Happy New Year! Focusing on the positive and counting my blessings seem the order of the day.
As I reflect on the events that have happened with friends, family and our own household...I am looking forward to a fresh start with 2013. It is the year of the snake in the Chinese charts - my birth year is the year of the snake. It is my year!
I have never been fond of the snake, personally. My brother-in-law has one as a pet - I find it difficult to think of a snake as a pet. I am more the furry, wagging tail sort of pet owner. My lack of love didn't improve after staying with them for a weekend and finding out after the fact, that the snake had actually escaped its tank and was slithering throughout the house during our visit...
But I have to admit their skins make great furniture inspiration...check out this snakeskin-inspired velvet ottoman!
