January 2, 2012



I am sitting here on my veranda (porch) sipping my coffee and  thinking about what this New Year will bring.

 I decided many years ago not to make resolutions at this time of the year, mainly because I could never keep them!

But I guess it is good time to set yourself a goal or two.

Since my blog is so new I am  looking forward to continuing to post often.

I really would like to improve my photography skills and I also want to spend more time on my crafty pursuits.

(Since we moved to China two years ago I am sad to say that I have not been so productive.)


But more importantly I am excited about all the new and interesting things that this year will bring.

Suprising things – some good and some, perhaps, not so good…..

If there is one thing that living abroad has taught me about life it is:

to always expect the unexpected, to be flexible and to embrace change.

So,  I wish you a Happy New Year and  I look forward to a great 2012.

Bring it on!!!

red chair


Santa was very good to me this year.

He gave me a beautiful red chair and I love it!

I popped my loopy granny cushion onto it for the photos.

Eventually, it will find a new home in my craft room.

In the meantime, I am enjoying a wonderful and relaxing  holiday break.

I hope you are too.

dolce luce


This week  I’m loving……

the sweet, gentle light of Christmas…..

flickering candles, shimmering lights on the tree,

the perfect reflection from a silver bauble.

Pure joy!

the season



Its getting colder, the days are shorter now

I can light the fire and cosy up under a woolly blanket

Winter is calling, December beckons

When the season changes my mind turns to Christmas
