What Will 2014 Bring? Here's Hoping...


Green Heron
1. Trip to Sanibel and Ding Darling for most awesome birding!





Weenies at Westminster
2. 2014 Westminster Kennel Club Show in NYC. Yipppeeeee!




The return of Lucy The Wonder Weenie
3. A new addition to the Wonder Weenie series. Hint: Santa might stop by for a visit!




Chihuly Glass
4. I'm hoping to make it to Seattle or Phoenix to see a Chihuly exhibit.




Year of the Lumberjack
5. Planning on writing 2 novellas, one about a lumberjack in Vermont.
One about a lumberjack in the North Pole who happens to be Santa's son. 
That's a lot of lumber.



New decorating scheme: Red and white combo
6. For some reason, I am obsessed with red/white decor, 
and now I want to redecorate my whole house. 
Here are some more ideas for this...







I'm going to keep at this until my husband notices and asks "Why is our house turning red and white?" 
Hopefully, that won't happen until I'm done.




Dahlias
7. This is my gardening goal for 2014...a dahlia collection. All different colors!



I hope all of you have something fun and exciting and new planned for 2014, too!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Love, 
Penelope

Lumberjack and Santa visits Lucy? It's gonna be a good year.

Sounds like a busy positive fun red and white year. My favorite decorating colors are red, white and black but hubs won't let me do it. Damn him!

Maggie Welsh said...

I love dahlias! And please post lots of pictures of your collection which you are going to accomplish even if I have to come up to Boston, borrow your car, and drive to the closest plant nursery and start it for you. If I can't plant my favorite flowers I'll make damn sure my friends do!

Happy New Year! I love red and white.
Looking forward to the new Lumberjack books.

Penelope said...

Thanks, Juju! I think it's gonna be a great year, too. :^)

BRING IT, 2014!

Julia...If I were single, my whole house would be shabby chic with tons of vintage fabrics. My hubby would bust a gut if I did that! He's cramping my style!

Penelope said...

Hi Maggie! Come up to Boston for a visit anytime!

Penelope said...

Hi Amber, Happy New Year to you, also!

Julia Barrett said...

Hey Pens - you and me both! Not your husband, mine. I would be sooooo shabby chic!

Is the Lumber Satan for real? Omg I want that one

Love the new header, Penny! It's fun and so you. Love the birds toasting. :)

Penelope said...

Julia....me too. Love shabby chic. Hubby would fling himself off a bridge if I did that!

Penelope said...

Blodeuedd....I'm assuming you mean Santa not Satan, although that just gave me an idea for a horror story!

Penelope said...

Thanks, Lindsay! I love it, too!
