Blog Decor

For Creative Blogging today, here's something super simple but adds just a little flare to your blog: pictures. Not necessarily pictures of your family, vacations, friends, etc., but more like home decor! I can be pretty picky about the decor in my sidebar, so I change the images nearly monthly when I change my background. Here are some examples:

Here is an example of an image I changed to better match my current blog decor:
The original with the black frame was taken from here
I cropped the center image and added it to another frame which matched my blog colors better.

To grab one of these cute things, all you have to do is find an image, "right click" on your mouse, and select the "Save image as..." option. Be sure to make sure you are saving the picture in a file where you will be able to find it! Then, find your blog editing page and "add a gadget." The image you selected can be added as a photo. You can add the hyperlink to give credit to the website where you retrieved the image, or just list in in the "title" box.

If you don't find an image or quote that you like, (obviously you could use any home decor site that you like) another option would be to use your own favorite sayings.
I got the frame from an image here, but I changed the saying in the middle using PhotoShop and then added some stars for cuteness.


  1. This is such a fun idea! I think I am going to add one to our family blog!

  2. This is such a good idea! There is so much cute stuff out there that I could use, and the images all seem to be the perfect size for this. So even if I don't have the money to just go out and buy the cute picture, I can totally put it on my blog! I never even thought of this before.

  3. I found this blog through Lady Blogger Society. I spent some time looking though some of your posts. I love your creativity! I'm a new follower, and I can't for more ideas and tips! :)

  4. Hello,
    Thank you for your nice article with lot of information. I like it.

  5. These decorations are great, I really could use some in my own home! Where can you buy them on sale?
