Happy New Year!

I will be ringing in the new year while reading these. Can you believe the cake on Victoria? get me a fork.
Also at the library I got this. These books are crazy silly and make me laugh very high on my list right now.

And just what would the last post of the year be with out a picture of a dump find?
I found this cutie when I went to the dump for work. It is painted a very pale yellow I just cleaned it up
and it is good to go, solid as a rock. I am thinking it may look great with a nice dark red with some sanding so the yellow shows through a little bit of French country.

We have been watching the Marx Brothers marathon on Tuner Classic Movies.
One movie is enough for me but it makes David laugh and the sound of him laughing is such sweet music.
This has been a hard year but we have had many blessing along the way.
I prefer to think of those blessings as we go into the new year.

The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.

Oh my word Cathy, I have the mate to your dump find. My stand previously belonged to my late mother in-law. The little stand is on my 2012 to do list, a new paint job is certainly required. Happy New Year! Julie.

Hey, you're my kind of a party girl! A few good magazines and old classic movies foot the bill!

Happy New Year to both of you. I hope good things continue for David. I used to have that exact little table.

Don't you just love getting your new magazines?! ME TOO! :) My hair stylist is reading all of the Janet Evanovich books right now. She LOVES them!!

That little table is darling. The red will look great.

Happy New Year!

Great find on the table! I have not read any of her books, but have a friend that keeps telling me that I need to read them. I could use some good laughing books, everything I pick up seems to be too dark for me lately. Glad that David is doing better, JWS keeps the house that hot and he is not sick....way too hot for a 50 something menopausal woman like me!
Happy New Year!

GREAT table! I love your idea about the red with the yellow showing through.

Laughter releases endorphins - the body's natural pain killer - so whenever I could through my years of nursing, I would get my patients laughing. We both felt better.

Happy New Year!
