New Blog Design!!!

Happy Monday everybody!  Thanks so much for all of the sweet comments on Saturday's post!  Rick and I both enjoyed reading them!  We had an amazing anniversary celebration and were sad to see it come to an end, but here we are - back in reality.


Some of you have already noticed the new blog design.  I'm so happy with it and wanted to share a few of the details with you.  If you are receiving this post by email or reader, you might want to click over and join us.  I wanted the blog to be easier to read and to look cleaner and less cluttered.  It always surprises me to hear from someone who has been reading the blog for a while and still doesn't know how to find stuff on here.  My hope is that you can find what you are looking for now.


Starting at the top you will find tabs for things that might interest you.  I'm still updating a couple of the links and of course the "tutorials" tab will continue to be updated as new projects come along.


There are lots of ways to keep in touch and I've added a few buttons to help with that.  If you want to receive Cottage & Vine by email, all you have to do is enter your email address under the "subscribe by email" heading.  Also, if you need to look for something all you do is type a word or words that would help you search, for example; striped curtains or cleanse diet.  Your topic should pop up along with a few others.  If you still have trouble, you are always welcome to email me.


To keep the clutter down, I changed the "labels" tab to drop down instead of being cloud or list.  It takes up less space and looks better in my opinion.  To search labels just click on the arrow to the right of "click to choose a label" and all of the labels will appear.  Most of you already know all of this, but there are some who don't.

There may be a few more subtle changes, but overall this is it.  I hope you like it and would love to hear your feedback.  Have a great day!
