Redesign!

Yes, folks, there's a redesign. I guess if you're reading this in a feeder, you probably can't see it, but give the page a go and let me know what you think. The white underlay behind the header is meant to be there, and yes, it's running into the couch on purpose.

I've heard that the design, for some reason, doesn't pan out so well with Safari, but it should work with Firefox on PC and Mac, and it works fine on my PC with IE as well. But please let me know. If it gets to the point where this design is just too darn buggy to deal with, I'll make it easier on you -- the reader -- and take a step back to the simple blogger design. I was just trying to make things more cozy and inviting, and I think that the beautiful couch up there in my favorite color does the trick, don't you?

So come in to the blog, have a seat, get some tea ... and the first person who can peg what that picture hanging on my blog wall up there is of and/or by ... I'll be sending you my gently used copy of Celebrating the Jewish Year: Fall Holidays! As time goes on, I'll be changing that picture and giving books away, so look out!

Good luck, and let me know what you think!

Redesign looks guh-reaaaaat! Works fine in my Safari. Did you design or did someone do it for you? I'm looking for someone to help me with mine...

SS- I actually pulled the code from a site, edited the graphic header, and after fudgeting with html, voila! The site is listed at the bottom of the blog.

That's obviously a Chagall and I think the wedding or fiddler one.

But I already have the book :)

Looks amazing . . . I love! (if you ever happen to find something that would work well with my blog . . . ;-) )

chaviva said...

Tamara you got it :) It is a Chagall! The painting is "Three Candles."

So since you already own it ... know anyone who might be interested in it? I'd love to pass it along!

Mottel: Thanks! If I come upon something, I'll let you know ;)

I like the new design, but there are some things that end up looking funky in Firefox for Mac... right right margin gets weird around your Obama logo, and the link in your "about me" doesn't wrap right. My HTML and CSS aren't developed enough to figure out what's going wrong at a quick glance, but I'll see if I can figure it out. :)

Might be that there's no 'marin' or 'padding' code for these two areas. Hmm... my book is at my parents' house. Oh well.

Fabulous - I love the new look, the Chagall and almost art deco (?) sofa included.

chaviva said...

Beth -- You're more in the know about coding than I am :) I used to be awesome, but that was back in 2002 after I took a web design course in high school.

Schvach -- thanks!
