NOTE: These backgrounds work best if you start with a white minima template.

1- Click "Customize" { top right corner }

2- Click "Add a Gadget"

3- Find "HTML/Java Script" and click the "+" sign

You are now in the Configure HTML/Java Script screen. You will see a large box. Now, copy and paste this entire HTML code into that area:

<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url("direct link"); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }

Choose a background, copy the link underneath it, and then paste it in between the parenthesis in place of where it says "direct link". Make sure you leave the parenthesis in place.

Hit save, and you’re all done! Enjoy your awesome new blog!

Shannon, what a talented woman you are! So I am loving this one for my cooking blog (girltimes.blogspot.com) but it isn't turning out very well. It could just be my computer, I don't know. Do you have any suggestions?

Also, do you think you could maybe make me a button for my blog? I love this design! I want to advertise my cooking blog, and think this is simply adorable. Let me know. You can email me amygrondahl@gmail.com
Thanks a ton!

I love this background. It looks great on my page. I'm trying to figure out a nice header and a button. Can you help me? Thanks!

Hi, me again. I asked the question above but had another one. Can you do some backgrounds for cake lovers? I love to bake cakes and I can only find cupcake backgrounds. I would love to see what you can come up with. Thanks so much for your time.

love this design. I use it for my recipe blog, it adds a great retro homey feel, exactly what I was looking for
see it in action at my blog Cancello's Kitchen on blogger
