It's December! (New Blog Design)


December is here, which means Christmas is coming! 
*runs around singing* "Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, pleas put a penny in the old man's hat. If you haven't got a penny then a half penny will do, if you haven't got a half penny then God bless you!" :)

Ahem...so anyway, as I was saying Christmas is coming! Christmas means decorations and the very first thing I'm decorating is my blog! So, what do you think?
As promised the theme is The Young Victoria film which was the winner of the "What Should Be The Theme Of My Next Blog Design?" poll back in September. 

Here are the header, background, comment button and blog button from this Autumn featuring an Anne of Avonlea theme.

Autumn Comments Button:


My Autumn Blog Button is still available here and on the Blog Buttons page:
Old-Fashioned Charm

For Christmas I've added a new header, new photos on the left sidebar, a new background, two new Christmas-y blog buttons and a The Young Victoria banner at the bottom of the main page. I'll also be using some new The Young Victoria signatures that I recently made. 

What's coming is December at OFC? Well, I've got to keep come secrets to surprise ya'll with but I can promise Christmas music, book and film reviews and a very special something which is bound to be stupendously grand!   *claps hands* I am so very excited for all the festivities of the season! :D


What do you think of the new design?

Are you a fan of The Young Victoria?

Are you excited for Christmas?

To be honest, when I found out about your new decor, Miss Laurie, I was a teeny bit apprehensive because I love your Anne and Gilbert one,... but now all apprehension has fled and I LOVE YOUR NEW DECOR! :) I'm also a fan of The Young Victoria. Though I don't celebrate Christmas, looking forward to your special something... :)

It's lovely! :)
Saw "Young Victoria" on my flight back from Dubrovnik, Croatia 2 years ago and enjoyed it. I saw it again on TV over the summer--can't remember what channel.
