The Last Hurrah....of 2011, at least.

Christmas-time has been absolutely wonderful this year. 

We've had a fantastic week all together as a family every day.
{Yesterday, we came back from a rather wet tramp in the countryside and had hot-buttered toast by the roaring fire. Heavenly.}

 But it has meant that Modern Country Style has been noticeably quiet.
*hangs head in shame*

I've missed the delicious feeling of sitting with you
and having a gentle natter over a cup of something yummy.

I imagine us together somewhere like this. 
Do you want the blue shoes or the pointy shoes?

Once New Year is over then everything will be back to normal.
I promise.

 And as for New Year itself? I know some of you dread it but I unabashedly love it
This picture sums up how I see it....

New Year's Eve is a bit like getting ready starting out on the most extraordinary journey; you're not quite sure what it's going to be like....but you know enough to see that it'll be lovely.

And with you and me together again, it will be.

Happy New Year to you all.....

I prefer the blue, and I feel like I'm about to board the train in one of Poirot's intriguing mysteries.
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you, sweet Sarah. I have so enjoyed visiting your blog this year and look forward to 2012.

I'll take both pairs, thank you!


Jenni said...

Hello sweet Sarah! And a very Happy New Year's to you! I love {LOVE} New Year's as well, for the new year and what it will hold! {Knowing just like you said, it will be lovely!} And don't feel badly that it is quiet over here! This is a time for relaxation and family! :)

Have a beautiful day!


P.S. I would choose the blue shoes! But you never said which were your favorite! :)

On Crooked Creek said...

Happy New Year, dear friend!!!
Oh! how I'd love to have a cup 'o coffee or tea and chat with you. I'll take the pointy toe shoes, thank you. Those straps on the blue ones make my ankles look fat...and they are far to constricting for me! I want to hear all about your newest adventures and upcoming projects for 2012! Now don't spare any details! Isn't it a grand time when we just sit here together and visit about all of the wonderful things in our lives? Darn, gotta' run, but I'll be back soon!

Happy New Year Sarah.
Never ever apologize for spending time with family!

I love these little chats. Not too picky about the shoes...I suppose the blue ones would do nicely.

I loved that picture of the train...would mind terribly if I sat by the window as we roll in the New Year? I'm so ready to see everything it holds!

Happy New Year!

Unknown said...

Oooh I need the lovely blue shoes in my life!

I have taken the last week to recharge as well and sometimes family and friends need to take precedence over a blog ;) No need for any apologies or guilt - this is supposed to be a fun hobby, right? ;)

With that all said, I just want to wish you a very Happy New Year Darlin!! I hope 2012 brings you everything you dream xxx

It's just the busyness of life at this time of year! I love Christmas, but I always look forward to January and the bit of calm it seems to bring.
Happy New Year to you and your family!

I'm all for the journey as long as it's not a train wreck, lol!

Hope you have a wonderfully smooth journey in 2012.
