I enjoy looking back… I love reminiscing.

Reminders of what has passed triggers memories and sets in place an unintentional wish list for the future.

It’s surprising how much we can accomplish in 365 days, how much we can see and discover… how much we learn.

Wishes for 2014? Apart from the most important… health, happiness and laughter.

My resolution most years is the same… contentment… learning to be still and to appreciate…

 

Happy, happy New Year and may all your dreams come true… xv

This is wonderful! I love your “year in pictures”, it’s a gift to family and friends. I will borrow your idea and put one of my own together. Thank you and have a Happy and Healthy New Year. May all your dreams come true.

The beautiful scenes, the feeling of warmth or crispness depending on the season, the “sound of life,” imagining the delightful tastes of food so artfully presented, and the gorgeous aroma of roses. These lovely pictures aroused all of my senses. I love being swept away when I visit your blog Vicki.

Bonjour beautiful soul!

I did a post last New Year’s Eve called, “A picture is worth a thousand memories” and for me being such a visual “poet”, what I see moves me so. I can look at a photo of a relative I never knew from way back in the late 1890s and feel so connected. I adore your VISUAL sensitivity and that is perhaps why you are such a great photo stylist and home decorater. We have enjoyed every post you have delivered to us, but most of all, the woman behind it all.

Success and love to you dearest Vicki, in 2014 and always! Anita

A fabulous snapshot of the wonderful year that was at FE Vicki. Sadly I could not do the same over at The Hedge, as every image would be of me yelling at MOTH to get off the sofa & get cracking with this very slow renovation!
Love Millie xx

Beautiful memories of 2013 in review – I spied your ‘Belle Fiore’ plate in the last mosaic – I had a set 30 years ago – I still love it!
