just because

Evidently it's Wednesday... I forget that sometimes because I work midnights and sometimes the days just kind of blend together.

Apparently it's 79˚F, and the skies are sort of overcast and yet sunny — so there's that atmospheric light. It's humid, but it isn't ridiculous. It's warm, but it isn't sweltering. It's just nice...











And I've been sitting here, working at the computer this morning, indoors... until I finished what I was working on — which, as it turns out was the new background for my blog — which you may have noticed if you've been here before. There used to be a lot of #867cbb around here. But then I was meandering around my blogger profile or the blogs that I follow or something — and I opened this blog: http://bittersweet-enmi.blogspot.com/
And, yes, I was envious — in that I wanted a background and something maybe a little less generic — because her blog just looks cool.

So, yes, it's summer and it's nice outside and I've been sitting here at my computer tinkering and copying and pasting from my files like as if the design layout of my blog was the only thing that mattered... and actually, I didn't change the layout — I just changed the colors, made a new header and assembled 100 square samples of my work together into one large grid to make a new background — since I finally figured out that blogger will let me upload my own picture for the background.

So, thank you, Emmy Wahlback, for the inspiration.
And now, I suppose it's time to get back to cutting out butterflies... or maybe I'll go outside again.

Enjoy your summer, and the wondrous things that exist just outside the back door.

Oooops, got so caught up in your new design that i forgot to say how much I love these photographs. My favorite is the doorknob. It is a wonderful composition.

Great photos, Sarah. The lighting is just right.

Love your background too. My blog layout is so wide, you really can't see any background.

The doorknob is my favourite!

Beautiful photos, and now I have background envy! It really does look cool, and is eye-catching, but not distracting. Good job:-)

Love that image of the doorknob. They are all lovely but that one really catches the eye.

I wonder myself sometimes where time goes and what day it is. Time has been a bit strange since I started working for myself.

Thank you for your comment on my blog and for visiting!!!

I love the colors in all your photos here Sarah. So wonderful. I think the first one is my favorite.

Hmm.... perhaps we should move our computers out to our garden... ? ;)

Happy Thursday!

I really really love your new background! And the shade of purple is lovely and surely gives your blog a recognition value :)

That's a great idea and it looks wonderful. So cool that your art is displayed in this way. I love the doorknob image.

Your doorknob is an invitation!

Your new background is fascinating.
