The Year In Review..........

Cindy @
is hosting a Year
In Review Party we thought we'd take a little
trip in the Wayback Machine for some of 2008's

(I could not figure out how to edit the mosaic that
Cindy you are stuck with a mile long
post! Sorry about that!)

A picture from our first post last April...
YIKES!!! This was before I had knowledge
of the Macro function!!!

Our original blog banner....double YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Again...Macro would have helped, but it was still
gross! Ooooph!

Hey, I didn't even have my own camera back then!

We have shown you our homes....

Our projects....

Our pets.....

(Hey, I'm doing all the work...My baby gets to be
the star!! :)

Our minor obsessions.... (mostly PINK!)

It has been a fun & interesting year...
and now that I have my own camera...
my own of Christmas morning...
THANKX FRED & KITTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(And I have a TV that is only used for DVDs...
what is a troglodyte like me doing with a blog
anyway???! :)
Hopefully, this blog will get kicked up a notch
for 2009!!!!!!
2009 ought to be a blast!


  1. I, for one, have really enjoyed visiting your blog throughout 2008. May 2009 be full of fabulous creativity for all of about some prosperity, too! LOL!

  2. I am very excited for 2009!! I have lost 11 lbs on my way to the 100 I need to lose by 2010! I got new stuff for my craft area and am on the way to an all new smaller and more organized me!! YEAH!!!!!

  3. I am glad you finally have your own camera and computer. I think your blog has been beautiful already. My fav always was those hanging shells by the lace. Happy 2009!

  4. You have a beautiful home. I love all of the touches of pink. It's very sweet!! Hugs, Terrie

  5. Wow, I missed a lot! I am going to have to go back through your older blogs to see all the goodies I missed. I love those frames....and how many pets do you have? I'm just asking so I can justify getting more. HEHE! You are one of my favorite blogs! I never want to see the page that says "blog removed", okay? :)

  6. Wow! I can tell your Christmas was blessed! Now I guess I'm the only troglodyte left out here. :)

    I still don't have a camera, but I'm working on it. Not the best computer either, but it'll do for blogging. You can say I'm also blessed to be able to get on the old WWW at all. I try to make the most of what I've been given.

    Can't wait to see what you'll do next. Those are some lovely pictures, especially the sea things. You know I'm partial to them. xxoo

  7. Oh you always had such great pictures - whether you had your own camera or not! I have always loved the borders you used for your pictures. You have shared so many beautiful parts of your life and I have enjoyed reading your blog. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to what 2009 holds for all of us.

  8. It has been a fun year and I have so enjoyed spending part of it with you, so thanks for the fun and encouraging the use of glitter at every turn. 2009 will be glitterier (new word) than ever I bet!

    Happy New Year to you! XO

  10. Isn't it amazing how far our blogs have come since we first started! My photos were so bad in the beginning! I always love looking at your beautiful things, especially your chintz and I just want to get on eBay and buy more every time I see yours! I'm so happy you decided to join in today! Here's to a great 2009 for all of you!

  11. So many gorgeous pics ... my favorite one is your pretty stack of plates, showing all the lovely colors and patterns. It makes me feel like going to the office to stack up some of my eBay inventory and take some pretty pictures of my own, but I've promised to take the rest of the year off to do projects at home :o) Perhaps I'll stack up some plates early next week ...

    Happy New Year from Victoria
