  5. Your dining room is so perfect.....everything is just beautiful.
    I can't believe you have your seedlings ready. The time to plant will be here before we know it. Now that Jan. 1 is here, spring is around the corner and I can't wait!
    I hope you had a great snooze.

  13. You have started the year out quite properly with the traditional 'good luck peas and greens," and served beautifully on your Blue Willow.
    It looks like you have your gardening work waiting on you, but I hope you get your rest in also. Balance for the new year.

  16. I'm all for luck, but oh, I just cannot take you up on the black-eyed peas. My MIL made some for New Year's day and I tried! Hopefully God will still bless me! :)
