201 days to go:New Year's Eve



I spent the day shopping and visiting my dad in hospital.
In the evening we shared a meal with the children, my mum, my eldest son's girlfriend and one of his friends.
At 9pm the youngsters left and we waited for our friends, Joy and Andrew and Kevin and Denise to come and we welcomed the New Year in together.
I love January. I love new starts, new plans and after the indulgence of the past week I enjoy getting back into routine.
The shortest day has already been and gone which means every day is a day closer to summer and lighter days.
Happy New Year to you all - I hope 2009 brings everything you wish for.

Day:
Dress - Joe Brown
T-shirt - Primark
Jeans - Gap
Vest - Dorothy Perkins
Boots - Ugg

Evening:
Dress - Oasis

Boots - Tesco
Necklace - Mikey
Ear-rings - Marks and Spencer

I love how much color you wear on a daily basis. And don't you love that the shortest day is past? I know the days are only fractionally longer now, but I still love it.

I agree! The page has turned, the lighter days are coming, and the fact that there are green tips of spring bulbs coming up in my garden fills me with hope and expectation of what is to come. Thanks for your inspirational project of creating something wonderful to wear every day with what you already have. Just shows what we can do when we look at things differently! Blessed 2009 to you and yours.

What a darling New Year's Eve dress. I am impressed that you have the toned upper arms to pull off a strapless dress!
