Tick Tock, Tick Tock!

We're nearing that magical hour
and I want to wish you the sincerest greetings
from the maison for New Year's Eve!

I wanted to share a few photos taken
by yours truly!

This is one of my very favorites of
a flea market find

I love to pieces... Joan of Arc
See what happens when you crawl the dirty floors
in an old antique store at marche aux puces?

My kind-hearted French Oaf
taken just last weekend

And very last... me and my French Oaf
I really need much longer arms
or learn how to use the timer on my camera
which I've put on my list for the New Year
Isn't he a good sport, me hugging on him
and a camera in that big, loving face?

Whatever you do for the New Year,
enjoy yourself and tell someone special
You Love Them!

Happiness to You~

PRECIOUS TRACIE! How lovely you look with Mr. Zeke! Oh I miss you! How is life out your way my dearest? What a great year it has been. Blogging has made it an even better experience, meeting new friends and connecting again with old friends and family. GOd has really used blogging as a tool of reconciliation as well! Bonne année ma chère, and may France be a part of your 2010!! Anita
