a fresh start | New Years

A little old.  A little new.  My idea of a "fresh start" does not include throwing out the old and replacing with the new.  Instead, in this new year, I will be taking stock of what I have and looking at it with a fresh set of eyes.  I've already paired my mother's lace table cloth with a modern print napkin.  I am mixing the gold garland from Christmases past with silver and glass.  The place setting look will be finished with these adorable bells I received as a thoughtful gift.  The table is finished.  On to the living room.  Time to move the furniture and create a new space...
