Merry Christmas

This is my last post before I fly home for Christmas, so I want to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year. I will be back in January with some fun posts - we are revisiting some of the Style Resolutions from last year to assess how successful the writers were. Then, we will have a new series of Style Resolutions for 2010 from some British bloggers. Would you like to take part? I'm looking for perhaps one more British blogger to take part. Leave me a comment if you are interested - please note that if you leave me an anonymous comment, or your blogger profile is not enabled, then I can't respond to you.

I want to leave you with some of my favourite blog posts from 2009 from different bloggers around the world. This is a pretty succinct list, as there have been so many I have enjoyed, and so many ideas I have taken from them.

Have a great Christmas!

*Adored this perpetual anniversary gift
*Hot chocolate gift
*A lace fence

I'm not sure if this is just a style resolution or a lifestyle revolution but I'll be taking up Dottie Angle's challenge of an utmost kind next year. My family are quaking in their boots!
Have a wonderful Christmas

Merry Chritmas Lynne! I am so glad I found your blog this year!

Lynne said...

Pixelhazard, my friend put hers on a string which went up over the top of the door and was pinned on the inside - I'm going to try that next year as there's nowhere to hang mine on the front of the door either.
