~A Year of Expectations~

A New Year is here with new beginnings. As I reflect back over 2010 it was quite the journey. A roller coaster ride of ups and downs, new doors opening and others closing. I look forward to 2011 with hope and anticipation of a much smoother ride.
As the New Year rolls around I dream of new vignettes to be created, projects to be finished and others started. More blogging with interesting posts and so much more. What are your dreams?
Along with those dreams I hope to sit and enjoy a few more books.
Tablescapes is a great reference book for those of you who love putting together tablescapes. Kimberly Schlegel Whitman shows you how to set a table with flair and panache. The book also includes tips and hints on invitations, seating of guests and so much more.

Marjolein Bastin is a renowned artist that sells many products, several through Hallmark. A few years back Mr. P was fortunate enough to meet with her many times while doing work on her property here in Liberty, Missouri, a short 24 miles from us. During one of those work days I was lucky enough to tour the home they were building. If only I had my camera that day. Lots of wooden beams, natural rock floors, and glass walls, lots of glass. The view from her studio was incredible, perfect for sketching all the wildlife pictures she's known for.

Whatever your expectations are for the New Year, remember to take time for you.
Until next time.....
