Happy New Year
Hello, friends. I’ve been absent from this space for far too long and I miss it. Despite a few challenges we had a wonderful Christmas here in our little house. We are so blessed, and even though I wasn’t expecting much, thanks to some wonderful friends, family and complete strangers we had an amazing Christmas. I have never been more thankful for so many good people in my life. I hope 2012 brings with it a little more luck in a few area of our life, but even if it doesn’t, I am so grateful that I get to spend my life with my sweet husband and hilarious little girl. With them, no matter what luck does or does not come our way, I will be happy.
Last New Years Day I photographed my Pyrex collection (post here). It was considerably smaller then. And tonight after Creamie went to bed I decided I needed to do it again. You know, just for fun.
I have a lot of new pieces, thanks to some great thrifty finds and some great friends who find them for me. Looking at them all together I really need to find some more pinks and blue/turquoise. Those are my favorites of them all, and the hardest to find.
I have made a few New Years goals for myself, and for our little family. I didn’t do to well at last year’s goals, so I am hoping that this year goes a little better. Last year Creamie was sick for most of the winter and spring and it really threw me for a loop. She got a flu shot about 6 weeks ago and hasn’t had a sniffle or a cough or a bad night since then. I just keep praying that this streak of good luck lasts.
This little cup is the most unusual piece of Pyrex I’ve ever found. I saw it on a shelf of a teeny small town thrift store and was surprised to find it was Pyrex. I am not sure if it is a handle-less mug or a tall ramequin or what. But I love the barcode/woodgrainish looking pattern. Kind of fun.
Last year I just set my collection up on my desk to take a picture. It took me about five minutes to get it right. This year it took a lot longer. Scott has finished a movie in the time it took for me to get everything set up on my table, take the pictures and then write this post. But it was an evening happily spent. And since Burn Notice is over for another season I have little else to do in the evenings. (HA!)
Thank you friends for all your support and virtual love. I have loved the friends I have made in this space. And I miss you when I’m not here. I’m not going to try and catch up with everything from the past few weeks. I’ll just tell you that I did a LOT of Christmas sewing. I’ll share my favorite not exactly Christmasy project this week. I spent hours and hours on it and it is one of my favorite things I’ve ever made. Happy New Year everyone!
