Happy New Year!

 
 
 
Happy New Year...2015 was a great year for me. One of my hopes was to have more fun, well that was certainly true! I've had some wonderful, wonderful experiences this year.
 
It was the year I turned 50, I'm still not sure how that happened, but happen it did...a few days ago, I celebrated it with lots of family and friends...and champagne, of course!
 
And 2016...well I'm hoping for Joy. Joy from new experiences, and Joy from those little, everyday things that I do. Those things that slip by, that we almost don't notice. Joy in the ordinary.
 
Already my mind is ticking over with ideas for my garden, and creations that will emerge from my studio.
 
Thank you all for being here with me this year, for reading my blog, for your support. It means so much.
 
 
HAPPY 2016!
 
 
Amanda :) xxx
