I am undecorating the house this week and putting away the past year along with the baubles, gift wrap and Phil Spector's Christmas album. Well, Phil may stay around a little longer as I've not perfected harmonies for Frosty the Snowman yet.
These are a few pictures of the festive decorations around the house before I started demolishing and packing.
Yesterday I was asked to contribute to a list of new year resolutions submitted by members the International Decorative Artisans League. I hope that mine were suitably trivial. I am really rubbish at resolutions.
I found the blog Rummage this morning and enjoyed reading the resolutions of Nanette Louchart -Fletcher, its Australian based author. She has the same cereal bowl as me...so, kindred spirits already! She takes the kind of photos that I would like to. I am sure that there are many other entertaining resolvers out there. Do tell if you've found some.
This morning a visitor to our shop told me that he was there as a result of his decision to spend time creating 'lovely things'. An excellent resolution for a new year!
Mine was to lose thirty pounds and take tap dancing lessons.
