HAPPY NEW YEAR


HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.
Well better late than never ay!...to be truthful, I am usually a tee-totaller, but after consuming a couple of bottles of Baileys all in the one 'New Years evening'! didn't really help and I spent all of New Years day with a MAHOOSIVE headache and in bed recuperating! only to resurface around 3pm for a New Years Day over cooked dinner lol! so this is why I am wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR, on now, the 3rd
January!



I have realised that I didn't show you pictures of my twig tree's new home in the Dining room! I know you are probably sick of Christmas pictures by now, but I am adding them here anyway to finish of another chapter...as you can see from the two pictures above...it looks so much better in the dining room...well it does in real life! the pictures have come out rather dark in these...

My next project, before i start anything else, is to find some storage space for all these Christmas decorations again! I hate that job...although it is a quicker one than actually putting them up...my hoarding, is getting to be a bigger habit than I have room to put things...so the next few days for me will be having a big clear out.

I sooo wished that I had another spare room...I would sooo like my own craft room...one where I could make a mess and leave it like it and just shut the door! but I know I must make the best of what I do have!

...But we are so outgrowing our little cottage...
Freddy is even outgrowing the caravan, he has so many art materials enough to fill up 20 caravans! and plus it is a tad to cold for him out there at the moment...so what with the Christmas decorations...too many ornaments, my sons untidiness (leaving clothes everywhere) and all of out Arty bits here and there scattered around....I really do feel like the walls are closing in on us!


I have looked online to see if there are any available properties to move to, but the rental market is still so dear...ideally i would love an old property with lots of ground, but those type of gafs don't come cheap...oh what will 2013 bring!

Anyway back to the pictures...
Above is our Christmas table...before we had our lunch and before my son Daz smoothered a beautiful roast dinner with tomato sauce and mayonnaise...ok so I did put it on the table, but I didn't realise he was going to put quite so much on! lol!
 


The kitchen looking quite tidy...for a Chrimbo Dinner...
ha you haven't seen the other side...


Our little Nativity set bought at a local Charity shop, a couple of days before Christmas...all new and in the box, for £1.50 woo hoo bargain! although little baby Jesus does look rather like a widgety grub! Bless!

And now onto New Pastures...A New year and a New start...I am not making any resolutions, because I know I will never keep them...but what I do aim to do, is look after myself more, eat a healthier diet and perhaps give max a little walk here and there...

...also I want to get to bed a bit earlier and get myself into a better routine, so that i am able to get more done in the day...you never know! I might even tackle the ironing pile! Naa only joking!

ANYWAYS HAPPY NEW YEAR PEEPS...
Have you made any New Year resolutions?
or come to any conclusions about what you want to do this year?

Do tell me ;)
+ if you have a lovely large cottage you would like to rent me for a couple of years for a poppycock rent...please come forward lol! well I thought I would try ;) xx

Happy New Year to you and yours, Happy, and may it be a wonderful one! The twig looks just lovely, and your festive decorations are amazing! Some of my resolutions are the same as last year; go to bed earlier ( failed already - look at the time!) and be tidier ....... Once the decorations are put away ( like you, where?!) I will really try at that one!

I love everything in your place! It is just beautiful! The Christmas tree and the old Christmas balls are amazing! I wish I had some of my parents old Christmas balls..my dad had alot of the kind you have! I wish I could find some in good shape for a good price! Happy New Year Rosie :)

Your home always looks amazing! Hope 2013 brings everything you wish for ... Happy New Year, Happy!

I so wish that I had! I love all your 'stuff' but can imagine that you would like to have a workroom where you could shut the door on projects until you come back. The other thought if you can't find property....another caravan just for your project work?!?
Anyway, Happy and Visionful New Year! Joan

Happy New Year to you all xx If I had the funds I would buy your house, I love it :)

Happy New Year to you too x. I am so happy I am not the only one with a cottage ready to burst from all my hoarding and craft materials. I too have a caravan and have started transporting stuff out there but it's so damp I'm limited to whati can store. I dream of a shed/workshop

Happy New Year across the pond! Hope you find the perfect home in the perfect spot. Meanwhile, could you store (as in storage unit, do y'all have those in England?) some things? Hugs ~ Mary

Nancy said...

That is what I was thinking while reading this Mary..Over here Happy we have storage units of all sizes to rent where you could keep all of your pretty things packed away and safe until it's time to bring them out again..I just love your bright and cheerful kitchen!! A Happy New Year to you and yours Happy!!

This is Nancy Cruse..I ordered the Paul Jones honeycomb paper garland from you..I just wanted to tell you that I received it the day after Christmas and I love it..It is so bright and colorful..I think I am going to hang it in my office to brighten it up after I put Christmas away for another year..I am enjoying my decorations so much this year that I am not in a hurry to pack them up..I love the white tree that you got so much that I went to Walmart the other day and bought one at half price to put up next year..That will make three trees for us as I put up my 1950s aluminum tinsel tree and always have a small real tree because I love the scent...Well I am rambling on now so I just want to say Thank You..I will enjoy it!! Hugs, Nancy..I tried to send this by email but it would not go through..

Hi,
