Imagine my surprise when Eddie Ross e-mailed me on Christmas Day to let me know that I had won this lovely mercury glass bowl.  The one thing I adore about the holidays are all the silver and gold.  How pretty this dish will be for serving little candies or even some home made jam.
Mercury glass objects add an elegant touch to any table.  Thank-you Eddie!

Wishing each of you a Happy New Year full of sparkly surprises.  One dear friend said, "A New Year is a time to find the surprise of each new day!"  Create, design and inspire the kind of year ahead you envision.  Each of us have special gifts and surprises to share.  I look forward to this New Year and sharing goodness with each of you.  I feel so lucky and fortunate to know that each day is full of special suprises and visitors like you who come from near and far.

Congrats Patricia, that bowl will look so lovely on your table! I just wanted to stop by and wish you the happiest of New Year's Eves and all bright and happy things for 2012. Thank you so much for the sweet card--I was down with the flu this year so missed out on most of the Christmas festivities, but am already planning next Christmas!

Lots of love to you!
