Belated Happy New Year

A belated Happy New Year to you all.  I have been very remiss in my postings and comments of late and I must try harder in 2012!

I wish you all a very happy and peaceful 2012.

This was the first Christmas since my Mum died.  One of the best Christmas presents I ever received was this antique Maltese scarf she gave me about 30 years ago.  I used to, and still do, wear it a lot.  The amethyst 'necklace' is the last present she gave me.

    Thankyou for your lovely comment- the pleasure was all mine, altho I wish none of it had been neccessary...
    Wishing you inspiration in 2012
