Blog Header Advice

Would any of you like to share some tips, do and don'ts, and any kind of advice about your blog makeover? Please do. I'm thinking about purchasing a header. I recently changed my template to something Summery; because, I love the coast and wish I was there!!!!!! I'm thinking for my header I'd like a big black antique looking frame with toile background in the frame with a shabby chic crystal chandelier with me in Lilly Pulitzer of course with Puggy on a leash and flowers. I dunno, I figure I'd send the designer some pics of my favorite things and let her kind come up with a plan. Anyways, I need advice. Do any of you ladies have any good recommendations? I'd love to look at who you've used. Or, if you have any ideas for my blog itself, I'm up for suggestions. Any designers who come across my blog, feel free to email me at southernbellejm@gmail{dot}com. Here are some of my favorite things:

I love crystal chandeliers.I love anything toile, seriously.I love fresh flowers especially hydrangeas and the Calla lilies pictured below

Also, I love my pug. This is a pic of her. Don't you just love her little white paws!!!! Isn't she adorable=)I love antique furniture especially Louis XVI style like this and the chair belowIf you know me, then you know I LOVE bourbon. It's my drink of choice, and well, I love a mint julep if it's made right!!!!!
And most close to me know I LOVE LOVE LOVE the beach. I have a natural dark complexion and love being out in the sun. I, also, adore GWTW. We've all seen, and I just love Tara. Who wouldn't want to live in a beautiful house like that. I could just picture this house in my header as well.

And, last but not least, Lilly Pulitzer!! This Betsey dress is my favorite purchase. I love it!!!!!Love this frame in gold but would like pictured horizontally or like this but black!!!!

I am no help with headers. But I love that chandelier!! My husband finally promised me that if we ever put on a master bed/bath addition, I can put a chandelier up in the bathroom. I've always thought that looked neat.

If you check out my page at the bottom is my designer! She is incredible!!! And she will listen to your every whim, trust me! LOL

I had someone design mine and she did my whole page for 40.00. That is by far the cheapest I've found anywhere. I wanted something that I would love and was really cute. Check out the link on my page for Krizzy Designs. I don't get any compensation for recommending you. She has done a lot of blogs and she's so easy to work with you'll love her. She sends you what she's doing as she's doing it so you can give her feedback.

I got mine done by Jessica at thisthatandyourblog.blogspot.com. She was great to work with!

That's going to look so cute! I kinda want to do a blog makeover also! I have been thinking about it. Your pug is way too cute! I love pugs! When Thomas and I get married we are going to get Lucky a sister (to be named Lilly). We are thinking that we will either get a pomeranian since Lucky is half pom, or a pug because I think they are the cutest things ever!

I have no talent for blog makeovers. I hired someone to do mine a while back, and I am thinking about a redo pretty soon! I love your list of your favorite things. I too love toile and antique furniture! Oh, and your pug is the cutest! So sweet!

Ah, the new header dilemma, if only we could help Miss Belle, we would, but this is where our cluelessness comes in.

All the photos are so fun, they do fit you to a 't' from what we've been able to glean as your bloggy friend. Good luck in the hunt, and don't forget what Scarlett's father told her: "It's the land Katie Scarlett, the land is the only thing that lasts." (Why we felt the need to include this is beyond me, I've no earthly idea why other than your image from the film!)

Smiles at you,
tp
