Another Year Has Come and Gone

I've been blogging since September, and you have been with me as I have shared...

my blackberries I pick all summer...

and quilts I make in the winter.

I've told you how I love to write and my longing to be published.

You've visited Jackson County's miniature Stone Mountain...

and gazed at our elegant visitor down by the creek.

I've shown you my arrowheads...

and the Mail Pouch Tobacco Barns along the road.

And I took you to Bridge Day so you could gaze off the bridge and dream of gliding down to the river below.

I've shared my love of collecting...

and we've crafted many things.

We've shared a recipe or two.

But, best of all, I've become friends with all of you!

Happy New Year.

  7. Janet,

    Great post. Your blog is definitely a daily stop for me... your down home folksiness keeps me grounded.

    Plus, I got that great Chocolate Cake recipe from here, and I get to marvel at all yuor crafts that I know I can't replicate!

    You are a treasure to us all. Keep up the great work, and most of all, keep writing in the blackberry patch!

    Happy New Year to you!!

  9. Janet,
    I am enjoying your blog and look forward to the many posts that the new year will bring.

    I love the picture of the barn. My son would just die for those arrowheads. Great collection.

  10. Janet,
    I am real new to blogging and am viewing some sites to get ideas for mine. I love yours. I live in Florida now, but I was born in southern West Virginia and go back to viist each year. Your site makes me homesick. I loved the pictures about the mistletoe. I explained to my grandchildren how it was harvested. They were amazed. Annie :)

  11. What a lovely review!!!!! Once, we went to VA to see Navy-son in Norfolk, and on the way home went from one tip of VA to the other. My teen sons declared that was the BIGGEST LONGEST STATE EVER!!! (and we're from TX:)

    I agree with you Virginia is beautiful:)
    Happy 2009 to you and your family!!!!

  12. Thank you for you concern for my Mom. Love your photos in your post.
    Looking forward to a great New Year for all of us.

  13. A very neat way to look back through the year! I'm glad we've met up through our blogs!
