I love welcoming the New Year.  It isn’t a religious holiday, so I don’t have to worry about offending (or excluding) someone when I say “Happy New Year!” It’s also a great time to reflect on the past and think about the future! About a month after I started my blog in March, I set […]

I saw this display in a local wine shop window… …and it got me thinking about gifts for next year.  I didn’t gift any wine this year, but I think I will have to next year, just so I can work up a pattern for a wine cozy hat and scarf set.  What a fun […]
