Welcome 2011!

It's hard to believe Christmas vacation is over. It is 2011. New years are all always such exciting times. It's a time for change, to clean out, re-do, re-organize....set new goals. I have many goals in several areas of my life (you know- the old eat better, exercise more, blah blah blah) but I also have big goals for myself and this little blog and shop adventure we have going on here at Jazz!

I had a wonderful holiday with family and friends.

It included plenty of beautiful snowy mornings~

Holiday bow dog-wrestling~

Sledding with the kiddos~

Watching kids in puffy winter snowsuits navigate stairs (yep, he made it to the top!)

I received so many special gifts but one of them which you might already have or should quickly head out to get is The Farm Chicks Christmas book~


 I would curl up every afternoon with hot cocoa next to the tree and pour over all it's vintage goodness from cover to cover.

Like this campy porch, so simple and festive!

And this kitchen, isn't it amazing? You see so many white kitchens out there these days, but the rich tones of this black and wood kitchen with vintage touches are just too cool.

I had limited computer access over my vacation so it will be great to be back online this week catching up with your blogs and holiday adventures!

Happy New Year everyone!

Welcome back! It looks like you had a great time. I want some SNOW! Bring that book next time you come so I can peek though it. If it's a keeper I may have to get one. I got a gift card from my big sis at the bookstore I'm itching to use!
