toodle-oo and cheerio.....


just a little wrap-up
 of my Christmas 2012




it's always hard to wave goodbye to a wonderful Christmas
but on the other hand
 we are now on the road to valentine's day
hip hip hooray
February has always been one of my favorite times of the year
{more pink + hearts = me me me me me me me.......don't you think???}
sorry I get a little giddy just thinking about it

Oh Koralee,
I packed up Christmas yesterday and now the house has lost it's magic !! Never mind ..... having it just once a year is what makes it so magical and we have a new year full of fun and good things to look forward to.
Happy New Year Koralee and may it be filled with love and kindness. Much love. XXXX

Oh, yes, it is hard to put away the Christmas papers and baubles, but shopping for Valentine's Day is so so fun for a romantic! (Yesterday, I bought some cute pink and red heart manipulativees for homeschool. I can't wait!)

Good bye lovely pastel Christmas. I have to take down the deckies here in England this Sunday and then, in a week, take them down all over again when I get back to Vancouver. Woe is me.

You definitely have a happy color theme going on here. Hadn't thought about February being a favorite month. I usually don't start loving the months until March when yellow begins to shine with the green grasses and new peak of fresh leaves beginning to appear. I will have to give the colors of February some thought.

KORALEE!!!!!!

I was so happy to see your comment last night! I had a sweet friend over yesterday for a little TEA PARTY, FEATURING SANTA'S HELPER!!!!

Oh my dear, transporting the dress was easy. NO PROBLEMS! That morning, we had very gentle flurries, but by the time Ruben and I loaded up the dress into the car, all was clear.

The delivery of the dress was also smooth but the staff at the shop had their hands full and minds occupied with their inventory. We placed the dress in the window, having to problem-solve and to try to fit that huge thing into a very small space. NEXT TIME? I MUST MEASURE!!!

A friend of mine lives near the shop and she drove by yesterday to report to me that it looks fabulous. They placed a guilded mirror in the window as well, so that adds to the elegance. I am going over there today, hopefully, to snap some photos, but I think I need to ask them permission first to take photos of their shop. Some shops do not want people taking photographs!

If I can get some good photos , I will share.

All of you out there, you have been the best in supporting my work. I LOVE YOU ALL! Anita
