And, here are the writings....for your enjoyment:
#1, by William Arthur Ward
Another fresh new year is here..
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given 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 wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And, sing more joyful songs!
#2, by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year.
#3, by Henry Van Dyke

One of my readers asked me to post 'something, anything'....that just made my day - so here is what I decided to post. It certainly comes under the heading of 'something, anything!" Once again, I'm showing you the entry into my house. Yeah, I know it isn't really "Christmasy" except to ME, but I am the one posting, right?

Today I got to thinking about how busy we all are and decided right then and there that 'after' Christmas was a really good time to give something away....right between Christmas and the New Year festivities....so, would you like something in your mailbox right about then?
Two of my favorite magazines...the current issues: Where Women Create and Romantic Homes. I almost always just about 'read' the ink off these pages. Hopefully, you will be inspired also!
Sure hope you all have a wonderfully Merry Christmas!! Stay warm, safe, cozy and have FUN!!!

Then, I took my electric sander to it to make it look 'old.' Looks like lots of little people scooted across this little seat! My friend, Patsy, gave me the bird sitting there. So cute!
