Nearly a year

...
gate and doorway in Italy last September

Wow, in 2 weeks it'll be a year since I started my blog. How should I mark the occasion? I'd like to do something since my blog has really been a life saver for me, giving me the clean space I needed which is lacking in my ground-to-a-halt-renovation at home. It'd be nice to do something which I associate with the blogging world.

Maybe I should start a meme, I've always wanted to know very specific things about people like what kind of nuts they love and hate. I know, it sounds a silly thing, but you can really ruin a homemade gift by putting the wrong kind of nut inside it! And flowers. It's only when people are getting married, or are sick, or grieving that you realise you're not entirely sure if they would like flowers, and if so, which kind, which colours?


Then again, maybe I should do something visual, since that's what my blog has been about for me. Maybe invite people to post an image on a theme or a colour that day, I've always liked colour themed images. Orange and turquoise would be good, or red and turquoise. I feel the need for colour while the weather is so chilly.


Or I could do what many people did at New Year and post something from each month of my year, maybe my 12 favourite images I blogged. I can't decide, but I definitely want to mark it. And I want to thank everyone who's commented, visited and supported me to keep at this, especially over winter when things were tough. You people are fantastic.


So, what do you think? Any opinions, any suggestions?

Fantastic Idea. I love the nuts idea, and flowers and colors. Make a six thing theme, with what kind of nut do you hate and love, what kinds of flowers do you love and detest. What kind of pets do you like and dislike? What kind of gift is worthless to you? what is the best? you know. you are on the right track, I love this idea. I would answer it for sure!!! Love the images!!! You have a lovely place here. So lovely one would never guess your real life was in a construction zone. Smiles all day and tomorrow too!! Vanessa

Anna-
I'm glad you're around too! Seeing you make your home beutiful so fast is such a spur for me to get mine rebuilt so I can have the fun decorating bit. That's the part I truly love.

Vanessa-
I'm definitely keeping it open as a main option. though I've had a further thought about skies, saving it for a proper post.

Happy pre-Blog Birthday. How about something like your "More Diwali" post that you did in October. I thought that was the most lovely looking set of images and it looked like so much fun.
Take care.
