Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you!

I hope that you had a fabulous celebration yesterday! My evening was wonderful and was the perfect close to 2011, and opening to 2012. And with a great start, I woke up this morning rather later than usual, but feeling well-rested and refreshed on this very sunny Sunday, and feeling a little excited for what is in store...

One thing is for certain, I feel very happy and fortunate to enjoy your company and share in this little slice of the world with you, so fondly known as blogging. I personally choose not to make a list of resolutions per say, but rather consider different hopes—and I have a number this year—some small and others, large. What are your hopes for 2012?

  1. Happy New Year lovely Sarah, thank you for all the inspiration and beauty you have brought us so far,c ant wait to follow along in 2012!! xo

  2. That first image is so beautiful!!

    Happy New Year Sarah, I hope 2012 is wonderful for you.

    Thanks for all your lovely comments xx

  3. Absolutely beautiful photos! I adore Clemence Poesy.
    New Year's is such a wonderful holiday and I so look forward to it. It's such a nice time to start new things and resolve.
    I hope this year will be beautiful.

  4. Happy New Year, Sarah! I wish you a wonderful 2012, may it bring you health, happiness and everything you wish for. xo

  5. Dearest Sarah,

    Smart for not per say making resolutions! It is more important to live 365 days a year as intens and positive as we can with indeed high hopes for peace and other things that will happen in our lives... Having faith is a big one; together with hope and love it forms the triangle of our lives.

    Love to you,


  6. Happy New Year Sarah!
    I love these photos of Clémence Poésy, I have them in my inspiration folder ;-)
    I'm not making any resolutions, I'll just hope for the best and accept whatever life throws at me.

  7. To finally finish a first draft of my novel. It's a goal, rather than a resolution.

  17. There is something wonderful about a black maxi dress during the day. That third to last picture is wonderful - the lighting, the drape, I love that it looks like there's a collar to it - sort of a maxi shirt dress. How beautiful and inspiring. Happy new year!!

  18. My fav. combo has always been the rustic/lux. Neither take the other too seriously

  19. I do not make resolutions, either.

    Instead, I made "alterations" as I wrote a few years ago here:

  20. Ebeth: there is, isn't there? I would love to purchase one :) ... in which I would have to take straight to the tailor!

    LilyFair Drapery, Karen Hunt: Completely!

    Bruce: I will definitely read your past post—that is a great approach to the new year :)

  21. Beautiful, as usual! Lovely Clemence! Happy New Year, Sarah! Hope 2012 brings great things for you!!

  22. Dear lovely Sarah, wishing you all wonderful things this new year! I feel so hopeful this new year, as if we really do have a clean slate. So glad we are friends in this vast blogging world--you add so much beauty to it and always inspire me!
