Thanks to the ladies (are they ladies? Surely there must be some gentlemen working there too) over at Shabby Blogs and inspiration from The Cherry Blog, I'm trying out this gnomie new layout (lord knows I love gnomes). I'm not 100% sure how I feel about the entire thing, mostly because the background isn't black and I the way photographs look on a black background, but we shall see. Any thoughts? It's very...bright, right? I'd love some outside opinions. Speak it to me, blogosphere.
