Rearranging the furniture; Looking for Picture Perfect

There was a time when I loved changing the furniture around in my apartment or my room at home.  It was great to find new ways for the furniture to fit.  I still do it some but not as much.  I think our furniture now is heavier and we have these big old radiators that take up entire walls, making it difficult to move things where I'd like.

When I'm in a cleaning mood sometimes it hits the blog as well.  I've played with backgrounds before and never feel satisfied-good thing they are easy to remove.  I know what I want and wish I knew enough to make it myself but I don't.  I want something simple with a natural look-one tree, one lone flower without a barn background or lots of ribbon added on.  I've picked this new one because I like the color green and I do like the one flower but I don't like the heavy brown shading and leather-looking strap running down the page. 

Visiting other blogs I marvel at their beautiful backgrounds that seem to match exactly what their blog stands for.  Why can't I find one to fit mine.  I like my header but wish I could stretch it out more, make it feel that space better.  Oh, my maybe I just need to clean my house and not the blog but it is fun to try on new "outfits" so let me know what you think or where to find the perfect peaceful reader background!

Other tidying needs to be done like I really need a new picture of Groovy Girl-as of last Friday she's a 4th grader and certainly doesn't want her picture up there holding a baby doll, even IF she still plays with her babies on a daily basis.
It SOUNDS like I could be bored but I'm not; just rethinking, reworking and dreaming a little.

I think your blog's design is awesome. Very "peaceful" and easy on the eyes as well.

I like the look! A green stripe would be nice too, like a mattress ticking, a faded green.

It took me a while to find a design that I really liked. Nothing really felt quite right until my current one. So far, I have to say, I like your design at the moment. It is peaceful just like your name! :)
