Banner Number 1 Molly playing peek a boo.
Have you noticed the very plain banner on my blog? I want to change it, spruce it up a bit and need your advise. Which one should I use out of the ones I have posted here today? Or do you have another idea for a banner for Tongue in Cheek?
French Husband asked me, "What is a banner?" I told him "..the thing on top of my blog." I also told him not to worry that I wasn't going to put his face on it! Though I think some people would love that idea.
Banner Number 2 This is a photo of a bust I found at a French antique market... I am feeding it a strawberry. Crazy but true. It is not French Husband, though the nose does look like his.
My blog's name Tongue in Cheek was given to me by my friend Kristen who writes a wonderful blog called: A French Word A Day. Kristen labelled the type of antiques I like to collect as "Tongue in Cheek" . What she meant was that the antiques I like to collect are nice enough but not too serious or stuffy, they look good but rarely are in perfect condition. As I did not know what to call my blog I thought why not call it: Tongue in Cheek.
Banner Number 3 a red sparkling shoe.
As you can see I want to keep a touch of red in the banner... don't ask me why because I have no idea why. Red isn't my favorite color. Besides needing your advice on what type of banner I should use, I also need advise on how to apply it. Honestly I cannot figure this stuff out.
Banner Number 4 A French can-can girl. I'll tattooTongue in Cheek across her heart.
Tongue in Cheek as you know is not just about antiques, nor is just about my living in France. It is a hodge podge of whatever I feel like when I sit down in front of the computer screen. Though I must admit it does help that I love French antiques and live in France. As my son Sacha has pointed out to me on more than one occassion..."Mom who could take a bad photo of France? All anyone has to do is go outside click the camera and presto perfect a photo!" Do you think he loves France more than the USA?
Okay, I am leaning on number two, but I do trust your opinion. I am counting on you for your ideas and help on my new banner thingy. Merci in advance.
