Sharing...

A little randomness before turning the page to a new month.  My pledge...please note, not a resolution...this year was to find a little joy in each day and clear the clutter that's accumulated over the past 36 years!  Little did I know how much work was involved.  Most days have been lovely, especially those spent with friends and family.  However, one cannot stitch or be on a computer while purging.  Instead of the home being full, the bins at the thrift store are.  When I do come up for air, this is what's seen.

Unique Christmas morning alarm.

Lovely snow...no one to dine with...wonder why?

Small gift of stitching...adaptation from Blackbird Designs "Peppermint & Holly."

Thank you to each and every one for stopping by and saying "Hello"...it's always nice to hear from you.  Here's hoping your days in this still new 2013 are filled with what ever makes you happy!

Just how are you filling your days?

Hi Joy,
I'm also trying to declutter. It's hard for me
to decide what stays and what goes.
Happiness and peace to you, too!

I keep thinking I should weed out the patterns...but then I find something else to do!

Sweet BBD piece! I hear you on trying to weed out. We constantly try to do this but I swear the stuff multiplies at night.
