An Inspiring Start to a New Year

My favorite way to ring in the New Year is at home, surrounded by the things and people I love, this was the scene last night in our cozy living room......

On the table was a new object brought home from my recent trip to NYC,,,I'll tell you more about this bowl and the heavenly shop that I found it in in an upcoming post!

Some beautiful roses from a Christmas Guest still fresh and in full bloom,,,a few new books I can't wait to read from front to back,,,and some sugar cones I've had for years and years...

A pair of zinc candlesticks discovered at an antique market about 7 years ago,,,and a vintage white porcelain candy dish found on ebay also about 7 years ago.  

Hopefully next year at this time the table scape will have some new memories to share and more treasures to hold.

Wishing you peace
good health
and prosperity
in the year ahead
and may you discover
the JOY
that comes from being surrounded
by the things you love.
