I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years!
Ours started out a little wonky
with a broken furnace and no heat on the first floor.
Aren't furnaces suppose to last more than four years??
Thank goodness for warranties...though that's not keeping us warm while we wait for parts.
Also, I was on my way to do some marathon shopping and my car battery died.
Seventy seven dollars of my shopping money went to a new battery!
Happy New Years To Us!!
We have so much to grateful for this year.
A little bit of a rough start won't damper my spirits!!
You may remember I recently hosted a giveaway sponsored by my good friend Mona at
Providence Ltd Design. to celebrate the grand opening of her new on-line shop.
Mona donated a beautiful vintage necklace for me to giveaway on my blog.
I have wanted a vintage breadboard for the longest time and Mona had one for sale in her shop.
I was so excited to finally find one and I ordered it right away.
Imagine my surprise when she told me this wonderful piece would be a gift from her.
This is just more evidence of how very kind and generous our family of bloggers are.
Thank you Mona for this wonderful gift and for your friendship and support this past year.
Isn't the breadboard wonderful? I am displaying it in an antique artillery basket I already owned.
I must admit I got this idea from Marci at Antique Chase.
When I saw the picture of her boards displayed this way I just fell in love!
I am on my way to sit in front of the fireplace and stay warm.
Have a great week.
