A Pictorial Mosaic of 2008...

They say a picture is worth a thousand words...


(click photo to enlarge)

Cindy at My Romantic Home had a wonderful idea. She decided to host a pictorial mosaic of "2008 - A Year in Review." So rather than telling you about all the fun cottage colors I use to decorate our 'enchanted cottage' (split entry), I can show you!

What a great idea, Cindy! I can't wait to see everyone's mosaics! Be sure to visit Cindy's blog for a list of all participating bloggers, or to participate yourself!!

I loved your photos. They are beautifulbut I especially love the squirrel eating seed. We have always fed our squirrels and for years I had many squirrels that would take peanuts from my hand, and I too have named many of them.Have a Happy New Year.

My personal favorite would have to be the little spot with the cozy chair. I can see myself getting a lot of reading done in such a lovely nook!

Hi Donna,
What a wonderful mosaic! I have always loved the romantic, cottagy look, unfortunately my family doesn't. Can you believe that? lol! I know I would feel instantly at home if I were to walk through your front door.

Your squirrel header is so great! Isn't he/she gorgeous! Look at that tail! That squirrel is definitely living the good life ; )
