My 2008 Headers

I'm dedicating this post to Roy http://fenlandwalker.blogspot.com/. He has been a good blogging friend since shortly after I started blogging in March of this year. Without his inspiration I may never have begun to explore the world of Header Magic. I am going backward in time here to my very first header, a beautiful work of art that I created from a not so great photo of my garden. While searching the world of bloggers I found The Fenland Walker because of his beautiful Poppy Header that wasn't a photo, but an actual work of art that he painted from a photo he'd taken in a field where he'd walked. I commented that his Header looked so much like mine, but in a different sort of way. Thank you Roy for being such a good friend and wonderful inspiration. All my guinea friends minus one...(she didn't fly up), maybe this is her below...Oh that's a he!!! a beautiful sulphur butterfly.Everyone thought this would make a beautiful card! Oh my bluebird came back in the fall to think about nesting this spring.
My beautiful view.The hay bales of summer.My favorite Clay-colored Sparrow...Buzz buzz buzz! The Helenium in my new garden! A Northern Harrier in a beautiful sky. A sand dollar from my Maine vacation. Young guinea friends. And the original Sunny Side Up. All great fun, and wonderful memories to share!
Happy New Year to all my great friends! You all make me smile each and every day!
Whoops forgot this one!Aw the memories of Fall!!
And I forgot this one TOO!!!Maybe I need new glasses...or maybe I just need to eat more fruit!!

Shellmo said...

I've loved all your headers Eve! (But must admit the guinea ones hold a special place in my heart.)

Lynne said...

Please-oh-please will you share it with me too?

I simply cannot choose. You have such an eye for beauty.

Leedra said...

I like the one Guinea by herself,
4th down, and the hay bales in the fog. Guess it is hard to decide when you have options. I have never figured out how to get a photograph in my top part.

Carolynn said...

Those are all beautiful. I may play around with header photos in the New Year.

Bird Girl said...

That was so much fun to see all the headers...and like Lynne says - you have a real eye for beauty!!! Who could choose?

John Theberge said...

Each and every one is nice, happy new year, it'll be interesting to see what the next 12 months brings.

Kathryn and Ari said...

Eve, these are just lovely!

Happy New Year to you: Hope 2009 has begun with peace and joy for you and your family.

The Birdlady said...

Wow! Each is beautiful, but that pano of the guineas is priceless!

Mary said...

That's a great way to remember the year! Making headers is fun and each of these is a beauty. Happy New Year wherever it finds you and keep bringing us your sunny outlook on life!

Oh, I love them all. Your pictures are like a deep breath and a cool glass of water.
Of course, I'm partial to the big-personality guinea photos, but all your pictures are wonderful.
Happy New Year, Eve... (and thanks for your sweet email this morn) :-)
Hugs from your friend in Oregon

Kissies to you Daisy Lu from Roxy Louise

Roy said...

Thanks Evie,

Those headers are pretty fabulous photographs taken by a pretty fabulous Photographer.

Happy New Year, Eve. I wish you the best in the New Year and hope your home sells and closes real soon. I hope you can have a flock of guineas when you get settled. (Just think, no more 7F days for you!)

Country Gardener said...

Wishing you all the very best for the new year, and your new adventures, Eve. Cheers/Yvonne

Eve said...

Thanks everyone, it was such fun to make these and just as much fun visiting all your wonderful posts!

Your Guinea friends are a wonder! Recently I've watched the whole set of your posts about guineas with my husband from the very first one. We were both amazed. So many of them and.. ooh they're too cute!

HANNIBAL said...

You have a great eye for header-worthy pieces! All of them are gorgeous! The haybales were a fav. but then the sanddollar, and of course the close up guinea. Seriously, you need to cycle them thru again so we can get another look.
Happy New Year!

Eve said...

Hi Alexandra! Nice to see you again! I'm so glad you liked the guinea posts. They are such a sweet bunch. They can cheer you up in an instant! Happy New Year and congratulations on your marriage!

Hi Hannibal, thanks so much, it will be fun to recycle and hopefully I'll get out and take some more worthy pictures, it's been a bit miserable out here lately!

Richard said...

Hi Eve,

Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope to see you again.

I looked at your dove picture from last April. That sure is a pale one. I have them that color all summer. This is the first year I have had the darker/brownish ones but will have to wait for summer to see what happens. Isn't nature fun.

Eve said...

Hi Richard...it truly is!!

Mary said...

I like the new header of the guineas romping in the snow :-)

Susan T. said...

the guineas are great! I wish I had room for some. Guess the 2 chickens will do for now!

Denise said...

Hello My Friend, these are fantastic and what a great idea. I look forward to all the ones you will be sharing in 2009.

Happy New Year!

Cloudia said...

not a loser in the bunch!
Just amazing!
I boldly attempted a new "header" and am pretty pleased with it - but your are EACH professional quality. Love your work; Aloha-

Sandy said...

Oh these are great! This looks like a nice blog too. Love that photo down below of the cranberry banana bread. It's making me hungry and I just had dinner!
