Nice. Going for the "Berlin during the cold war" look. Retro.

I should come up with a new background for 2008.

MamaGeek said...

I love it! Oh yeah - you're definitely a bad ass alright (and I'm a size 2).

Happy 2008 Avery!

I posted the motivational poster I promised. You think the guy/chick/neither/both thing dressed up like Zelda is good.........

Doozie said...

I really hope lazy gets rid of his purple silk sheet as his background, it is entirely too gay.

I however sort of like your new look, the header anyhoo, nice going

Pixelation said...

Mucho very nice. I approve.

The Casual Perfectionist said...

Verrrrrry nice. (Said with my best Borat accent...sorry, I couldn't resist!) :)

Avery Gray said...

Ig--actually, I was going for English garden, but I'm still looking for an ivy covered wall. I'm making due with this for now. Too prisony?

Mama--Happy 08 to you as well, my dear!

Dooz--yeah, Ig's got a lot going on on his page. I'm voting for plain white background. The purple detracts from his Bush hating paraphernalia. (You hear that, Ig? White, mmmkay?)

Pixel--oh, thank the Lord! I was going to scrap the whole thing if you didn't. And I'd hate to do that. It was a lot of work.

Momma--ah, Borat! I don't think I'll ever get that movie scrubbed from my psyche, but, oh, how I wish I could! Thanks for the thumbs up, though!

How about a greener look for 2008 Doozie?

Natalie said...

Well, I like it. And you've given me an excuse to roll out my January design a day early. It's not complete yet, but the snowflake/candy cane theme is driving me nuts now that Christmas has come and gone. I'm weird like that, I don't do Christmas after Christmas. I'm sure you really needed to know that.

The Lazy Iguana said...

Avery - not too prisony. Prisons usually have clean painted walls, with uniform size blocks. Unless you are talking about a Mexican Prison.

White background? Talk about institutional. White will not work. I would have to make all the font colors darker. Right now the font colors are set for a dark pimpin purple background.

Do I really need a new look for 08? Maybe so. Maybe not. One will just have to wait and see!

The Lazy Iguana said...

By the way, next time I see an ivy covered wall Ill take a picture of it and upload it to you. I can even crop it and resize it to make a good background. Nobody else will have the same background, till the steal it from you.

Edge said...

I keep wanting to say "Madrigal" for some reason. I like it.

Misssy M said...

It says the cooler in the Great Escape..but accessorised!

Lizzi said...

I think it's fabulous! Plus, it takes way less time to load - a twoofer!

meleah rebeccah said...

Holy Hell. Nice New Look.

ps.....HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!

Jill said...

Very nice! I likey.

I LOVE your makeup advice. I wish I could run right over to Ulta right now. (But I'm alone with the girls and a trip to Ulta with 2 children is NOT my idea of a good time.)

Thanks ever so much!

Doozie said...

did lazy just call your blog "institutional white"? Let the SMACK DOWN BEGIN. You better run for it you smarmy little lizard, avery's gonna chop you in half with her ginsu knife she got for christmas!!!

Mike said...

You're gonna need to start writing some CLASSY posts to match your new decor here.

secret agent mama said...

I super love it, Avery!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

missburrows said...

Is that the key to your heart? You really shouldn't just leave it lying around. You never know who might be lurking.

Heather, Queen of Shake-Shake said...

Bad ass for sure!

Stephen said...

Very cool. Happy New Year!

The Lazy Iguana said...

Doozie - I see more than white here. There is the wall - which is very not white. And then there is the background for the text, which is very slightly not white. Very subtle.

I experimented with an all white theme, and I discovered that the text would have to be a darker color.

Lis Garrett said...

Happy New Year!

Mert said...

You are bad ass! I lurve it! :D

Sheila said...

Totally Rockin' Lady!

Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!

Amy Turn Sharp said...

Happy New Year Babe!

holly said...

i TOTALLY love it. i need a new look too. and a new title. and a new nickname that doesn't associate me with a hippo. and some good material. wow. that's a whole lot of work i'm not sure i can commit to. i'm not going to think about it.



happy new year from 2008! i'm here already!

Avery Gray said...

Natalie--it looks awesome! I hope to have your skills one day!

Ig--not too institutional if you have all that other stuff going on. Just makes the other stuff easier to see. Besides, it's not that hard to change the font colors. You're on Blogger, right? Oh, and I'd totally take you up on that ivy-covered wall pic. Thanks!

Jef--that's just because you're hopped up on goofballs. Thanks, though! Hope you're feeling better.

Misssy--is that the look I was going for? Hmmm... I think I need to change my background.

Lizzi--that's the most important thing! Thanks!

Meleah--thank you! Happy New Year to you!

Jill--thanks! We have a Bare Escentuals store at one of our malls here. I LOVE IT! Totally addicted.

Dooz--I wouldn't chance knicking the blade on his sharp iguana claws. Besides, he said making his background white would be too institutional. This just looks like Alcatraz!

Mike--like all my posts aren't classy? I stick my pinky out when I'm typing them, I'll have you know!

Mishi--happy New Year to you, my friend!

Miss Burrows--nope. I gave my hubby the key to my heart when I married him. (Just don't tell him about the spare copies I had made.)

Heather--coming from the Queen of Bad Ass, I'm humbled.

Stephen--thanks! Happy New Year to you!

Lis--back at ya!

Mert--and I lurve you! Thanks!

Sheila--best wishes to you! Happy New Year!

Amy--hope you're doing well, sweetie! Happy New Year!

Holly--'Oh, there you are.'

"Do I know you?"

'No, but that's where you are. You're there, man!'

Lilacspecs said...

Happy 2008! And well, I like the new look, but it is a tad "Midnight in the Garden og Good and Evil" ish...still, thumbs up for doing something new!
