Can someone help me get rid of my background?

Update: This morning Julochka worked on my blog for over an hour to locate the offending html that had been mysteriously imbedded in my blog, giving me a carnation background that I didn't want.

Thanks to her patience and tenacity she found and removed it. I am keeping this post because of your comments and because it is now a part of my blogging history.

Thank you again, Julochka.


About eight weeks ago, before I started this blog, I was experimenting with my new "look".

I played with different blogger templates and did some net surfing to see what else was out there. I found this carnation background and tried that on for size although for the life of me I can't remember how I added it (html, gadgets, etc.) I immediately knew I didn't want it because it was too busy and foo foo for my taste.

Ever since, whenever I create a new post a box appears that wants me to add this background to my blog and everytime I delete it. Yesterday the background request box again appeared on my post and, although I don't remember clicking it, I is now my background. AND I CAN'T GET RID OF IT!
Can someone help me out?

Here's what I've done so far:
1) I wrote to the owner of the background who said this:
"When you added the block of code to your blog it put the background up, when you remove the code it takes it back off! If you need anymore help, just click on the "Help" button on my blog for additional info."
I clicked on her "Help" button but the information I needed wasn't included.

2) I wrote back and even cut and pasted all the html from my blog so she could tell me what to delete. This was her reply:
"It's not in the html, it's just a gadget that you added to your layout. It should look like a little block and should have the heading html, if you added it recently, then its probably one of the blocks near the top."
I have 11 gadgets, each put there intentionally. None of them corresponds to a background.

3) I tried clearing my cache several times.

4) I have search blogger help to no avail and my experience with the forums is that it takes forever to get an answer.

What am I missing?
What should I do next?

Mine (the one that I just deleted) was near the top of my sidebar mixed up together (just separated by one empty line) from another 'gadget' in the same box. Took me too a while to find it.

I see the background is white now...did you find it? Hope so!

I am no help to you, but wondering if you can help me. In draft mode, how do you write something then cross it out?

Dear Dear Dear Julochka has been working with me on this for an hour.
I think she's got it figured out.
She's a genius.

The Fragrant Muse said...

Okay, we're back to normal. I just have to add my gadgets.

Thank you Julochka for your tenacity, attention to detail, knowledge of all things html and

Oh I can't believe it... I've left a comment... and it disapperared!
well only to say that I prefer the white one :) and one more thing... what does "foo foo" means???

Kitty said...

looking forward to your forthcoming post in diffusion...looks like your changes wiped out your followers; i'll sign up again. thanks1

Extranjera: Thank you for being the first to chime in this morning with help. As you can see, Julochka was able to untangle my mess.

Amanda: I did nothing. Julochka was the fixer!

Bambi: Cross out code: Put S inside brackets like this <> before the word. Then put /S inside <> at the end of the word. I had to write it this awkwardd fashion or the comment wouldn't post. Is it clear?

ChiaraU: I'm so sorry you're comment disappeared. The blogger Gods are not smiling on me today. And foo foo vuol dire "sdolcinato". Sickningly sweet, feminine.

Kitty: Tomorrow I'll have my Fragrant Friday where I profile an oil and this weekend I'll do the diffusion post :-) You are still on my followers list!

Chiara.u said...
