2013... Year of The Snake !

update !
this is my second try at posting this blog
blogger keeps deleting the photos so we shall see if it works this time !

Goodbye Dragon enter the Snake !

In Japan everyone and I mean everyone sends New Year wishes out in the form of a postcard.
This is my very late postcard that will be mailed out on Tuesday. Very very late !

The back of the postcard. I put some years in, are you a Snake ?

Last years Ozouni : Mochi soup for the New Year,
made by talented daughter.

One of my New Year Day cards complete with explanation of all the lucky symbols.

Since it is New Years Eve. . .

The Square Ones want to remind you of what happens when you have too much fun
with too many bubbles.

Here is your pretty to start the week of the New Year

Moon rise over Thimble Peak.
This was taken through my studio window so you can see some reflection
but I like the double moon.

Happy New Year !
Be safe, warm and may we all be hopeful.

cheers,  parsnip
music. . . Viva la Vida,  Coldplay

  2. Hey guys! Happy New Year back! I, Shelly, am a snake. Born in 1965.

    Enjoyed your post. The Square Ones looked totally tuckered out.

    Hugs and chocolate,

    1. Your Small Fur Ones, looked very festive in their Holiday photos.

  3. I'm a Snake, too--but I sure don't fit the Snake profile.

    Love your photos, Gayle--especially the Square Ones!

    1. I seem to fit the Boar profile but maybe your very special snake leader !
      At lest I think you are.

      Happy News Years.
