A nice way to start the New Year

So here we are back in Winston Salem, North Carolina.  This morning when I woke up the song "Nothing Could Be Finer" was in my head.

So, here's Dean singing it for you.

esting is something I am quite familiar with, after moving so many times over the years.

I love to keep journals of my adventures, so why not memorize this chapter in a new blog on Tumbler?  I am calling it Nesting in North Carolina, and I'll post photos of my finds to share with you.  Of course I will always post here on A Scrapbook of Inspiration.

I am in the middle of learning how to decorate a small apartment.  I am going to start taking more Instagram photos and posting them on my Instagrams.

Here's an instagram photo I took this morning of my art room.

As long as my art room is cozy, I'm happy.

Wishing you a beautiful day.

The art room looks fantastic, I love being in mine and have spend all day here. It is bitterly cold out here in Southern Ontario, -23C. Brrr!! Have a wonderful day. Jen

My daddy always played Dean Martin's records, and like him, I have always loved him.

People used to say my daddy and Dean Martin looked quite similar.

You are right, nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina! Welcome back. Enjoy your nesting Karen.

It takes a grateful heart to accept these life changes. The weather has got to be finer in Carolina, too! Have fun with your new blog!

I just started Instagramming, I'm a little late to the game, and I don't use it much yet but now I can follow you there:>) I'm looking forward to seeing your new home.

That looks like the perfect art corner, Karen!

Happy New Year, my friend.

Oh, Dean, Dean, Dean, his voice is like butter. You KNOW I played it all the way through.
A cozy creative corner is most comfortable to me too, Karen. Enjoy every bit of your new beautiful home.
I haven't tried out Instagram yet, but I am looking for new alternatives to Pinterest this year...ones with "real" photos. I will check it out. Off to see your new blog.
Happy New Year!!
