  1. Oooh, I've never been on the top before! Thanks for the game, Emma!

  2. You changed your background! I love it!!!
    I love change, don't you? I fear I shall change my sidebar and header and background so much in the future- it's just so tempting. I told you I like doing that with my room too. ;)

  3. Ohh and you've got the Laura Ingalls Wilder quote on the sidebar! I've got that one too. (You probably got it from me, haha. I'm glad you did.)

  4. Naomi,
    Yes, I'm found this new background and decided to use it for summer...I've made a new header, but I'm not going to put it up quite yet. I put the background on because I didn't want to have to find it again. ;-P I'm glad you like it! I love changing the scenery on my blog. :-)
    And yes, I stole that quote from you. I was going to ask you, but I figured you wouldn't mind. And you don't, hehe. :-) I really love it.


  5. Oooh I want to see your new header!

  6. What a lovely new background and header! :) That game looked fun, shame I was in exams :( ah well!

  7. Okay it's comment time once again, because... you've got a NEWWWW deliciously beautiful header and I have to swoooooon and you have to listen.

    I LURVE IT. Seriously it. is. awesome.

    You are also SO good at this Emma!!! Are the pictures from a movie, or are they just randomly nice ones you found? Same about the pictures on the sidebar.... I LOVE THEM. Tell me is it from a Period Drama? And I love your new profile picture too. :)

    And you stole my idea (yipeeeee) and put all the blog buttons on another page. :)

    I love it dearest!


  8. Oh this a lot of fun seeing where some actors act in different places. I have spied Daniel Deronda film often - is it good?
    I enjoyed this post!! :D

    By the by, last Thursday, my blog, Fullness of Joy had its 3rd birthday :). To celebrate the event, I am hosting a blog-party of "special magnificence" throughout the week, and as a cherry-top icing a fun giveaway for three winners to end it all. It will be a week long tag series, with every day or so I'll be making different literary-themed topic tags, about different genres such as the classics, fantasy, mystery, children's, etc . . which everyone can join in with. And I am dearly hoping you would - it would thrill me very much and also it should prove some fun, I think :)

    Today's topic is "Historical Classics" :)

    I hope you can join!


I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
