Mama's Got a New Look


Due to the incredible talents of  Keetha and Daryl, Mama had a facelift.  Kinda.  I feel like a new woman.  

Keetha lives and writes her fun blog from the great state of Mississippi.  Where I was born, one frosty morn.  Look away, look away, look away, Dixieland.  Wait, I am getting distracted.  Anyway, when she posted a shot she took of this old building with the co'cola and the 'Pause' on the side, I knew it was meant to be.  She happily sent it to me.  Only, I had no idea how to get it to the place where it now proudly sits.

Enter Daryl--an Upper West-Side;) photography and technical expert.  She graciously offered to look at it and fix it up for me.  People: she gave me many fun choices.  I had a hard time deciding because they were all so good.  So, here you go.  Whaddaya think?  Cool, huh?

Oh, and by the way, please visit Daryl here to read about a shelter called NY Pet-I-Care, and to help get funds for homeless cats.  It's free.  All you have to do is click.  Thank you in advance.  Both Daryl and I are suckers for helpless animals. As are the rest of you;)

Love it! Was the recovery time difficult? Did you have to spend the day on the couch watching "I Love Lucy?"
This looks really, really great. Well done everyone!

I love it! I also loved me some "co'cola." In the narrow glass bottles, preferably.

Keetha said...

I'm so flattered! I had passed that abadoned barn a dozen times (it's on Highway 82, around Stewart, if that means anything to you) and kept meaning to stop and get a photo. Earlier this fall I did.

So glad you like it. I think the new header looks great! :-)

LOVE the new look! I also admire the creativity that went into your new blog header. Mine is sooo boring but I don't know what to do with it. I guess I'll just have to appreciate yours.

Cool Breeze said...

Great idea!

Daryl said...

Nice photo Keetha, it was a pleasure to play with it.

Thank you so much, Lauren for the Pet-I-Care rescue mention .. no money is being requested, no time, nothing but a sign up w/zipcode to help them get a grant to keep the kits fed.
