I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year.
Let us hope that we have seasons again.
Like many of you it would be good to have
I am especially hoping for a year with good health,
the last two haven't been good for me, however
I am well now and looking forward to a
creative and happy 2013.
I have had the time to enjoy putting favourite bits and pieces
around the house, especially in the lounge which we finished
a year ago.
I was lucky enough to find these curtains in Emmaus
( a French charity ).
I thought they would be the correct size for the doorway in the lounge.
I am delighted with them and how they cheer the room
these dark wintery days.
Below are more photographs of the lounge in its Christmas dressing.
|Limed beam above the mantle.|
|Stars of nature and man.|
|Crowns sitting on some of the books.|
|Our little tree decorated simple in white and silver.|
|The fairy sits happily on top of the tree.|
|I bought these sweet little velvet shoes at a brocante and I|
just had to add them to the tree.
|We bought this handsome fox some years ago.|
This Christmas he's in the lounge with his own crown.
( we don't know if it is a he !!!)
|I found the beautiful candle holder and Father Christmas at another brocante.|
|The star looks like its with the moon|
( its the reflection of the light )
Each Christmas we always make each other cards. These are this year's.
|Mr P made this one from Samuel, Pie and Tortue.|
( He did add their crowns on the computer )
I made a little folding book with a message on each page.
It was bound with a grey silk ribbon.
|This is the little book unfolded.|
This last photograph are the beautiful roses left for us by our neighbour.
Each year Marie arrives early ( whilst we're sleeping ) and leaves
a New Year gift of flowers for us.
Life at Kerjacob is good.
