Happy New Year Everyone!!!!

I am ready for 2012, aren't you? I'm so excited to see what it will bring us!!! You all know that this is OUR year, don't you?
I can feel it!
Can you???Already, it is turning out to be a busy year. But, 'fun' busy:) A Wedding, celebrations, and some exciting projects are coming up. It's all good.We wish you all a very happy, healthy and successful 2012.

 Nicole and I are going to revamp our Online Boutique, this year too. Even businesses need some fluffing now and then to keep things fresh:) Wait until you see what great things we have for you!
 Speaking of fluffing, I am all about that again. Since all of the Christmas decor is packed away, I am cleaning and moving things around. We will be in all Winter so a change is always nice. Plus, you know me, I am always welcome to change.
                      Love my Iron Stone and vintage alarm clocks.
               Graters, kitchen gadgets, silver and funnels:)
Why would a woman collect funnels, I ask you? LOL
 This fabulous piece was used as a horse feeder. That is what I was told. Not sure it's true but now it is a wonderful cloche, don't you think:) I had all of these great little whisk brooms hanging on my shelves. I took them down and put them on a tray until I decided what to do with them. But now, I kind of like them there. Don't you love it when that happens?

What have you been up to already this 2012? Have you taken your Christmas decorations down yet or do you keep them up longer?

'Till next time...................................

    Its going to be a great 2012, and cannot wait to see what you have in store for us with your revamp :)

  12. Hi Debra ~ Ugh! Ron won't let me take down anything until 3 Kings Day! When is THAT? I need to wipe it all away. But yes, I do feel a good year is ahead for all of us. Can't wait to get together and brainstorm.

  13. thank you for stopping by my blog and your nice comment. I am enjoying your blog too. You have indeed a horse feeder. I also own one. It was given to me as a gift, and I also use it as a cloche. My Christmas decorations are still up, I am still entertaining, and I always leave it up until the 16TH of January. That was my Dad's birthday, and he wanted it up until the day after.So I follow the tradition.
    Happy New Year and good luck in all your endavors.

  14. You guys look so cute together. I checked out the shop and it looks great.
    Hope your New Year is going well so far.
