Oh sadness, friends. It's back to the real world for me today. Even though it's the 4th it sort of feels like the actual and more official beginning of the year. And of course it means saying goodbye to the holiday season. I'm not quite ready to take down this year's holiday card collection. I loved how they looked simply hung with clothespins and string on our exposed brick wall. A lovely focal point indeed.
And in other news, I purchased a new bag yesterday. I deserved a Happy New Year present, don't you think? I went here and got this exact bag but the color (which is called "taupe") is a lighter/warmer version than this grey. Oh, how I love it! So yes, sadly I did have to come back to work today. But at least I am facing this new year with a sassy new bag. (I'm trying to see the silver lining here). Hope your return to reality is easy and smooth, my dear pals.
