Happy New Year!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM 
DEB AND BARBARA!

Happy New Year from Barbara's Watercolour home and Deb's Gingerbread home! Wishing all of you a healthy, joyous, take-chances New Year. Please join us in 2013! 



Barbara: This is a small painting of my home, given to us by our lovely real estate agent when we bought it. Of course, much has changed since 1996, but much has also stayed the same. Isn't that the nicest way?
This is one of the prettiest versions of Auld Lang Syne that we've ever heard:

    1. Shalaka I did not mean to imply that Colin did the gingerbread house. Can't remember saying that. Sorry if it was misleading. We bought it from a very talented woman. I posted her webiste two years ago when she did one for us. She is Gingerbread Creations in Ontario.

    2. Somehow, I now feel less inadequate knowing you did not make that gingerbread house yourself, Deb. Happy new year to you and your families!

    3. ohh. I thought maybe he made that. I thought probably you guys bought it but I think you mentioned something about this the last time and I thought Colin made it himself. Sorry.
      But I really thought he made it. But what the hell, he still cooks, doesnt he? That beats everything. Lol

  11. That song was a perfect start to my day. I have been nursing a cold/flu for the past couple of days and that song just hit the spot. I sat here drinking my tea and feeling all calm and peaceful while I watched the video. :)
    And I love the art of you guy's houses! A wonderful way to view them I do think. :)
    Off now to hunt down some more cough drops and tissues. ;)
    Happy 2013 <3

  12. Happy New Year Everyone. Everyone had a Christmas Flu. Mine decided to join me on New year's eve. Gravol has been my friend.

    May 2013 bring you joy and happiness. And, may you all be able to achieve your goals for 2013 (rather than New Year's resolutions because resolutions are based on negatives rather than positives - my uncle made a very strong argument about that in his blog...)

    Anyhow have a good oen.

  13. A perfect sentiment Jo, thanks so much for that. I wish you firstly, restored health and secondly all the good and wonderful adventures and joy the new year has in store for you.

    I can't add anything that hasn't been said, but I pour my love and happy wishes for all's New Year, and hope great and true things for all.

    I thank you all for such beautiful support and camaraderie.

    cheers, my friends!

    so much love,

    Souz

    1. I don't think Deb took any closer pics, Lana, but it's sooo beautiful in real life. She credits the woman who built it in her comment above -- and it's a recreation of Deb's own house!
