Another fresh new year is here…
another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt and fear,
to love and laugh and give.
The bright new year is giving me
to live each day with zest.
To daily grow and try to be
my highest and my best.
I have the opportunity
once more to right some wrong
to pray for peace, to plant a tree
and sing more joyful songs.
William Arthur Ward
With this beautiful poem from William Arthur Ward, I want to wish all of you the happiest and loveliest new year… a good health, exciting adventures and why not win the lottery this year 🙂
So cheers to a good, fab and lovely 2017!
Carols in the distance,
I can smell Christmas
floating in the air.
Candy canes and bon bons…
angels top the tree.
There’s presents over yonder.
one for you and one for me!
Tinsel wrapping round and round,
candles light the night,
making Santa’s journey
sparkly and bright.
A very merry Christmas
to you and your family my friend…
May your New Year bring happiness.
and may the joyful times not end.
A couple of months ago I went to a lecture in Dordrecht… now the fact that this lecture was followed by a delicious high tea, may have persuaded me to actually make the effort to drive all the way to Dordrecht. But the topic of this lecture really appealed to me… the lecture was about Jane Austen and more specifically about travelling in Jane Austen’s time.
Now I won’t go into details about this lecture again… you can read all about it in this post. The reason why I look back on it now is the fact that the woman who gave that lecture, the lovely Karin Quint, is looking for Jane Austen fans to back her Kickstarter campaign.

To celebrate my first anniversary I am organising this great international giveaway!
A couple of weeks ago I got nominated for the Beauty Blogger Award… now that’s something I am a bit proud of I must admit (beaming from ear to ear now!!). And I was so glad that it was the lovely Dominique of www.styledomination.com that put me up for this award.
