It sure is hard to believe that the year is coming to a close, isn't it? I am more than ready for a fresh start, a new beginning! That's how I like to view the new year, anyway. But before I look ahead, I like to see where I've been.
It has been a wild and crazy year, full of plenty of challenges and changes. And adventures, too!
I've shared my three tiered vintage wooden pedestal quite a few times with you all. One of my favorites was this cute Easter arrangement. Love that sweet vintage chalkware bunny! As for the adventure part, hubby and I enjoyed Maui over the holidays last year.
I am really missing those amazing sunsets over the Puget Sound. The photo on the top right (below) was taken from our living room when we were living in Washington State.
We left those gorgeous views of the Sound and the snow covered Olympic Mountains (above, left), to return to our home state of Michigan. We journeyed over 3,000 miles in our motor home, and saw so many beautiful sights along the way!
Of course, I spent alot of time painting and glittering this past year! I've created many chalkboards, but I must say that large one above is my absolute favorite! I sold that one, but if I ever get so lucky to find another frame like that vintage one, I am keeping it for myself!
I also added many pieces to my milk glass collection.
The highlight of our year was our trip to Paris and the French countryside this fall. Oooh, la, la!
I also shared with you my new "friend" Natasha, the French inspired mannequin who keeps me company in my craft room!
Both myself and our sweet cocker spaniel Emily had surgery this year.
Lots of changes. I am worn out just thinking of it all!
But, I am very thankful for what we have, for all that God has blessed us with.
I'm also very thankful for you! You all have been so encouraging, so full of inspiration and support!
Here's wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
