    Christmas Carousel Countdown {13 days}

     

    Remembering last year’s happy Christmas, hiking the Milford Track, New Zealand.

    remind me of hiking the pass on the Milford Track.

    A happy holiday, full of laughter and magnificent scenery with my friend Deb!

    Christmas Carousel Countdown {15 days}

     

    A blushing christmas with dusty pinks,

    makes my heart sing softly.

    The soft blushing color palette of dusty pink looks divine with the colours of

    pale aqua, beige/nude, crisp white, and, of course, dove gray.
