It's a New Year . . .

The first week of the New Year
is well on its way . . .
. . . and perhaps you,  like me, have remarked
how quickly the Old Year has passed?

Home, sweet home . . .
. . . we moved to this house five years ago this month . . .
after 30 years in our previous home and in a different town.

Turquoise walls came with the house . . .
. . . I'm more of an earth tones kind of gal, 
but we decided to live with things a while
before making any changes . . .

Five years later (where did the time go?) . . .

I've grown used to the beachy colors here . . .
. . . I don't think I'll get around to changing them anytime soon.
Instead, we've warmed them up with touches of earthiness . . .
burgundy, various wood tones, and lots of colorful books.

 . . . and a cat or two help add to the coziness factor!

A healthy, happy and prosperous New Year to you all.
