Favorites from 2007

These are some of my favorite images from the past year. Some are mine, some are inspirational ideas from other blogs and websites. (Click to enlarge) From the top left: 1)Coffee filter roses. A great, easy, beautiful idea. Remember...Valentine's Day is not far off. 2)From an unknown website. I've adopted this image as Teresa's House of Clutter. Let the end be close. 3)An inspirational note borrowed from Chez Fifi. Oh so true. 4) Katrina Cottage, in pink. This cottage has inspired lots of conversation with my friends and family. The friends' version...a cul de sac of Katrina cottages housing us in our old age. Close enough to visit and help out, but our own little slice of heaven. 5)A double decker fairy garden. Small and portable, jam-packed with charm. 6)Ballard Designs window box. Beautiful. 7) Room Service Home Chef's desk for the kitchen. Simple, functional (and it would fit in a Katrina Cottage) 8) Beautiful mirror embellished with pastel ornaments. Owner, unknown. Isn't this beautiful? 9) BH&G red and white decorating. I love everything about this photo, especially the Westie--I really want one! 10) Heart pillow from Crabapple Hill Studio 11) Angelique Tulips--soon to be popping up in my garden 12) Silvery glass Christmas Tree a la WalMart, in my diningroom 13) Mantelscape, in my livingroom 14) Teresa's hallway, once again. 15) German glass bird among the bulbs. Mine. 16) Bottlebrush tree in Spode, mine 17) Staffordshire pups with poinsettia, mine {courtesy of Great Grandmother Mitchell}.

Theresa,

What a beautiful montage ( is that the correct term?). Happy New Year to you, all the best in 2008.

Your blog is lovely. I'm happy to have found it. Could you explain "coffee filter rose" for she who doesn't drink coffee?
Happy New Year and continued blogging! - Lee

Lee, I've made a link within the post giving information on the how-to's. The link also links to Martha Stewart's website which has a video of how to make the roses. The original process is from www.mommymakesroses.com

That is a very nice tribute in images to the blogging world of 2007.

Your new header is simply marvelous. I actually sighed (in a nice way) when I first saw it.

Have a Happy New Year!
