Head Over Heels Friday: A New Look, A New Attitude!

I'm feelin' good from my head to my shoes
Know where I'm goin' and I know what to do
I tidied up my point of view
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

I got a new attitude

Hammers and High Heels has a new attitude...
and look!

I hope you took notice of the new template and header! I've had this in the works for a while and I have to say, I am Head Over Heels! There are still some more updates I need to make to get the blog a bit more cleaned up since the width changed, so bear with me if you see anything goofy!  But, it feels so good to get this update out there in the blog-o-sphere!  Couldn't think of anything more exciting to write about today!

Another reason that prompted the new look...

We are nearing the end of all the major home repairs from the May 22nd tornado damage! (knock on wood)  It makes me feel optimistic, sort of like we are getting a fresh start on our house. For the past few months, our house hasn't really felt like 'ours'Rooms have been off limits, our 'stuff' is all over the place, and strangers have been coming in and out of the house constantly.  It's not the most 'normal' and comfortable environment. So, once the last repair guy leaves (supposed to be on Tuesday?), the house is OURS again!

Since the house was getting a fresh start, why not the blog too?
A new LOOK and a new *optimistic* ATTITUDE!
I think there's a lot of great things ahead for our little Dutch Colonial, and I can't wait to share it all here on Hammers and High Heels!

So what do you think? 

Are you liking the updated Hammers and High Heels look?


Confession: I couldn't get 'New Attitude' out of my head since I started designing that blog header! Maybe I am Head Over Heels for that too this week???  In case you need to hear it too, here is a link to the 1984 Patti LaBelle hit! Hammers and High Fives to Dean for finding the video for me!
Crazy and ironic... there are high heels, dress forms, and garment racks in that video! Coincidence?!?


  1. Love it!! And what a relief it must be to finally have the tornado damage almost behind you. Have a great weekend!

  2. I'm digging the new look Carla! Classy, tactful, clever and full of pizzazz...just like you. I'm sure there was a good amount of behind-the-scenes work to make this happen so way to go!

  3. I love it!! NOW I really need to update my website!

  4. Carla!
    The new look is amazing...very fresh and classy.
    I am happy to hear that your home has finally come out from under the clouds of that tornado!
    Have a great week!

  5. I love the new blog look! :) Loving all of your fallish updates - it makes me sad we're missing fall in Minnesota this year!


I love to hear from you! What's on your mind?
