Happy New Year with a warm welcome to 2017

Happy New Year to you all, my
lovely readers ....

I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and that you did not eat too many mince pies ( oh well it is Christmas!)

Tonight is the eve of a New Year and we will be welcoming in 2017 can you believe it.... We are celebrating with friends and we are a jolly bunch so it will be fun.  It will be time to open my jar and look at all the lovely things that happened this year.

I put a little note in a vintage Kilner jar when a great thing happens or a lovely day out then at the end of the year I tip them all out and read them.  It is a great thing to do and then of course it is ready for 2017 to do the same thing.  Sometimes we say that we will be glad when this year is over! I have said it before myself but I must tell you when you write on a little bit of paper a good thing and pop it in the jar they add up and you realise the year has not been all bad ....

I pop in ticket stubbs from the cinema on a date night with my husband and the date or something like a catch up with a friend out for coffee and cake.  Anything that has been good and fun.  I use one of my decorated Kilner jars with the pin cushion on top and pin things to the top as well ... I started doing this memory jar a few years ago now and love doing it, surprising what you forget that you have done or achieved over the year ..

Well all that is left to say to you now is Thank You all for supporting me throughout the year.  It has been lovely to know you are enjoying my blog and I would like to thank you all for supporting me through this difficult time with my Mum it is appreciated and you all make me smile.  I love to read your comments on here and hope that you continue to enjoy coming along here to read my ramblings...  To all of my lovely readers and to those who regularly read and leave comments I wish you all a Happy 2017 with good health and lots of creativity and vintage stitchery time.


Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Chorus.-For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye'll be your pint stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak a cup o'kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit,
Sin' auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid haeroar'd
Sin' auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

And there's a hand, my trusty fere!
And gie's a hand O' thine!
And we'll tak a right gude-willie waught,
For Auld Lang Syne. 


  1. Happy New year. I will look forward as always to read your posts.

    I am going to do the jar this year because there are a lot of forgotten things I didn't blog about because they wouldn't interest anybody else.
