Home bears hello 2017

Happy New Year everyone!!

I actually can’t believe how quickly 2016 flew by!

The above image is a collection of all my monthly collages on Instagram, as I said over on IG it was a year of ‘B’s”….blooms, bunnies, bears and a baby.

There were quite a few animals during 2016……61 in total all living in various places across the globe. A big thank you to everyone who gave one a home.

Of course without a doubt the highlight of 2016 was the birth of our granddaughter Amelie, words can’t express the joy she has brought to our lives.

And so on to 2017….I do love a bright shiny new year, I hope its a good one for us all.

I just love the words on the front of my new diary!

So with my best wishes for 2017, I’ll leave you with this hopeful image of little tete-a-tete daffodils on my dresser……….it’s pre-spring now you know!!!! 🙂

Happy New Year Vivienne!! I hope 2017 brings you health and happiness. I’m sure you’re not enjoying this cold snap, so roll on Pre-Spring as well (or is it Pre-Summer??!). Have a lovely weekend, see you over on Instagram. Bxx

Missed commenting on this . You had a wonderful year last year I think . So many bunnies and their friends , foxes and mice . But the nicest thing of all is of course your own little granddaughter
