It's a good time of year to update the blog. I really need to update my header. Like desperately! The pics are 1 year old this month!

Love Bette!

Whats a blog button? BTW -- our weather stick....we got ours at a local bird food store but you can get them online. Vermont Country Store or Amazon. They are so cool!

Hi there Sandie. Your blog is looking really good at the moment! I do follow you, and I do have a blog button. You will see it on my blog page (Southhamsdarling). Thank you!

Cheri said...

Love the winter scene, wish we had had that when we were north for Christmas. I only miss it (snow) for the holidays, so don't think I have lost my mind completely.

Nancy said...

Your new header is beautiful....It's always good to freshen up at the beginning of the year...I did the same thing....

Yes, I do have a blog button. You can get it on my sidebar....

I look forward to our visits in this new year....

I really need to update too!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Your header photo is beautiful. I don't have a blog button. I need to do something different with my sidebar, but unsure what to do. My blogroll is getting too long.
Enjoy your day!

Dar said...

I cranked the volume, let lovely Bette sing first, hit the repeat button and sang along. Thanks.

And yes, we follow one another dear Chatty Crone.

Love the header photo, Sandie. Looks like New England after a snowstorm.

Nice song, too.

Take care and have a terrific Thursday. Susan

I'll just tune in with some of the others...what's a blog button? lol (Perhaps I'll Google it.)

Janie Fox said...

I am there. I know nothing about how to do any of that kind of stuff. I guess I should try to learn! Yours looks great!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

You know I follow... but I have no fancy button... ;) blessings ~ Tanna

Love that song. Makes me think I should watch Beaches today! You have my buttons, thank you. Have a perfect day....

GrammyK said...

No blog button yet--but if I get one I'll send it to you. :-)

Retired English Teacher said...

No blog button here yet either. When I am over my slight head injury, I plan on making one and updating my blog also.

Yours is looking mighty spiffy.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Beautiful song, and she needs to put another several out! And you have my button. :)

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

I'm feeling like I need a redesign too. Must be the new year. I like your whimsy though. Don't change that. It always makes me smile.

The Boston Lady said...

Gorgeous picture Sandie and I love Bette Midler... How do you make a blog button? I can't believe I have to ask that question.... Ann

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I didn't realize it snowed that much in Georgia! :) Pretty header.

Ann said...

The blog is looking great Sandie. I love looking at snow in pictures :)
No blog button for me, never got around to making one

Andrew said...

Wonderful to see Sandie..xx

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I love that photo at the top of your blog! Beautiful! I do have a blog button! Hope you had a great day!

Angela said...

Your blog looks great to me! Love that snow header! I have so got to make a button for my blog. Once I get one made I'll let you know. I just need to pick out a picture I want to use. That's the hard decision. Do you have a button?

Hugs,
Angela

Debbie said...

I'm trying to make a button. It's not going so well. I have enough trouble with changing my header. Anyway, if I can get one I like, I'll let you know!

Debbie said...

And that picture in your header is just bee-yoo-tee-ful!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandie, I have no button... I used to participate in awards and tags --and it filled my blog up so much that it looked too busy and tacky...SO--I quit doing it all.. I think things like this are good when someone first starts blogging --trying to meet others... I've been blogging so long that I seldom look at others' sidebars anymore.. I have enough to do just reading the post and making a comment... ha ha

Good Luck. Love the Bette song.
Hugs,
Betsy

Grandma Bonnie said...

I really enjoy my visits to your blog. You always take me back to some nice memories. I can't remember when heard that song last.

^..^Corgidogmama said...

Love your new look, and theme. Your brain is going clickety-clack in the new year!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Love the new header picture!

Love the quote - reminds me of the Bible: It is better to give than to receive.

Indeed.
