Happy new year to you all. The weather here has been cold and rainy so we've been doing what we can to warm this place up. Every year I think I may sell these Pottery Barn drapes I bought several years ago but every winter I'm so thankful that I didn't. They are heavily lined and help keep us toasty.
I didn't decorate much for Christmas but I still can't bring myself to take away the buckets of greenery in the kitchen.
This is a random seldom seen corner of the kitchen. That doorway leads to the master bedroom (lol) and bath (lolouder) that was added in 1930.
With all the rain we've gotten, the rose garden has been blooming. Fresh roses in the bedroom in January!
What do you have planned for the new year? This is my hands down favorite time of year because it just screams possibilities.
Things I'd love to get done this year would include my never ending quest to declutter and simplify my life. Paring down my wardrobe and household goods would be wonderful. With Alex now operating a v cool vintage store here in town does not help that quest tho.
Also, I've seriously toyed with the idea of a no spend year but don't know if I have that discipline in me any longer. I know I can do a no spend January. Anyone else in? Maybe we can go month to month and see where that takes us. What do you think? I can post about my weaknesses and you can too in the comments.
Also, also what about our diets??? I totally ate tons of sugar this holiday season. The temptations were crazy. I'm so ready to treat my body like the temple it is and clean up this mess.
What's on your list?
