Dreams and Goals for the New Year 2011

With all the fun and spark of fireworks
to herald a new year
comes the forming of dreams and goals
for the year 2011My first one really needs to be
to get more rest.
With always wanting to do so much
I often run low on rest
I'd also love to get some glass drawers!

To launch my new website
which will include
my own exclusive range of jewelry

Now my garden almost looks complete
To enjoy more alfresco dining

(Via Little Emma English Home)

To go back to Bali
( more serious shopping)

To learn more
about photography and graphic design
Love this style and would love to create my own

The sun on the back windows
lets in so much heat
so I would like to source
a version of outside shutters

Would like to indulge in more fresh flowers
And pick more from my own garden
especially in Summer

To help my son
who wants to study fashion
and create something different and special
(so Ive started collecting pics for him).
Hope he'll make me some.

And finally
To simply have lots of "Fun"
To me balloons symbolise this
and always bring
a sense of happiness!

  10. Hi Dear Fiona
    Happy New Year.. I've been so slack at visiting ppl.. still with fickle internet.. perhaps I'll be able to change that this year..

    So.. i love all the touches of blue in this post.. and would love that blue bedroom with touches of grey/brown... it would go great with my pics.. hahaha...

    I hope this year brings you much happiness and lots of fun.. and wouldn't it be great to have some travel also!! Take care xxx Julie

  11. Hi Fiona, I was awarded the Stylish Blogger Award and have passed it along to you. The details are on my blog. Thanks for being a great inspiration. Lulu.

  12. Wonderful list of hopes and dreams for the new year! I'm looking forward to your new website. I, too, make jewelry but not as often as I once did. Time gets away from me with 3 children and a husband, school and life itself.
    Wishing you a wonderful 2011 and may all of your dreams come true!
    xoxo, B

  13. Dearest Fiona .. Happy New Year to you my dear friend! I am so sorry I have not been by for a little while but the floods in Queensland have been pre-occupying our thoughts. We are still currently stranded in Brisbane/Gold Coast because the airport at home is closed and now there is further flooding happening in Brisbane. I wish you a beautiful year ahead and I so excited to see what you have in store for us. I love your pictures and your dreams for this year.
    best wishes
