You might have noticed that I’ve cut way down on blogging this year. After more than 2,400 posts, and ten (!) years of blogging almost full time – for years, I wrote five times a week – I have found that it is hard to find the time to devote to blogging. I love the community of it, the friends that I’ve made and the experiences I’ve had. But the thought that I had to find a topic, gather images, do the research and then the writing, just got too overwhelming and so I made the decision to slow down. In 2017, I am going to aim to write once a week, and I hope that you will still follow along.
I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite posts of the past year, most of which were crowd faves, too!
First up, the new dog. After losing Connor about 14 months earlier, I found adorable little Figue, a Yorkie mixed with some other things, possibly including poodle. She is so completely and totally different from Connor as to be an entirely new species! She is silly and funny, and fast as lightning. She adores riding in the car, sticking her head out the window, and barking like mad when I stop!
In September, my friends at Halcyon House Antiques hosted a pop-up shop for me, which was loads of fun.
I am so lucky to have friends with an amazing cutting garden, and every other weekend during the summer, I get a bucket full of flowers. I have such fun arranging them in the myriad vessels in my collection, regardless of whether vase it the original purpose or not!
I want to personally thank you for reading Pigtown*Design, and hope that you enjoy it. I always love to read comments and try to respond to each one. Thanks!
