Happy New Year 2010!

bowl of clams for new years dinner

I went down to the beach at sunset thinking I would be the only soul braving the 20 degrees temps. The parking lot was full. As I got out onto the beach I noticed small groups of clammers dotting the surf. Equipped with shovels, buckets, and full winter gear these clammers didn’t even seem phased. One family was digging surf clams for a New Year’s eve clam chowder. How freakin’ adorable and cool is that?

I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who has ever commented, e-mailed, and or read my blog. Your support means the world to me and frankly is the only reason I keep going. To all my blogging friends who to continue to inspire me everyday. I’m so glad that somebody created this crazy blog world so we could all become friends. Here’s to health, happiness, and success in the New Year!

  1. Katy come back!

    New to your blog, I enjoyed my holidays by looking at your archives. You’re so inspiring.

    In one of your posts you described your style as “English Bohemian”. Another source of inspiration might be some of those delightful movies in the last decade based on Jane Austen novels. Gorgious English interious with beautiful colours and design. “Sense and Sensibility” starring Kate Winslet makes use of wonderful jewel colours. Also the BBC production of Pride and Predudice staring Colin Firth also provides a beautiful backdrop for gardens and interiors. Cheers

  4. Oh that’s funny Jo. I must have been thinking about the clams and said “sole” instead of “soul”. Fixed now. Thanks for the head’s up.

  9. Thank you for sharing the progress of your home renovation.
    I love it! Your blog is one of my favorites. I love the old

    renovate one too. Happy New Year!

  12. Your blog is one of my all-time favorites. I really admire so much about you–your love of cooking and hand-made things–and your love of old houses and history. I’m renovating a Victorian in Jersey City right now and I KNOW how frustrating it is to have all these projects in motion with nothing finished or pretty. I just want to paint and shop and decorate but instead I get to take down wallpaper and skimcoat etc…I hope you have a great New Year in beautiful Marblehead!!!
