Starting over.  
Beginning again.
Turning a new leaf. 
A clean slate. 
Full of anticipation.
Eager for change.

A New Year brings opportunity. 

A timeless clock may be the perfect way to enjoy life!  
Of course in our world that's just about impossible.  Dear friends, enjoy each minute, each hour, and every day.  As the hands turn on your clock, and time moves on, grab each precious moment and make the most of it.

Happy New Year.......may it be the best one ever!

  7. Hi Mary

    I always enjoy reading your blog and looking at your awesome photography. The one before this with both the male and female cardinals at the feeder was so nice I made my hubby come by and take a look.

    I saw a manneqin in the first pic of this blog and wondered if it is for sale and if so do you ship?
    First I guess I should ask the question - how much?

    I have been wanting one for a while and this looks nice.

    A very happy and successful Nedw Year in your new project.



  8. Very well said, Mary! I have so enjoyed our friendship over the last year and I wish you and yours all the best in ***2011***

  10. Happy New Year to you dear Mary!
    Oh I had the opportunity to buy a dress form just like that one for $1 and passed it up. I have regretted it ever since.

  11. Mary,

    I have just found your new blog, I wondered what had happened to you, looking back I found the picturs of my cushion, my goodness it looks posh. The fabric screamed Mary to me when I found it, it was destined for a quilt, then I thought about your french grey room, so it never got into a quilt.

    I have put you into my blog list so I do not loose you again. I gather you and a friend have opened a little stand in your facourite antique mall, I look forward to more photo's pity I do not live over the pond, I would be living in that mall too......

  12. Happy New Year Mary! Your posts have been as beautiful as ever.
    Hugs N Herbal Blessings, Mandy

  13. Wishing the two of you a very blessed New Year along with the rest of your family and friends!
    Hugs to you both!


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
