Happy New Year to you!!




I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing and fun holiday season and you are excited as I am about this new year!  I think it is going to be a great one.  
Thank you to everyone who left your calling card on the Christmas tray for our holiday tradition.  I heard from several people that they tried and couldn't leave their card.  I am sorry for the
blogger issue, but so appreciate that you tried and then contacted me on Instagram and email.  It is always so lovely to hear from all of you and read about you; and is nice to hear from those of you who usually come and go quietly.  Your comments remind me that you are still here reading and inspire me to continue to write, so thank you!

Speaking of which...  I am really excited about upcoming blog posts I have to share with you, so please stay tuned!  Please don't miss the adorable "Beasley" -my adoptable dog of the week from Lytle, Texas who is available for transport to the east or west coast!
You must watch the video!!  He is just so sweet and precious!  Such a lovebug!  He also has a brother that looks just like him.  Would love for you to share all the dogs that I post so that together we can find them their forever homes.

Until then... I wish you health, peace, love and joy in the new year!

Happy New Year! Beasley is adorable. I couldn't figure out how to share his information, which I have done in the past.
Let me know if I'm missing something.
xo,

I really, really enjoy your blog and when I read no other, I always read yours. Like you, I love animals, but especially dogs. I have four rescues of my own. They bring such joy. As far as I am concerned, there is a reason dog is God spelled backwards. They are a real time example of eternal love!

Happy New Year to you too! I think I am one who tried to leave a calling card and it didn't "take"...I can never figure out the eccentricities of posting! I did want to say thank you for your earlier posting about the Denham Springs, LA Animal Shelter. I am sure you followed the amazing story of contributions from all over the country. That was such a gratifying response. My late rescue dog, Tilly, looked so much like your girls but with not quite so much white on her chest. I "took her in temporarily" to help a friend who had "found her" on a busy highway but who also had travel plans with no one to take care of the new baby. The temporary baby sitting arrangement lasted fourteen years..still miss her. All the best for 2017 from MS.

Just found your blog, we did the same thing with an 1835 farmhouse that was falling down around itself! Love your decorating style - elegant and livable. I also assist several dog rescues down south, we hold adoption events here in CT frequently for dogs who were destined for Death Row until their rescues pulled them. One of my three dogs was found on death row in Georgia!

Will add you to my blog roll and I couldn't agree more, New England is such a lovely area of the country, we're lucky to live here.

Happy new year Joan. I listed your blog as one of my favorites on The Gardener's Cottage blog. I hope some new readers find you!

“In renovating [a kitchen], you must have a very clear vision of what you want your space to ‘feel’ and ‘look’ like, because at every single turn, some salesperson/contractor/carpenter/painter/plumber/etc. will try to talk you into their vision,”

What great advice! Thank you for sharing your lovely kitchen. The timeless design and attention to detail truly stands out.
