How Do I Look? New Name & A Giveaway!

How do I look? ;)



I have been working on my blog over the weekend and as you can see, I changed the name from "a day in the life of bella" to "Bella Casa ~ Beautiful Home", I hope you like it! I have also added lots of cool links and even more blogs to my blog list!

I would change the background, but I can't figure out how...hmmmm...I changed it about a month or so ago, so I am not sure why I cannot figure it out now. If you have any tips on this, I would so very greatly appreciate it!

Now, on to my giveaway!!! What am I giving away? Does a $25 Amazon.com gift card sound good? I think so! :)



So, how do you enter? Just leave me a comment on this post. What kind of comment? Well, I would love it if you would tell me how you like the new name or the new links section...or if you could tell me which past post of mine that you enjoyed the most...or if you know how I can change my background, I would appreciate hearing about that, too!




For an extra entry, blog about this giveaway on your blog and then come back and post that link here, for your 2nd entry.

Note: If you do not have a blog, make sure to leave your email address, so I have a way to contact you if you are the winner!

I will be selecting the winner, using a Randomizer, on Wednesday, September 10th. So you have until then to enter.

Good Luck!!!

Your blogging buddy,
Bella

Psssst!!! Blissfully Domestic will be relaunching their site today, so make sure to check it out!


Some contributors will be holding giveaways, so make sure to look for them. Here is a great one... Sylvia from A Tad Bit Prudish. She is a mom who loves crafting, so make sure you stop by her site and see what she is up to and tell her I sent you :)

And another pssssssssst!!! Melissa at The Inspired Room will be hosting Fall Nesting Week, Sept 2-5. You can link up your Fall Decor blog posts to her Mr. Linky. She will also be having a giveaway for an Amazon gift card, whoo-hoo!!!

Hi there! I love your new name for your website / blog. It is very inviting and gives you an immediate welcoming feeling. I love it when owners of webites and blogs keep reinventing and evolving their sites. It makes it new and fun for those of us that visit there often. It doesn't get stale or boring and keeps us wanting to come back to see what's new and different. I like your current background, but now that you name has changed it would be interesting to see perhaps a Mexican inspired background, or something sort of Tuscan in design. With a new catchy design or pattern in some earth tone colors it will compliment your new name very nicely!! I can't wait to see what you do next! Very nice so far.

You are very gifted and creative. This is my first visit and you have a beautiful blog with a beautiful name. Your "Tiffany" room is breathtaking. I'll be redoing my master bedroom and bath (hopefully next year) in a big way. I'm gathering ideas now...

Thanks for the chance to win...

I love the name, and I also really love the turquoise and brown colors. I wouldn't change it, if I were you. (loved the master bedroom too!)

The new design is great!!

Kelli said...

The background is my favorite part. I like the new name. I wonder if it would be more striking if you didn't translate it... Although, people might think it's like, your name, instead of Beautiful Home.

fae said...

i love the new name, it fits your blog perfectly. i enjoy reading your posts and seeing all of your projects. very inspiring!

ReinyDey said...

I love the colors, very graphic and chic. Just oodles of great links. Keep up the great work. I look forward to exploring your blog more.

rgbchic said...

I really like the Bella Casa logo. I think both the previous name and this new one are both great names but this one perhaps is a bit more memorable.

love the patterns on your home page

freakdujour359 said...

I am just now discovering your blog- very nice, indeed!
Love the new name :)

Dianne Hadaway said...

Hi there! I just discovered you as you followed me on Twitter, so now I'm following you! Love the blog, love the new name, love your bedroom! I do agree though that you need a new background to go with your new logo. You change it by clicking on Customize, then click Edit html. Look for the section under all the variable definitions that looks like this:
body {
background:url(http://-----.jpg);
and just enter the location of the new image you want to use in the string.
Thanks for the entry in your giveaway too! Off to check out more of your blog ;)

New name works for me. Easier on the mind. ladyvon@grm.net

Bobby said...

Love the name. Love the style. Beautiful. A plethora of information in the links to great places.

purango said...

I love the new name and the links. It has enhanced your website. garrettsambo@aol.com

Audrey said...

I really think the new name does sound better! Beautiful background (I wouldn't change it)--really goes well with the new name!

guettel78 said...

I really enjoyed reading your blog about your son's bedroom makeover - I've been looking for some good ideas for my own bedroom, and the style in his room is very sophisticated and modern. Thanks!

Tamara said...

The name say it all Beautiful Home. The colors are very pleasant and it adds class to your work design. Thank-you for the links very easy to navigate.

Lori said...

This is a great new name! I have to say, in regards to the medallions on the sides of your text box, they get in the way of some of the images and it is distracting me a bit. Just being nit-picky but everything else is great!

BEAUTIFUL site you have here colors are just right thanks so much for having this giveaway

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I love your banner and find your layout very nice. The candy dish how to was quite nice. You have many wonderful budget minded ideas.
Love it!

KLM39 said...

I enjoyed your post about the Dollar Tree Halloween spree. I also like your new name much better!

Betty C said...

I really like the look and I think the gold color of the logo is a very rich accent.
I used to be heavily involved in crafts of all kinds until I accumulated so many projects I ran out of room and time. So I especially love all the how-to photos and instructions. The candy dish project is really cool. I just may have to try to make room for it. :)

My favorite blog would be the aqua master bedroom. It's so beautiful.

Susan said...

What a very chic and retro look to it...but somehow it 'feelt' differently than it did the first colors around...it's great.
