I can't believe it has already been a whole year since I started this blog! I have enjoyed writing ever single post, be it about a new bag in my shop or some interesting pictures I took of the things that inspire me, not to mention the fun I have with Flashback Friday.
And most of all I enjoy reading your responses and seeing how my work echoes in the blogosphere - it is a very welcome feedback and I want to thank all of the Loddelina friends for your support and kind comments!
Over the weekend I have experimented a little with the cool new Blogger template designs. After trying out a few I have decided on this neutral looking poppies background and a new banner. I tried some other, much more colourful background photos, but they took too much attention away from the posts - and after checking the new site on my iPod touch I could see that the background doesn't matter much on the small screen anyway...
I used this picture of a row of houses in Augsburg to make my first blog banner. What do houses and handbags have in common? I'm not sure but somehow I couldn't resist the warm colour combination and the lovely pattern of the windows... I guess one can find creative inspiration anywhere, even looking at pretty houses, right?
I am looking forward to my second year of blogging and I invite you all to join me - and if you can spare a few clicks, I would love to hear what you think of my blog's new look!
