Both the background and header are from Shabby Blogs, which is an amazing website that provides free backgrounds, headers and other gorgeous goodies for bloggers. They were responsible for the previous header and background that served me well for the past year or so. Unfortunately, said background was removed from their website a few months back when they revamped it. I've been searching for a new one ever since, and am so glad I was able to find one through Shabby Blogs again.
I'm absolutely thrilled with the new look and I hope you are too! I'd love to hear what you think.
