Yo! I'm here, I'm here! I've been out the last couple of days enjoying the sunshine, and the "just-enough" breeze that's been keeping everything from melting down like a Dali landscape as it usually does around this time of year. I've also been surprised to see so many people around the city, since it's usually a ghost town for the month of August when everyone who can goes to the mountains or seaside. It must have to do with the Olympics, which will be beginning here (in Greece) in a few days; either people don't want to deal with all that extra tourism, or everything is too expensive to bother.
However, even though I haven't been here, I haven't been idle; I have sooo much stuff for you! First of all there's two new pages of bloggrounds, here and here, plus I have a nice set of "jade lotus" patterns, with an example box here. These designs came about after I was playing with one of the new green blogground tiles in this example box, and used the lotus image as an accent in the black bar. Then I thought, "well, why not make a pattern or two out of it?". If you are interested, you can find that font at the bottom of this page. And speaking of dingbat fonts, here's another nice type site with lots of ornamental and specialty fonts.
But wait, there's more! In the spirit of these sweet, white summer days, I also have sunny Carmelita, and if you don't like the patterns, well, you have to love the name, don't you? Here's your Carmelita example box. Don't you think that bottom accent pattern is precious? And you know what? Just because it's Thursday, and you're you (don't ever change!), I'll slide you this secret little pattern that I like a lot but which has just been sitting around gathering dust; I call it "pea hen" because it's not as flashy as a peacock, but has it's own understated charm.
