Hello, 2011 and a Review of Fave Pictures from 2010.........

Well, here I am doing my first post for 2011 and it's already January 8th! 
Whooo....I am so behind the times here!

I confess that I did hardly anything between Christmas and New Year's....I was on vacation from work that week and I enjoyed myself and was a total slacker. The hubby and I had a wedding to go to on New Year's Eve, but other than that, I mostly relaxed.

 I did do some after-Christmas sales shopping, however, to pick up ornaments for next year's theme tree and I even managed to buy a couple of gifts for next year! Amazing!
I have heard of people who are smart like that, but I'm never one of them. I have never bought gifts a year ahead of time before!

I thought for my first New Year post I would do a tribute to 2010 by showing some of my favorite pictures from last year.

I enjoyed a look back over your year of posts and all of your table vignettes are beautiful.
While we're covered with snow here, it was nice to see the flowers you shared too.

Since I am a fairly new follower to your blog, I really enjoyed seeing your favorite posts for 2010. I can't really say that I have a favorite because they are all beautiful! I look forward to your posts in 2011!
