My husband and I had a wonderful dinner with friends last night.  I laughed so hard that I gave myself a tummy ache and almost couldn't eat my food.  They live in a loft in downtown Kalamazoo and the energy of the city last night was magical.  Near midnight we walked over to the park to watch the ball drop with hundreds of people.  We have a ball like the one you see in Times Square, just much smaller. Maddie was somewhere in the crowd with her best friend.  Taylor was celebrating in the Dominican Republic having left yesterday for a month of cultural studies.  As the new year began I thought once again about what this year will hold.  So much to be thankful for…

I had to show you the little box of ornaments I found on Etsy for my dollhouse.  Can you believe it? It is so delicate and so small.  I just love it!  I'm trying to finish this sparkly scarf today for myself.  I think one of my new year's resolutions will be to wear sparkles every day.



  1. Your dollhouse ornaments are perfect--so cute! Happy New Year!

  2. What a pretty find for your doll house

  3. That sounds like a fun way to welcome in the new year! Love those teeny tiny baubles, and LOVE your sparkly scarf.. what yarn is that? It looks so fabulous.

  6. I, too, have found such a delight in sparkles! Aren't they so fun and cheery? I have a friend who introduces sparkles into every room of her home. It is so delightful to roam her rooms with my eyes because they bounce from one sparkle to the next.
    Happy New Year!

  7. Happy 2013!! Your sparkle resolution is the best!!
