Between the years ...





Between the years
is a kind of nowhere land, a time that belongs to dreaming, thinking, sleeping, decluttering, planning - at least this is how a feel about these days after christmas. A break from "it all" to prepare for a whole new year of new beginnings and new adventures. I'll sign off until the beginning of January - with lots of new things to share with you. Enjoy this special time the way you like best - and have a wonderful start into 2012 - see you soon!

  1. A wonderful and happy start to the new year to you too, my lovely. The paint brushes remind me that I ought to find time to paint, but it's so dark and wintry these days....

  2. Oh yes...that's a good way to describe it. I wish you the VERY best in 2012, Martina! I hope you get some time to relax, rest and rejuvenate!

    Lovely photos by the way.

  3. MY DARLING FRIEND!!!! I am grateful that you came to visit me before you signed off...I notice that many people are not around for this week...Martina, it has been a lovely trip around the world with you my dear friend; your art has inspired me to look at life in a different way: THROUGH COLOR. Yes. Sounds strange, but before I "met" you, I was not one for much color. I still prefer my home décor to be neutral, but I am venturing out more with colors in other areas such as dress and art. But what is striking most of all is your wonderful friendship. I do hope you are better these days. My cold has lingered, and I am much better, but this strain of cold has really lasted VERY LONG!

    HUGS TO YOU DEAR FRIEND! Anita

  18. OH MY FRIEND!!!!!!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! I was JUST thinking of you as I was working down in my basement. I am having so much fun playing and are you feeling better? We finally got snow last night and it is howling wind outside. Winter is finally here. Be well my dear and thank you so much for your kind words about my birds! BLUE IS THE COLOR OF HAPPINESS, for me!

    GROSSES BISES! Anita
