Here's to a Happy, Healthy New Year!

Early to bed last night...but I did wake up at 1:00 AM...in time to "celebrate" New Year's Eve Mountain Standard Time, I guess! The weather turned cold and windy here in the early evening, so the warmth of the electric blanket called my name...

I received Vintage Vavoom from Amazon yesterday. What a beautiful book...filled with lots of charming vignettes and "how-to's". I also looked through the new issue of Victoria magazine. It's not quite up to the "old" magazine, but it is still such a pleasure to read. I especially miss the herb column written by Emelie Tolley. I'll have to just look through her books --The Herbal Pantry is one of my favorites.

Plans for today...reading, relaxing, and preparing for "back to work."

Theresa,
I agree re: Victoria and I feel like a traitor saying the style is there, but perhaps not all the substance (yet). I used to like Emilie as well.

Fun, I didn't realize that Vintage Vavoom book was already out! I think I'm going to head over to Amazon now!

Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR new friend! That's what is missing from Victoria, I knew it was something, just couldn't place it. I agree too, not as good as the old but still worth reading over a cup of tea!
