Happy New Year Bloggy Mates!

I am so happy to see in a new year, aren't you? I really enjoy them. My all-time favourite thing to do on January 1st. is to write the 25 things that I feel I achieved during the previous year and then write 25 things I'd like to achieve in the new year. Sounds very Pollyanna, I know, but I find it quite therapeutic - when do we ever sit down and give ourselves a little pat on the back? (And then allow ourselves some time to dream?)

One thing is for sure, this blog has been a positive inclusion in my life in 2009. I have met many wonderful people and been so inspired by the ideas of others in the blogsphere. In all honesty, I love the personal expression that blogging allows and I feel honoured to read the journeys of others. Sure, we show the side of ourselves we are happy for the world to see, but I think we have much to learn from each other.
Thank-you so much for joining me on my blogging journey, I really see this first year as a bit of a practice - you have watched me slowly getting my groove on! Congrats to that, you patient things!

I have one new year's wish for this blog in 2010;
- I'd love all those people who enjoy this blog on a regular basis to pop me on their blogroll, that'd be real nice!

Of course, there are things I am dreaming up and certain things that I'll be changing - the lack of proper header for one. So I hope you will join me for more bloglove in 2010.

Be safe, be well and blog on!!!
Happy New Year!

For someone like moi who has just got off their behind and started a blog (so i could go into 2010 ahead on the resolution tally) - I love what you've had to say in this post. Gives me a lovely glimmer of the fun times ahead.

I have been a lurker around your blog for some time, and have a serious crush on several of your posters! - so you're already on my blog list! Not that i imagine the traffic coming from mine will rock your blogging world, but your blog was one of my first!

All the best for 2010, jules

hi shelley,
between being a customer (we LOVE our AMEUBLEMENT poster - thankyou thankyou) and friend of a friend (hi capt'n kk) i am a regular reader of your blog - but as i mentioned to you in your shop i am a BLOGEE - a rare breed, i think - who only reads blogs and does not have one of her own! but thought i would use the new year as an excuse to write and say how i do enjoy digesting your blog and i will use good old word of mouth to pass it on. keep on blogging! leah :)

Hi there! Just happily discovered your blog and am excited to look through your past year. This is a charming image from TWA. I bet your collection is incredible.

Dear Shelley
Well I have been slack getting around everyone's blogs so sorry about the belated "Happy New Year'!!!

I also thought I had you on my blogroll already.. you've been cheering me on since the beginning!! well I've fixed that now too...

I have to say I was so tempted during your sale.. your posters are divine. I've always had a fascination with posters from the early and mid 1900's.

Once again Shelley HAPPY NEW YEAR x Julie


Happy belated new year! All the best to you in 2010!
