first post of the new year
Reading many 'Best of 2011' posts and articles has prompted me to revisit my own year in review. How about you?
Last year ...
I began to write full articles for publication. My first assignment was Marie's aqua dream of a cottage for Romantic Country magazine
followed by writing about and even photographing my own home for Cottages & Bungalows.
Note: The very-top image was taken for the upcoming February issue due any day now!
I became a Contributing Writer for Romantic Homes
and finally made it into Artful Blogging!
I didn't get a ton of home projects done but I did manage to paint the armoire white with aqua stripes,
try some ideas,
take some photos,

2012 finds me happily writing, making project lists (and trying not to overwhelm myself), swooning over ladders, and continuing to be a fickle pickle when it comes to decor -- still vacillating between cheerful/vintage style

and the wonderfully subdued and simple French/Nordic.
January also finds me window shopping quite literally for another to hang indoors (the one pictured was just $15 at an antique store backed with a $10 sample of wallpaper).
and thinking of (re)covering the dining room table again!
For me 2011 also saw a quick rise in the popularity and use of Facebook. I know I can be found at my Tinkered Treasures page whenever I have a snippet of time. However when time allows, there's nothing like sitting with a hot cuppa and visiting inspiring blog friends.
Think I'll brew a cup of tea and grab a cookie or two and fit in as many blog visits as I can right now!
Wishing everyone a 2012 filled with good health, love, happiness and oodles of inspiration and creativity!
