A GOOD YEAR-SAYING GOODBYE TO 2011

January – Eating cake and getting inspired for the year ahead.

February - A trip to California and a bakery tour like no other.

March – Celebrating the arrival of our two little tigers.

April – Trying to keep plants alive and posting memories above the mantle.

May – Surprise gift from a friend and watching the world go by.

June – Making the beds has become playtime for cats and a favourite lunch of soup and an interiors magazine.

July – Evening meals on the shore and Joyce’s beautiful kitchen.

August – Dinner with my sister at Aloka in Brighton.

September – The shop tuned into a gallery and I took a trip to Ireland.

October – Inspired again by the changing seasons.

November – Pretty packages sent to far off places and a faded flowers rescued from my fathers garden.

December – Gorgeous gift wrapping, pinecones and paper chains.

    A beautiful record of your year! May this one be full of inspiration for you too :) I love the style of photography you have used in November’s images. Were they altered or taken with a polaroid?

    Hi J, just came by to see your latest, and am smiling big time, after seeing 2 photos of things I’ve sent you in the post :) Thanks for including them in your round up of 2011. You have made me want to compile one too. Though im kinda thinking my year wasn’t as interesting as yours. Look at how small the tigers were!
    Love & good wishes for 2012 sweetie
