Happy New Year indeed!

We had a wonderful time last night at our friends house in Lancaster. Nothing better than good food, friends, wine and a roaring fire! What a great way to spend New Years Eve - and for once I went easy on the wine. By the way, the absolute BEST sandwich: crusty roll, homemade pesto, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, lettuce, prosciutto and a drizzle of balsamic!

Around 11pm last night I borrowed a computer to check my email and to my absolute delight I found out that I won 1st place in The Trail of Painted Ponies 4th Annual Holiday Design Contest!!! How cool is that! I was so excited, I could barely sleep. Click here for a link to the contest's home page.



Here's another design I entered into the contest.



Here 's to a happy, healthy and successful New Year!
