new header, again

Yep. I changed my header again. Whenever I opened my page, the last one just didn't say to me, "yeah, that's it." And because I love play-play-playing, I made a new one. I plan to keep this one here for the winter.

I think.

If you're like me, you like change. If you're not - sorry to change things up so fast. I kept my curious little girl standing at the side, looking on. I think she needs to stick around.

But hey, this kind of change is free! And there's no waste piling up in a dump.

This one is so much better....I really like it!

photowannabe said...

Love your header...keep it, it really says the season beautifully.
I think that curious, learning girl is my granddaughter. She spends so much time writing and creating.
Change is good but can be hard sometimes.

Susan said...

It's so beautiful! But then, I think all your headers are beautiful.

Wrensong Farm said...

I LOVE your winter header, it really flows together!

shicat said...

oh, this I love. Just beautiful.

Anet said...

I love this one! Very wintery and you know I "heart" the little squirrel photo!
I am always changing my blog with the seasons. It's that "decorator" in me. Change is good Ruth!

Kerri said...

I really liked the last one! But I LOVE this one. The Wintery scenes are beautiful! I changed my header this week too :)

Vicki Holdwick said...

I'm lovin' it.

It really shows off the beauty of a winter in Michigan.

Ginnie said...

Besides, it's a great way to showcase several images at the same time in a soulful way, Ruth! :)

Donica said...

I like this one better than the other one....but I liked it too! Nothing wrong with change...it is the only way we have an opportunity to improve.

Barry said...

Makes me shiver and feel warm both at the same time.

Strange, but nice.

Sidney said...

Indeed... much better... this is a great header !

Ruth said...

Sharon, Donica and Sidney, I'm glad I went for the change, for your sakes too.

The previous one felt that it had no life in it, it just felt dead every time I opened it. This one feels more alive, even though it's winter.

Ruth said...

Sue, good for your granddaughter, and for you. Isn't it wondrous what has changed for girls and women since this little girl was drawn in the 1920s until your granddaughter's life? And that sure was hard won. I heard yesterday about a 100-year-old African American woman who will be going to the inauguration Jan. 20. She was born before blacks or women could vote.

Ruth said...

Susan, thank you, that's nice, because I wish that was all I had to do all day.

Ruth said...

Thanks, Wrensong! One of the fun things about Picasa collages is choosing and unchoosing photos until you get the right set, and then shuffling until they look right together. So your comment is perfect. :)

Ruth said...

Yay, Cathy, I like it when artists pay compliments. :)

Ruth said...

Anet, I thought you would "heart" Sniffy's cousin. He was so cute on a very cold day last February when I walked over to the Red Cedar on campus. Glad you like the header, and change too. I knew that about you.

Ruth said...

Thank you, Kerri. Your nuthatch is so sweet and soft.

Ruth said...

Thanks, Vicki. I almost don't get enough of Michigan winters. But wow, we've had it heavy and early this season.

Ruth said...

Boots, funny, because I didn't used to be a fan of photo collage. Maybe the ones I'd seen didn't flow for me. It's not easy to get the right photos that work together.

Ruth said...

Donica, I really did enjoy creating the previous one and learning on PS, so that alone was worth it.

Ruth said...

Barry, that's my feeling about winter precisely, so thank you for that.

hildegarde said...

Your new header is fantastic again, very beautiful winter images, each one is a superb photo. The holy woman carved in wood is marvelous.

ceanothe said...

L'hiver arrive !!!!
Tous au chaud, près du feu !

Gwen Buchanan said...

as far as I am concerned... you are Photographer of the Year!!!

Babs (Beetle) said...

Yes, I think this one is great!

I love change :O)

Loring Wirbel said...

I wouldn't go as far as Sharon in calling this one "so much better," but it seems seasonally appropriate!

Ruth said...

Thank you very much, Hildegarde.

Ruth said...

Ceanothe, cela est que j'aime!

Ruth said...

Gwen, that you think so is great praise! Thanks a million.

Ruth said...

Yay, Babs! Let's change everything!

Ruth said...

Thanks for that, Loring.

I can't seem to come up with a header I like as well as the autumn collage before the previous header (footer now), even though I keep trying. But I'll give it a rest, and maybe spring will present fresh horizons.

Bob Johnson said...

Bee You Tee Full, awesome, love the change, not that the other one wasn't cool as well.

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

I adore your new winter header. Magnificent rooster in the snow.

Ruth said...

Thanks, Bob! Rats, I didn't get a moon in there.

Ruth said...

Thanks so much, Pamela. Don's cuckoo marans (this one is a hen, but I agree she looks like a roo!) are magnificent.

VioletSky said...

Personally, I'm heading over to the blogs from Australia - they're all full of lovely summer flowers.

Ruth said...

Sanna, traitor!!

Christina said...

This header is gorgeous! For the life of me, I can't figure out how to drag a few pictures together for a new banner. I will have to study a bit harder, you will be proud of me. lol : )

Ruth said...

Christina, thank you! I owe it all to Picasa collage maker! Free, and easy.

Drowsey Monkey said...

I love the new header :) I like the one on your hubby's blog too.

Bob Johnson said...

Lol, hey maybe next one,lol

Ruth said...

Thanks, Drowsey!

Nice Santa hats on you and your "mom"!

Ruth said...

Ok, Bob. I do need to practice moon shots with this camera, haven't shot the moon since the Nikon.

Sandy said...

I like your header a lot. I like change too. I'll probably change mine soon. I want to try the collage thing one of these days, the new one on picasa. I only got that installed a few days ago, didn't know there was an update
