Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I hope you all don't think I'm late in my wishes, somehow when the kids go back to school it marks(for me) the beginning of the new year. 
This year I plan to share more about shopping for and selecting antiques that fit your home and decor style.  I'll be sharing the do's and don't along with what I believe is a fair price to pay for an assortment of antiques both large and small.

There will lots and lots of rearranging of vignettes through out our house!

Tablescapes will continue to be a part of my blog.  Some of my most viewed posts have been tablescapes which tells me you all like those. 

I've been working on my closet with a complete gut job that I hope to have up on the blog soon.

 I'll include things like what made me chose the system and finishes along with what it cost!
There will be trips, I'm already planning 3!

 Ya'll our older son's girlfriend makes the absolute best spaghetti ever and that will come soon.  You won't dare wanna miss that!
I hope to share a little bit more of my actual life and everyday joys and opportunities I have.  One thing I'm doing right now is the 14 week Home Organization Challenge that a Bowl Full of Lemons hosts each year.  If you find yourself or your home in need of a bit or organizing or sprucing up join all of us that have already started the purge!  I'll share the corner of my dining room where I'm piling that I've purged that will end up at our local Salvation Army later today on my Instagram stories.

Today, my senior makes his last back to school trip after Christmas break.  John has less than 135 days left of high school and somehow that catches in my throat.  Later on I will be sharing all about our college visits and the things we wished we knew then and the changes we would make if we had a do over.

A post I absolutely dread writing about will be the sending my child away to college....y'all how can it be that the "baby" will leave the nest in just 8 months.  I'll share his highs and my lows through the entire process.

I don't always make new years resolutions but this year I've made 2.  I plan to share each month all through the year how I'm doing with those.  What are those resolutions you ask?  Keeping my car clean and keeping our garage tidy.  I'm gonna be real, my car looks like a homeless shelter often times and it makes me feel icky.  This IS the year I will make this change!  Our garage...I have no words.  I'll share pics  of it as soon as it warms up a bit!

A number of years ago the big thing with bloggers was to post their word of the year early in January.  When that fad fell by the wayside I will admit that I've missed it.  I found it inspiring to have a glimpse into what others in my profession selected for their word.  While I'm not bringing that back, I do want you all to know that my goal for the year not just in regards to blogging but in my life as a whole is to stay motivated.
Motivation is key to everything we take on in life.  

As we begin this new year, my wish for each one of you is peace, love and the ability to stay motivated in all your endeavors!

  1. Happy New Year Tamyra! I am looking forward to reading your blog again this year. You have got some really great ideas for it this year. I like your goals too....I need to work on my car and my garage. It is so much nicer when they are both clean. And let's not even talk about John graduating or I will be all emotional with you! I think we need a resolution to get together this month! How about meeting in Pine Mountain one day soon? Kathy

  2. WE MUST plan some time to get together for sure Kathy!
