Loving the skin my blog is in

Monday, March 03, 2008
Spring cleaning and remodeling are in full swing over here at Calendula & Concrete. Yes, it's still me; you're in the right place. Community gardener moves to the 'burbs and thinks she can grow all things edible in her squirrel-ridden backyard.

For the longest time, I've wanted to tear down my blog's old brown wallpaper and put up something fresh. And now, here it is, beautifully designed and implemented by The Love of My Life, Michael.

Gorgeous, isn't it?
