Mosaic Monday #21 Remembering 2014

Looking back over 2014 will be heavy on photos, light on words.
Several tea tables shared at 'Tea with Friends'.
Meeting tea friends for the first time.
Giveaway wins and tea gifts.
Garden tour of Ireland.
Shared the seasons of my hydrangea 'Limelight'.
A colour palette of the fabulous begonia 'Pegasus', a trial plant from Proven Winners.
Twin granddaughters graduated from high school and started university this year. Friend Ruth turned 94.
Joined a lovely group of women on FB and exchanged autumn and Christmas cards. Above are a few of my handmade creations.
The newspaper that carried my weekly gardening column for 13 years was sold and shut down. After much thought, I retired my column from publication and on this blog.
Lastly, I took over Mosaic Monday from Mary at Little Red House in August.
Thank you to the regular participants that followed the party over to Lavender Cottage, the new people that have joined the fun...and to those of you contemplating creating mosaics and joining us!
The above button is on the sidebar and links directly to my MM label/category, feel free to add it to your blog.
Best wishes for a happy, healthy 2015.

  2. Happy New Year Judith. I am so very happy that you were able to take on the reins and continue with Mosaic Monday. It is such a fun experience every week. I know that I am often late for visits, but I always do catch up. Your shares are very pretty and I especially enjoyed the Begonia and your colour palette, very lovely shades. Have a wonderful New Year and week~

  7. Happy New Year Judith! Just wanted to say hello from Greece where we came on very short notice to chase -- and finally -- catch that daydream of ours! We've been in 'the stone house on the hill' since mid-December and while it is wonderful, it is pretty limited internet so blogging has been limited to occasionally and mosaics have been near impossible. I will return to the link up after we get back to internet land, but wanted to take a minute (while connected) to say hello and send holiday wishes!

  18. Hi Judith,
    I love your gorgeous Mosaics this week and I did manage to copy your button to my sidebar. I am still learning but hopefully I will learn to do more complicated mosaics with time. It is such an accomplishment what you have done this year! That is especially wonderful that you managed to meet some blogging friends! Happy New Year Dear Judith! Karen

  33. Every picture and every mosaic is perfect, as always, but you had me at the Lillie's of the Velley. My favorite flower and one I sadly never see nowadays. Too hot here in Florida. So thank you for the sweet memories. Apologies for not reading the directions and therefore not posting a year-end. (I had the same kind of problem way back in the early part of the last century as a school girl. ). Happy New Year and thank you for all.

  34. You have had a full year, Judith. I have enjoyed so much your beautiful Tuesday Teas with the beautiful tea cups, flowers linens, and delicious foods. Your garden is also lovely and the flowers are prizes. I am glad that I began participating in Mosaic Monday because I have made some new friends, but also I enjoy the range of technical tricks that other bloggers challenge me to try. I look forward to another exciting year. Happy New Year, Judith.

  35. I enjoy year in review posts, and yours is nicely done with great photos. I was pleased to see the blogging friends you met. :) It was great meeting you and your wonderful hubby. 2014 goes down as a good year in my book.
    Blessings and hugs, Beth

  36. What a great idea to end the year with mosaics of all the events and pleasures of the past year. Your trip to Ireland was certainly a highlight, but many other bright spots as well. I'm looking forward to sharing tea with you next year Judith! Blessings to you, Deborah

  42. Lovely photos! The lily of the valley always remind me of my grandma who would have a small vaseful of them on her table in the springtime. I have some of the descendants growing in my garden (well, actually under the snow right now). That looks like such a sweet little Diana porcelain doll? Is that what it is? So pretty! I hope you have a wonderful 2015, Judith.
