Belated Blogger and Happy New Year

I think this must be the longest I have ever gone and not posted. I have even considered doing away with my blog but I love doing it. It's just that lately with various health issues and the holidays I have been unable to find the time. However, I hope to remedy that in the New Year! Speaking of which I want to wish everyone who visits a happy, healthy, peace filled and stress free New Year. I hope the world becomes a better place in 2012, at least in small ways. This country especially needs our prayers to turn around the problems facing us so if you have a moment once a week or so, offer a small prayer for that reason. I am a firm believer in the power of prayer and lately I feel it is the ONLY way to remedy our problems. I thank you for that and hope you have a happy new year weekend!

The Newest Member of the Family

I would like you to meet Grace, the newest member of our family. I have wanted an old vintage dress form for as long as I can remember. I was finally successful in securing one and she's a beauty. The petticoat she is wearing, which hides her metal cage, belonged to my husband's grandmother and the pocket watch was my great grandfather's. She arrived just in time for Christmas. I don't know what her permanent spot will be yet but right now I am enjoying her here next to my desk. Sigh!

A night time photographer I'm not but it looks nice nonetheless. I took this the other night after my husband had finished with the lights. I am recovering nicely from the rotator cuff surgery. First couple of days were rough but I'm relatively pain free now. Now comes rehab! Hope you are finding time for yourself during this busy season to create a little something and stop to remember what it's really all about. Enjoy!
