White Gray Linen Background - For Minima

Click on image to enlarge

Today I altered my simple linen background that has been so popular, and made a similar version in a pale gray/white tone. I think it gives it a nice French or European look!

This 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:
background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed;
}</style><div id="tag" style="position:absolute; top:30px; left:0px;
border:0px;"><a href="http://www.backgroundfairy.com" target="_blank"><img

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Blog Resource(s) post on Aug. 28, 2010. Thanks again.

  2. thanks for this post! i love it and i love your site cause I am actually inspired by it! i'm trying to use this background , but your link seems to interfere with the other items i have on there even if i rearrange them. i'm not using minima since i am using the new template designer- is that the problem? if so, do you have a similar background that works for the new templates?
    thanks so much-

  3. Hi Naomi,
    Yes, that is the problem, this one only works with Minima. I will be making it for The new templates soon though, I'll try to get to it either today or tomorrow!

  4. oh great! thanks so much!

  5. Hello! Is there any chance you could make this background available without the white stripe in the middle? Thank you so much!

  6. You never made this background available without the white stripe, did you? For the picture style in blogger? I have your tan linen now and check back on this periodically, {*longingly!}
