Masthead header

I know, I know…. what’s this? All different lookin’ round here…
Frosty blue skies and I swear,
I just heard birds singing.
It’s January, and I am ‘full up’, as they say in these here parts…
Full of lofty ideas and dreamy anticipation.
And so thankful for the chance to start again…
one of life’s greatest gifts,
the ability to just start new
whenever we want.

And you?
Are you excited about the new year?
Any new dreams?
Or old dreams you’ve breathed new life into?


Asking you, and my friends who link with Darcy on Tuesdays….

    Amy Avery - I’m loving your new blog header. What a great way to look at new beginnings, as one of life’s greatest gifts. As for me, new beginnings are also a gift. To start fresh, to start renewed, to let go, to move forward. Isn’t it wonderful that we get to do this every day! One of my favorite little quotes that’s “out there” in the little sayings boutique world is “It’s never to late to start the day over!” I like that. Bad attitude, just rewind and begin again. New beginnings happen every moment of the day actually. How wise you are Miss Patty to make note that new beginnings are one of life’s greatest gifts.They REALLY are! Happy Day Friend!

    Cathy - OH MY GOSH!!! Beautiful, Patty! Truly! I love the simplicity. The font is incredible. And that hint of blue? Heaven. The bird and the tree are so gentle-looking and peaceful. And your name? wow! I feel like I’m friends with a famous author (well, you are famous to those of us who know you). Love, love, love everything! xoxo
