Positive Quote for the New Year!

I loved this quote, it really inspires me to make the New Year the best it can be! I hope you enjoy it too :)

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. - Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Sharing our blessings.

Unless we make Christmas an occasion 
to share our blessings, all the snow in 
Alaska won't make it 'white'."

Bing Crosby 
In no particular order........ 

I'm grateful to have a home to live in.

I am thankful for laughter.

As Bing says, how about we share our blessings and truly appreciate our 
lives, instead of getting caught up in the commercialisation of this season.

Irrespective of faith or beliefs, this is surely the true joy of December.

Merry Christmas everyone.

With much love from Lois, Nickole and Kate

And the Winner is . . .

Well, the November Team Contest has come to a close, and Naomi from Historika has chosen a winner!

A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Susan from susanwilliamsdesign with her submission of these lovely Icicle Earrings!

Said Naomi, "All three {submissions} were totally gorgeous, but Susan William's earrings were exactly the type of item I had in mind when I set the theme- she caught the 'patterns of winter' so perfectly!!"

Susan will have a whole month to think of a new theme as we will take a break this month from the Team Contest, and enjoy time with our families and friends. Look for a new theme coming in January! :)

Enjoy the Patterns of Winter that surround you this month! :)
