how to set up the reply function on my comments. At least if I don't have time to visit, I can at least leave a reply on my post.

    Well, you always seem to have the head start on seasons. Have a beautiful day.

    Karen

  46. Oh I so need a fairy blog mother...my page design is so boring!~ Love your new look!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Don't know if you'll see this since I'm late getting here, but I wanted to tell you that I really love the look of the blog. The sheet music background is so "you". I also read of the previous blogger troubles and wanted to tell you that I can relate completely. I changed mine a while back, and it was the font and font colors that went kerwobbly for me. I had to get my daughter to try to fix it, and from that point on, I got nervous just changing a header.

    Saw your Cruz post but will email instead of comment as per suggestion.

  48. Woohoo Vee!! This looks great, and I'm so glad you're happy with it! Linda does seem like a real sweetheart, and she has helped some of my other blog friends, Kitty @ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen and Barbara @ Two Birdies and A B. I love your sheet music background -- it's so you. Most of all, I'm glad you're not going to walk away from your blog. :-D

    I just cannot get over your first photo in this post -- it looks straight out of a magazine. Gorgeous! The colors are lovely and the light is perfect! I love your other two pics, too -- such cozy fall home scenes. Have a great day my friend!

    Hugs,

  49. Your new blog look is just beautiful and the teapot ...I know its precious to you. The fall colors are glorious and makes me wish ...Sometimes...not all the time...that we had beautiful falls down here in South Miss. Not that its ugly down here...LOL,
    blessings,
