I can’t believe it’s been one year since I started blogging. November 2011 was my first blogging month and I almost let this month get away without recognizing it.
The best part of blogging is YOU. It’s unbelievable how many wonderful people I have met this past year through blogging. I feel like I have friends all over the world.
The highlights of my year of blogging:
The Haven Bloggers Conference in Atlanta in June
(just a few of the great people I met – Shirley & Kim, I don’t have a copy of a pic of us)
Meeting Cat Bude from Sunday Brocantes during my trip to France in September.
I would have never met all these great people in person had it not been for blogging.
What an incredible journey this has been.
I thoroughly enjoy all the correspondence with my newfound friends. It’s my favorite part.
HERE is the first post that I wrote if you want to take the time to read it. As the old ad says, “
You’ve I’ve come a long way baby”.
Hopefully I have many more years of sharing and blogging.
In honor of all my faithful followers and readers who labor along with me and take the time to read my musings and make comments, I’d like to offer some French goodies in light of the holiday season which is upon us.

Bonheur (happiness) embroidered ornament
Pierre Deux Joyeux Noël ornament

Gianna Rose drawer liners
Antique French porcelain shield number
Hand-stamped (by me!) jute banner

Again, I’d like to say THANKS to all of YOU!
