  11. Wow! Your photo is breathtaking! So New England. I was born and grew up in Maine.. though i reside in OR now. Beautiful pictures like that make me feel a little homesick, but in a good way with wonderful memories. Happy, Splendid New Year to you!

  13. Joan,
    That image is breathtaking...Just as the one in your previous post. Your house on the hill with the lights glowing warmly just as total darkness is about to fall. I've come back to look at this several times. I thought it was very gracious of you to list every name and place of your followers. I'm so happy to have found you and look forward to seeing what you come up with in 2012!

  21. Sally and I have settled on an inspirational motto for the year - "This year is our year!" I think we'll adopt the RWE quote as our daily inspiration.

    2012?
    Bring it on!

    Cheers,
    John

  37. loved your comment today - so true!
    we don't do clothes, we do houses!!!!! sometimes my mother comes up with good savings. another one is 'always keep your own money to yourself' = have your own little nest egg for mani/pedis and housekeepers without having to ask your husband for it!!!! another one was "it's just a easy to marry rich as it is poor.' well, i didn't listen to that one!!!! but it all worked out eventually. but when w =e married, a comma in the paycheck called for celebration. haha!!!!

    hope you had a wonderful holiday! our new hampshire boy is with us for dec/jan and we are having a great time.

  41. Hi Joan and Dan! Happy New Year

    I missed the calling card post but I will leave one now:

    I am just a person, who loves to live my life fully and I try to be the best I can be. I have a son and a wonderful husband. Oh and a very sassy little lab named Millie. I too have a love of houses and more importantly I embrace the concept of a home...because there is a big difference.

    Joan, your blog is so wonderful and I read it as much as I can. Thank you for sharing your love of a house and all the wonderful things that happen when people step through your front door.

    best, Kelley

  44. I am late in leaving my calling card but sometimes the one who comes last is remembered the most.
    My Mother says that if anyone can manage to be late to their own funeral it will be me.

    I enjoy the lovely pictures of your home and I thank the two of you for sharing it with me. For you see I see so much that is lovely and comfortable in your home.

  45. I'm so behind in my blog reading, but I had to stop in and tell you that this is just a lovely picture. I love the feeling I get when I look at it. Thank you for sharing. Hope you're having a good evening. Toodles, Kathrym @TheDedicatedHouse
