Welcome to 2011!

Maybe you partied last night... or had a quiet time at home?

Ours was the ALWAYS!


Now there's a word!

Earlier in the day on NYE...

'What would you like to do today?'


I ALWAYS say!! ) or nearly ALWAYS!

And, of course, ALWAYS making the usual beeline for the vintage bits !

ALWAYS a pleasure to chat to the owner!

ALWAYS something new upon which to feast one's eyes.

ALWAYS so many pretty things.

ALWAYS the same hustle and bustle going on outside!

ALWAYS a grand collection of books through which to rummage.

ALWAYS plenty of ideas for gifts!

And ALWAYS something outside at which to oooh and ahhh !

ALWAYS making our way to the market!

ALWAYS a cheery hello from the stall holder.

Even though it was a cold and dull day...

her smile shone through! As ALWAYS!

And ALWAYS ending up at The Seven Stars, for lunch!!

Wouldn't you want to do that ALWAYS? ;-)

Meanwhile I wish you all

A Very Happy and Peaceful New Year !

See you next year!

Well... that was Christmas!
How quickly did it pass by?

(Christmas angel from Totnes market...
apparently, they are made in Yorkshire.)

I have to admit that I love the run up to Christmas

(especially Christmas Eve!) more than the actual day!

Anyway, it was a lovely, family Christmas and

here are one or two things which came my way....

Plus.. I got an early birthday present from dear Mr S!

Just before Christmas, my Nikon Coolpix camera packed up!
I was gutted! It went everywhere with me!

With the cost to repair it being around £200 (gulp!) ,
I did a bit of research and I found a lovely little camera
which, so far, has not failed to disappoint!

A Panasonic Lumix TZ8

Nice and easy to use..and a lot less cumbersome.

Meanwhile, I hope that you all had a wonderful, Christmas!

See you next year!!
