Rustic Blog Theme - Distressed Browns with Bees

Here's a nice brown and cream rustic looking background for you today. I used an architectural clover style pattern and distressed it like crazy, and then added three nice little Bees along the side for a little more interest.

This free background was made to be used on a Blogger blog using the Minima template for the standard number of columns.
Follow these instructions to easily add this background to your blog:

1)Make sure you are logged in and then click "Customize" at the top of your blog.
2)Click on "Add A Gadget"
3)Scroll down the box and click on "Html/Javascript"
4)In the "Content Box" cut and paste the Html code posted below.
5)Click "Save" and you are done!


<style type="text/css">body {background-image: url("http://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq185/thebackgroundfairy/backcloverbees2.jpg"); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }</style><div id="tag" style="position:absolute; left:10px; top:30px; z-index:50;width:172px; height:51px;"><a href="http://www.backgroundfairy.com" target="_blank"><img

  5. Karen: this 'rustic blog theme with bees' really sang to me and I have put it on my blog.Thank you SO much for doing that. I suppose you know that the bee was one of the symbols of French royalty?
    In our area, folks are being encouraged to put up 'mason bee' homes for their gardens.' Blessings of buzzing bees and bountiful gardens! LN
