Ring-ing in the New Year!

Happy New Year!

I want to thank all followers who come by and visit the Humble Bungalow Blog.
You are truly fabulous support for my hobby and I appreciate your comments enormously...
they encourage me to improve and reinvent.

The New Year is like a fresh canvas just waiting for some paint...
I have no idea what colour it will be or how it will turn out in the end...
it will just be....
unfolding slowly as the days continue their passage into the future.

Celebrating new beginnings as I ring in the New Year!

and designed

a guilty pleasure...

Pepper makes a post Xmas appearance...

pawsitively precocious
and getting into mischief constantly now

Wishing you health, happiness and prosperity for the year to come.

Cheers from The Hostess


  1. Hostess,

    I have so enjoyed reading your blog and "getting to know you" in this blog world. It's fun to see pictures of that darling Pepper and find out what's afoot at the Humble Bungalow.

    Your ring is so classic and beautiful!

    Enjoy your Perrier-Jouet and have a...

    Happy New Year!


  2. Happy New Year to you, Hostess! Your "hobby" is more like a craft in the most technical way! You paint with words and have introduced me to new venues. I thank you for that!

    I look forward to the future - whatEVER color it comes in. I expect to find quality here and am never disappointed.

  3. Beautiful bling. We will be having some bubbles from our local winery - Beaufort.
    All the best in 2011 to you and yours. Peg

  4. Happy New Year, hostess and family.

    What a beautiful ring. I love that sense of the past with the heirloom diamonds being brought into the present with a new setting. The memories!

    Lots of love
