Bye Bye Santa!

Well, Christmas has been and gone amidst a flurry of snow, huge spending, food shopping, present wrapping and exhaustion.  I still have my family get together to look forward to, which is later than planned this year due to the very bad weather we have had and is scheduled for this coming weekend, to coincide with a very special birthday I have!

I am starting to get that "get rid of the Christmas decorations now" feeling but can't at the moment as Mr V-B likes them up as long as possible so I have started in a small way by having a tidy up of my blog.  The vintage Santa background had to go, along with several Christmassy photos!  I'm looking forward to Spring already and can't wait to get back into the usual routine.

I would like to wish all my friends, followers and fellow bloggers a very Happy New Year and a healthy and prosperous 2011.

To celebrate my special birthday, here are a few images for you :-





Enjoy!

Oh, a 'special' birthday????? Those are always nice....I hope it's wonderful.

Love the new look of your blog, too. I had the urge to do exactly as you did the other day and changed mine around, too. A new year....a new look.

As always, you are in inspiration. Hope you are getting better weather in your area. We (in Colorado) have had very little snow this year, so it's strange!

Have a Happy New Year AND a splendid birthday!

Hugs,
Jan

Thanks for the images, always fun to have something new to play with. I chose a winter theme for my blog in December, so I'll be content with it for a while yet but I'm itching to get the household decorations put away.
Happy New Year to you!

Thanks for your lovely comments; mum is awaiting an operation (which had to be postponed because silly NY revellers took her place in the queue :-( )We are keeping our fingers crossed for Tuesday now.
Hope 2011 is a wonderful year for you....
