Goodbye 2011!

2011. I will not be sad to see you go. You have not been a nice year with world changing disasters and our own personal family losses.

It's time to unburden and tell you that I despised you most of all because Voyt, my dear man, has no
t only suffered because of his leg infection & consequences but has been rediagnosed with Liver Cancer (after being cancer-free for 4 years). It's been really hard to accept but he has been fighting back.

Of course it hasn't all been bad. I've made some wonderful friends this year through my blog and Facebook page and have met and been inspired by many of you.

We have increased the brand awareness for Thea & Sami and have enjoyed some lovely media coverage. We are proud to stock our products in beautiful shops around Australia and will continue to grow while making it all locally.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR dear friends! I can't wait for 2012.

PS.. My great Vintage Sale (see previous post) will begin on eBay tonight at 6.00 pm AEDST and will run for 1 week. Will let you know link once it's up and running.

I'm with you on being only to happy to give 2011 the flick!

As for the year to come - may the road be smoother and the days gentler.

I'm so sorry to learn of Voyt's plight and hope that this time next year that is a household of healthy, happy people sitting around your dining table sharing with great joy and contentment all the wonderful gifts that 2012 has shared.

Huge hug!
