Home animals Review of 2012

2012a Collage

It was so hard to choose just one photo to represent each month of 2012 as I have uploaded so many during the year! I have tried to cover everything that this little blog is about as well as representing the year that was 2012.

As you know I believe it’s never too early to look for spring and I began the year doing just that, February brought Valentines Day and all it’s sweet treats!!
During March, while playing about with yarn and a crochet hook, I made a rabbit, her name was Lavender Rose, well wasn’t she the start of something, many, many more bunnies followed.
April brought us Easter, my very favourite time of year, bunnies and chocolate, who could ask for more!

May time is France time and we enjoyed a wonderful holiday in the south of France, while June brought us the Diamond Jubilee in all it’s red, white and blue glory!!
July was spent mostly in the garden and despite some unseasonal weather, flowers bloomed. From the end of July through to mid August we enjoyed the wonderful 2012 London Olympics and at the end of August we had a mini break to Edinburgh where I managed to tick something off my bucket list, seeing a panda in the flesh!!

Now of course the cats featured many times on my blog throughout the year, this particular photo is of Charlie helping me with my crochet in September. October brought autumn time and autumn crafting.
November as always makes us stop and remember the sacrifice of others.
Then quick as a flash we were in December, where I seemed to spend most of the month crocheting Christmas bunnies!

So here we are at the end of the what has seemed to me the fastest year ever! Generally it has been a good year and we have had lots of enjoyable times. Bunnies always feature on my blog but this year they featured strongly, I have had so much fun making them and thank you for all your encouragement and support. Thank you all so much for being with me during 2012, thanks for your visits, your lovely comments and your friendship, the blogging community is a wonderful thing and I’m so happy to be a part of it.

So a new year beckons and for us personally I expect the first six months are going to be a very busy time as we have our daughter’s wedding in July. I fully intend to keep on making bunnies and hopefully there’ll be lots more cats, flowers, gardening and outings in this little space too. I do hope you’ll join me and if I could ask one thing of 2013, it would be, please go a bit slower than 2012!!

All that remains is for me to wish you all a very happy, healthy, peaceful and wonderful new year!!! 🙂

What a beautiful review, Vivienne, and I must say I knew from the FIRST bunny that you’ll be making manymanymany of them 🙂 They’re just so you and…perfect.
I wish you a wonderful New Year, and tomorrow is the first day of the Pre-Spring in your calendar, and I am so following it too! You’ll have the loveliest time planning and making THE wedding happen, and we all on this side of the screen wish you share some of it with us too! Weddings…ah…

What a sweet review of your year Vivienne, a rather lovely year too by the look of the pictures. But it does sound like 2013 could be even better with a such a special wedding coming up. Here’s wishing you a lovely year with a slower pace so you can savour every moment before it whizzes by – and may time go especially slowly on that special day in July x

Happy happy New Year to you, Vivienne! Love seeing many familiar scenes in your year in review. It sounds like 2013 is going to be quite exciting and I doubt it will be any bit slower. BUT….we can hope and dream and decide to live each day with purpose and gratitude – which is what I believe people who take photos and notes and share on a blog do! Looking forward to your new posts in 2013, and I thank YOU for being such a faithful friend this past year! xo Karen
