Lovely Season, Lovely Kit, Lovely Beginnings

(download me here)

It's a beautiful day here in CT!  I wish you all a very merry Christmas!

Does the start of a new year invigorate you?  Does it inspire?  I am so ready to start the new year.  There are a bunch of scrappy ideas turning around in my head that need a new beginning to come to life!

Does the New Year inspire your crafting?

A lovely, lovely Jenni Bowlin kit is waiting to be revealed.  Jill called it "perfection" - and she's so right!

It's funny, but parts of the kit remind me of some of my favorite things. Sooooo, here is a Jenni Bowlin Mercantile January kit hint . . .  as illustrated by some favorite things in my house . . . . 

My favorite pitcher - I stole it from mom.

LOVED this mirror when I saw it - I really need to clean it though!

Our fireplace did not have a mantel.  I picked this one out from United Housewrecking many years ago.

A favorite platter from dear sil.

My everyday dishes. LOVE them. Bought with the money I got from a very profitable tag sale!

Ceiling tins decorate my sunroom wall. Got these at Brimfield a couple of years ago.
Do you see a pattern here? LOL!  The kit is LOVELY!

I've been meaning to blog about this girl.  If you're a scrapper, you know about Kolette.  I can't really say that I'm "friends" with Kolette.  Maybe "acquaintances" is a better word.  But it is strange how our paths crossed.  Kolette and Jason's life has affected me.  You meet them once and you know how amazing these people are.  I think about Kolette almost every day and am wishing continued and improved health in 2011. 
Thank you for visiting and sharing your projects, thoughts, and comments with me!  Looking forward to sharing in 2011!

  2. モンクレール レディースには多くの人が知っているモノです。モダンかつラグジュアリーなセンスをモノの中にたっぷり組み合わせています。私は先日、このブランド品についての資料をネットを通じて、少しずつわかるようになりました。このブランドはフランスのファッションブランド品のモチーフから引き続いて、出来上がった最高のブランド品です。今、セレブ達はすごくモンクレール ベストが愛用しています。多くのパーテイへ参加するときに、絶対このバッグを持っていこうと思います。
