Happy New Year and a Short Blogging Break.





I’m going to be away from my blog for a short while but normal service should be resumed at the end of January. Thank you to all my loyal blogging friends and to all readers of this blog, I will miss you and will be anxious to catch up with your news when I return. Thanks for being such lovely friends.

    1. Thank you Shashi, I might do one or two exciting things (like book shopping!) but I mostly want to take a break and catch up with some reading. My TBR pile grows larger by the day, and I can’t wait to curl up in a chair and read. Our grandson and Terry’s parents stayed with us over Christmas it was lovely but tiring, so a rest is the number one priority. I hope the New Year brings you lots of opportunities and even more happy times. Barbara xx

    1. Dear Liz and John,
      To send a reply in rhyme, would take me an awfully long time.
      So I won't!
      But, I will wish you both the very happiest of New Years.
      Speak soon, Barbara x

  7. I hope your reading break will be pleasant. We're currently dogsitting my brother and SIL's dogs - yet again - so after the New Year I'll probably need a recharge, too.

    FYI, I am in love with that cute New Year picture that you posted with the bear.

    1. Hi Kristin, my energy levels are always low after Christmas so it felt like the perfect time for a little R I miss walks with our dogs (we no longer have them) so I envy you the dog sitting.

  16. Have a relaxing time on your break, Barbara. I will try to find something to write about myself in the meantime.

    I love the writing on the last card, it's simple and to the point.

    1. Thanks Anne Marie, I’m being very lazy! Recuperating after a busy few months prior to and over Christmas – it’s wonderful!
      I love the old-fashioned cards so much more than the new ones.
      Happy New Year, Barbara.

  25. Beautiful BARBARA!

    I just read your comment, and I just wanted to tell you that I am still following YOU. I will be here every time you post, and I will stay connected. It was a very hard decision to make, for it is YOU ALL who have driven me and motivated me throughout the years to press on and find my voice. But the Blogger format is no longer suitable for me, or vice-versa; I have no art to share, to art or craft to share and my home? People would tire of it. I thought about carrying on as usual, but I've been challenged several times to get away from on-line images and to share my own. I can't.

    However, like I said, I am going to keep connected by visiting.

    I too, am sad. Much love, Anita

    1. Dear Anita, you are such a sweetheart! I would love you to visit whenever you can, but I really don't expect you to comment on every one of my posts.
      I really do understand everything you are saying and can empathise with you but the blogging world will be a much sadder place without you, so I hope you might come back to it one day.
      I’m sorry this is a late reply I’ve only just found your comment.
      Much love, Barbara xx
