Seeing Green

Um...what happened to the pink background, you ask?   The one this blog has had for the past two years--the one that looked like this?
Well, on this glorious Holy Saturday morning, I decided that String of Pearls was due for a change!

The last time I gave my girl a bold facelift was in 2014, after I'd been blogging for about three years.  I'd been using a pastel peach-toned "Ethereal" template supplied by Blogger, but began to feel that it was a little on the bland side; so I switched to a jazzy new template and then did some advanced adjustments to make my page look the way I wanted it to.  (I wrote about my big blog re-design in this 2014 post, if you're interested.) 

I thought I loved my pink-striped background so much, and thought I would never ever change it.  But it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind, you know (you might have heard that)...and that's just what I did this morning.  I decided that since the covers of both of my novels are predominantly green, and green is the color of my beloved Irish and their Emerald Isle, this color scheme makes a lot more sense than the pink one did.

Now that I'm five years into the blogging thing, I know I can easily switch back to the old template anytime I want.  So let me know: do you like the new look?  Do you think String of Pearls looks pretty in green?


  1. It just occurred to me that it's sort of funny that I used a meme featuring a man for this post; because I believe that the only male readers I have are related to me by either blood or marriage!

    1. BTW: How pathetic is it when you post comments on your own blog?

  2. I like the new look! It matches the sweater you're wearing in your picture!!
