Redecorating here

I needed coffee. What do you think?

I love it!

You knew I would,though. ;)

Theresa said...

Mmmmm,coffee...I can almost smell it!

Very nice, but not as good as actually having that hot, delicious beverage in front of you... dosed with a good bit of cream and maybe a touch of cinnamon... why don't computer screens have a scrath 'n sniff feature?

Tracy said...

Love it, except that now I want coffee!

Donna said...

It's great...but, where is the chocolate?

Karen E. said...

Oooh, good point, Donna. And a scratch-n-sniff coffee and chocolate picture? I'll see what I can do. ;-)
Thanks, all!

Great shot... I am enjoying a cup IRL as I blog!

Alice said...

Love it!

Karen, you are my type of gal!

Mary Ellen Barrett said...

Love it too. How did you do it?? I find blogger impossible.

I use the "Minima" template, and I went to the "Settings" tab, under "basic." Then, under the Description, instead of text, I entered:

img src=""/

with the url for the photo inserted between the quote marks that you see above. Also, add html tags at the beginning and end -- I tried to post the comment that way, but Blogger won't let me put in the actual code.

I'd used this photo in a post before, so I just went to the post and used the url from there.


What I haven't figured out is how to otherwise stretch or manipulate the photo, or how to layer text over it -- I'm an idiot there. I like the way this looks, though, given my limited abilities. :-)

Ooh, Karen, LOVE the coffee banner! It's just what I need to see when I stop in at 5 a.m. ;)

Margaret in Minnesota said...

Yay!!! You posted (FINALLY) a photo! (I was going to ask but didn't want to be a nag...)

It's so nice to have a face for the name. You made my day.

Well, yes, Margaret, there's a photo, but it was a bad hair day. I was waiting for three things to come together: good hair day, eyes open *and* a smile. I can't seem to get all three in one picture, though, so I decided to take two outta three .... :-)
