Happy New year everyone! Are you like me and can’t believe its 2020 !! So much has happened in my life and in the world in the first two decades of this century ! Time is flying way too fast for me ! No resolutions here as I never follow through so just making the intention to continue following my heart ,doing what I love and spending time with friends and family!
My 6 year old Grandaughter Clara is crazy about sewing ! I taught her to hand sew last year, now we are learning the sewing machine . She started a charm quilt for her new doll! Together we will come up with lots of new projects for her this year !
My Grandaughter Mabel ,8 is very artistic and is coming over with her sister Edith and Clara for a paint pouring workshop with me tomorrow ! It’s so nice when their interests mesh with mine so I get the pleasure of teaching these amazing little minds !
I’ll post pics of their work next time !
Christmas was busy with family but so much fun ! Lots of colds going around ,me before the holidays and my Hubby after Christmas!
We had a green Christmas here in South Western Ontario, but New years was white with a few inches of snow ! Unfortunately a warm front is heading in so won’t be white much longer….ah well January and February can brings lots of snow so be careful what you wish for Jaye !!
New Years Eve was quiet, I babysat for my Daughter and hubby went to bed ! Oh well he’s on the mend now and in a few days all will be back to normal!
As always I can’t stand the Christmas decor after New Years so yesterday it all came tumbling down and put away !
I just love my little snowy tree so decided to leave him up for a bit !
I took this antique mirror out of my front hall and couldn’t figure out where to put it …it is dear to me as it was given to me by my late Mother in law. It was her Dads shaving mirror!
I decided to lean it here till I figure out a more permanent home but I really like the layering and the beveled edge catches the light and sparkles!
Doesn’t it feel like your home just takes a deep breath and sighs when the heavy decor comes down and spaces open up ? Or maybe that was just me !!🤔😁
This is also the time of year many of us get the urge to purge !! Quite a few of the bloggers I follow are getting ready to clear out their “stuff” and reorganize ! I do this 2 or 3 times a year as my tiny cottage just can’t accommodate too much stuff!
Last year I purged a bit too much and have regretted a few of the books I parted with but they are gone and that’s that ! My clothes need a small clean out …I’ve kept a few things that I haven’t worn in years so as much as I like them they are getting the old heave ho !! I’m thinking a clothing swap with friends would be a neat way of cleaning up , might just try that!
Well my bread machine is going to beep at me any minute so I shall sign off for now !
I hope your holidays were all you had hoped for and that 2020 is an amazing year for all of you !
Cheers , Jaye!!
