New Year's Wishes

Looking back on the months gone by,
As a New Year starts and an old one ends-
We think about what brought us joy,
And cherish our loved ones and our friends~



~~As we begin to open the book of this bright New Year -- we find that all of the pages are blank.  Going about the things we do from day to day, we will gradually add words to those pages.  The book is called "Life" and the first chapter begins here on New Year's Day. Strive to fill your pages with love, laughter, and charity for others~ 
 Happy New Year to you all -- my dear friends.  

Love,
Vicki

This beautiful Angel was a gift to me from my precious friend Dorthe.  More beautiful than words, Dorthe creates dolls that steal your heart and make you want to fill your home with her lovely creations.  From my photo of this beautiful angel, I have created this New Year's card for you all.  Thank you dearest Dorthe for this gift that I love so so very much~ xoxo

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you, Dan and all your family Vicki,
I'm back in Melbourne now after a mammoth 27 hours none stop travelling and nearly 60 degree differences in temperature, so I'm having the odd out of body experience now and again...but the jetlag hasn't been too bad. ;D

I'm just trying to get back on track visiting and catching up so I'll just wish you everything you'd wish for yourself in this New Year ahead.
Let's hope it's the best one yet!
xoxo
