2009.......what will it bring? After putting away the Christmas decorations every year....I like to change a few things up. What a perfect have a clean slate. Here are a few changes I made. The boys gave me this gorgeous vase for Christmas, and I had the millinery flowers and vintage books......why not marry them together?
I have accumulated alot of vintage tarnished silver........just love it! I found this top to an old heater at a flea market and have been adding things to it......I added the white ribbon and roses and a little rhinestone bling. One way to reuse old junk.....and pretty finds combined.

It will be an interesting year. At work, things have slowed waaaaaaaaaay up and 3/4 of our dept is being farmed out to other depts. I am staying put and doing 2 different jobs. Everyone is worried and nervous. When the boss told the end of my birthday celebration....great timing! LOL! this verse kept running through my head .......
Jer 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

The gal that sits next to me, we have tried to remain positive while some others are freaking out. She always says.......It's not raining yet. Once on a way to a meeting, there was a chance of rain. She kept saying to the person who was driving..........oh, I don't want to get wet, my hair will be all wet, my clothes will be wet and I don't want to go to the meeting looking like that. After carrying on and on.......the other person hollered out....
IT'S NOT RAINING YET! And besides......I will drop you off at the door. So every morning we say good morning and reassure each other.....It's not raining yet!
