Wishing all of you a very wonderful and Happy New Year!!
There may be peace without joy, and joy without peace, but the two combined
make happiness
        - John Buchan

A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a
little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so
often - just to save it from drying out completely.
Pam Brown

A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.

You got me with the mellow orange glass reflection and the Hubbard quote you paired it with today, Sylvia. I wish you a new year of joy and health... and many fun hours of blogging!

Pat said...

Each of these photos is stunning in its own unique way. I especially like the amber shadow of the vase.

I'm looking forward to a Tacoma Rose chocolate now...lol!

Great reflections as always, Sylvia. Have a very Happy New Year!

Patricia K. Lichen said...

Ah, it took reading these comments for me to get the double meaning of "reflections."

Happy new year!

Ann said...

The chocolate, what % is it, my son likes 75%, and I prefer the plain milk with lots of nuts.

Happy New Year,

James said...

The top one is beautiful the bottom one is unique and creative and the middle one is like a painting. Great shots!

I wish you a very Happy New Year!

Sallie said...

Beautiful pictures in this post -- but your friends' header this time is just downright mean ;>))))).... Have you seen the cartoon of the "middle-aged" woman who is saying 'hand over the chocolate and the wine and nobody gets hurt?"

Karen said...

Beauties Sylvia! Love the glass. Wishing you all the best in 2012!

nana_ang_poppaphil said...

And once again your header is hilarious.

Happy New Year, let's make 2012 one to remember.xx

Wonderful collection of pictures . Happy new year .

Lee Spangler said...

Wonderful quotes about friendship. They say positive things about human relationships at a time when there is so much stress and negativity.

Jack said...

Excellent, Sylvia. Three very different photos.

Genie said...

What a lovely series, but the last shot has to be by far my favorite. The reflection of the wine glass is awesome...love the colors. and your new banner is even cuter than the last. You are one lucky gal to have such a talented friend. Her work is definitely one of a kind. genie

Martha Z said...

Scott said...

Sylvia...that last photo and quote say it all, doesn't it? great is a friend who has stuck with you through thick and thin; do you have one of those kinds of friends? Mine is Susan, a college friend and sorority sister-we reunited after 20 years and I just love her to pieces and it's the same for her.
Happy New Year!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
