Happy New Year.. I always love new years.. A time to reflect back to all the positive things that happened that year, remember all the sad things but know that it is a brand to start.. a clean slate for the coming year and all the possibilities that are to come..
2012 was good to me in a lot of ways..
My family is healthy and happy and that is always my first priority.. My granddaughter ( 18 Months old) is the sweetest child on the planet.. OK.. I am a little bias BUT that’s the way I see it.. Both my boys are happy in their lives and I am so proud of the wonderful men they have become.. and My husband ..wow almost 33 years is as kind, loving and supportive as when we first met.. without him I would not be able to pursue my Passion ” The Vintage Room” .. he has been my rock in getting my business off the ground.. and I am so grateful and blessed in so many ways..
My ” Sisters” are always there when I need them… and always supportive of this crazy passion of mine.. calling and encouraging me when I am doing a show.. which I did 14 of this past year!! even Picking for me off the side of the road, or if they are somewhere and see something they think I would want , send me a picture.. Now , even, becoming more involved and Making things for me!! Thanks, Joan!!
And My Friends.. always supportive in so many ways: helping me set up for shows, giving me much needed advise and support, doing the shows with me, coming to shops and shows and purchasing my treasures, and always encouraging me to follow my dream ..
I LOVE YOU all so much and appreciate each one of you in my life.. I have so many positive people in my life and am truly blessed..
Here we go … 2013…
A good start to the year will be my trip.. one week from today to California to see my youngest son.. he has taken the whole week off and we are meeting in San Francisco.. and driving to LA along the coast with lots of stops in between at wineries, antique shops, restaurants ( he likes to eat at GREAT places), stopping in places like Santa Cruz, San Jose, Santa Maria, Los Olivos, Santa Barbara, Carpenteria, and Pasadena and going to the Rose Bowl Flea Market.. spending time in LA before flying home.. Can’t wait!! Because of this trip I will not be doing the January Syracuse show as planned!!
I have many other shows planned and will post a list soon.. so check back!!
While on my trip I will post when I can of all the great places we go..
Wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR .. one filled with love, peace, friends and contentment ..
