Ready for a Change

I am sending Happy Birthday wishes to our friend Beverly who hosts
Pink Saturday each week. 

After celebrating my own birthday just last week I have been thinking about
the changing years.  I feel restless and itching for a change.

I have been wondering ~ what should the change be?  A haircut?  New clothes?
Repaint all the rooms of my house?  Plastic surgery?

What, what, what???

Finally I realized that my blog needs a facelift.
I am bored with it.  I have not been coming to the page with the
same enthusiasm I once had.  So ~ it's to shake things up a bit.

Change is on the wind and Ash Tree Cottage will be getting
a facelift and a new lease on life.  

Well Bentley, your Momma feels excited about the 
changes ahead.

Susan and Bentley


  1. I sometimes wish I could change my blog, but it is pretty permanent! I'm sure whatever you do will look great! :)


  2. Have fun with it Susan.. Make it something that makes you Soul Sing.

  3. Hi Susan,
    I hope you had a wonderful birthday! Happy belated Birthday! Looking forward to seeing your changes to your blog. Have a fabulous weekend!

  4. I have some changes I am working on on my blog too. I am bored with the homemade header and and trying to spiff it up a bit. I can't wait to see what you do.

  5. I think we all need a change at some time or another! Look forward to what you will do!

  6. Susan ~ I am sure you will have such fun changing things up a bit. We all need change at some point ~ I can't wait to see what you do ~ Have a wonderful weekend ~ Hey Bentley do you have any ideas for mommy's blog?

  7. HPS!

    Can't wait to see your new blog look! I change mine often...


  8. Hi Susan..I know what you mean..sometimes we just need a fresh new change.
    Enjoy! I look forward to see what you come up with.
    Happy Pink Saturday..xo Tami

  9. Happy Birthday to you! Your photos are gorgeous and I look forward to whatever changes are in store. Give Bentley a pat for me!

  10. Can't wait to see your changes. Happy belated birthday! Love all your pink and how they are displayed.

  11. I can't wait to see what you do - there's nothing like a good makeover. Happy Pink Saturday, and happy birthday too (it's my 60th on Tuesday!)

  12. We all could use cahnges in our lives. I really need one as well. I wish I knew how to make changes in my blog, but that is beyond my knowledge.

  13. Happy Birthday wishes sent your way, a little late but heartfelt just the same. I absolutely can't wait for your new reveal on your blog. I'm sure it will be fabulous! Happy Pink Saturday…….

  15. Have fun giving your blog an updo...I am sure it will be beautiful. Happy Birthday, a little late!!

  16. Happy Pink Saturday! I love your little vignette under the cloche and I can't wait to see your new blog look. Have a great weekend, Nan

  17. Very pretty! Happy Pink Saturday.

    Come join my Color Connection meme, it is also my PINK entry. Hope you join the fun!

  18. Just gorgeous! Perfect for Pink Birthday celebration.

    PINK at my page, come and see. Have a great weekend.

  19. Susan, I feel the same way with my whole life. My blog background is a couple years old, and I love it, but I'm tired of it so need to hire someone to make me a new snazzy one. at least it might make me feel like blogging more often, which I have not been doing..

    I love the sewing accessories under that pretty cloche..such a great idea..everything is so pretty.
    Have a great weekend with many blessings.


  20. Exciting news and I'll be waiting with bated breath (love saying that) to see what you do. Love all of your pretty snaps this morning.
    be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  21. I thrive on change! Even experts advise "don't live in a museum." Can't wait to see what you do! Hi to Bentley!

  22. Well, I enjoyed your header photo as I strolled into your post. I had to check out that little white/pink vase/bowl you had posted in the link photo. Your post photos are beautiful! They'd make some great redos on the blog! I'm curious how you'll change up your blog. I use to change my header photo and background all the time. Recently, being a WordPress blogger, I learned that I can select different photos to go with pages/posts as a header. (Check out the header photos in my page links). I just realized, I should've done that for my Pink Post ... I will off to my photo software and updating my post very shortly. Anyway, as I was saying, I use to change the header photo and background but I've actually had the main photo/background on my blog now for quite some time. Makes me raise my eyebrows! Huh!? Have fun ... it's easier and less expensive than plastic surgery! Although, I did get a new hair style recently. :) Jenn

  23. Hi Susan!
    First I want to say that I have always liked your banner. It makes me feel good whenever I visit your blog. I love all of your pretty images,especially the fabric and the dome with the sewing items, well...because I am a quilter and a sewer. Happy Pink Saturday!

  24. I love the little cloche with sewing things in pink! Very sweet! A change is always good. There are some talented designers here! Enjoy and have a beautiful weekend!
    I always love to see pink on Saturday! Thanks for the share, Anne

  25. I can't wait to see what changes you show us. Anxiously waiting! Happy Belated Birthday!

  26. I hope you had a special birthday, too! And it does make you stop and think about making things better. I love your pretty decor and that precious heart pillow! Enjoy your weekend!

  27. Susan, thank you to you and Bentley for the birthday wishes, and for making my birthday special. I hope your birthday was wonderful for you, too.

    Your photos are so pretty, and that heart-shaped toile pillow is one to love.♥

    Good luck with the facelift. I feel as if I am in dire need of one, too.


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
