New heading photo with quote

I put a new heading photo, complete with new quote on my blog. If you get the time take a peak and let me know what you think! I think I have the quote a bit to bold and big, but I'm too lazy to fix it. Maybe this weekend.

The quote is from my current read, The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister. So far I'm not very far into the book but really enjoying it. The quote stuck out because while I'm not much of a cook (although I love to bake), I do love shoes. haha!

Thanks Bermudaonion!

It looks good as is, but it might look a bit better if you reduced the font size of the quote a bit and changed the color to white to match the text on the bottom right.

I love that photo!

Love the photo - brings back fond memories. I spent a semester in Rome when I was in college.

It's a beautiful photo but it's a bit big. Also what's a zester?

Lisa said...

I love the picture!

Cathy - yeah - I'm going to work on the quote, the white didn't work well in that spot when I was viewing it, but might try it and see what it looks like once it's published

Ladytink - Thanks!

Alyce - Thanks!

SuziQoregan - Oh..how I would have loved to study abroad, I bet that was a wonderful experience.

Kathrin - Thanks! I'll be visiting your blog shortly!

Callista - and can you believe that it's still that size after I cropped it? haha! A zester is a tool used to scrape the outside of oranges, lemons, etc. Sometimes recipes call for orange peel shavings or something like that, you would use a zester to get little shavings.

Lisa - Thanks!
