Happy New Year!!!


Bird on bench

Wow! Is it really over??? That went fast! Let’s hope for all good things in this new year.

I managed to snap a few photos outside in between snow storms! I know you don’t all have snow. We went to a party just before Christmas in Mississauga. I was dressed up like I was going to outer Siberia. Down coat, Sorel snow boots, hat, scarf, gloves..you know. The regular Canadian Winter uniform. When we arrived at our destination…about an hour from where we live. There was not even a trace of snow!! It was even a few degrees warmer than Stouffville. I didn’t need the whole winter uniform!!

So enjoy these photos and for more inspiration, don’t forget to check out the seasonal galleries at the top of the page. If you like winter, take in the beauty of this season. If you don’t. Skip right past and go to Spring or summer and dream of the warmth to come. It’s only a couple of months away!! 🙂

I’m not sure when I decided I’d finished decorating for Christmas…I think it was December 30th! And I only really finished because I thought what was I carrying on for.
My Mum said, “Everytime I come here, there’s something different” and it’s true. I just kept going. But I carry on decorating because I like to practise doing different things. I don’t ever decorate the same way twice and because I decorate as a profession, I’m always on the bottom of the list.
The container above was sitting empty and it was driving me nutty. We were having a mild spell weather wise and I had enough thawed out soil, so the day before New Years, thats what I came up with!!
I’ll post some of the interior decorations in the next few days. But to get ideas for next winter, (!) check out the Winter Container Page.
A belated Happy New Year to you and Thanks for stopping by.
