New Year Greetings!

 “Make yourselves nests of pleasant thoughts…  Bright fancies, satisfied  memories, noble histories, faithful sayings, treasure-houses of precious and restful thoughts, which care cannot disturb, nor pain make gloomy, nor poverty take away from us, ~ houses built without hands, for our souls to live in.”

John Ruskin (1819-1900)


My wish for you in the new year is for good health, peace, prosperity, and a deep and happy heart! I sincerely appreciate your patronage and your friendship and eagerly look forward to the coming year.

 A toast for the New Year:

“Brew me a cup for a winter's night.
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I'll toast your bright eyes, my sweetheart fair.”

~Minna Thomas Antrim (1902, A Book of Toasts)~
