Happy Holidays!
This is my last post for a few days. I'm looking forward to taking a well deserved break. It's been a simply amazing year here at the studio - especially the last 2 months. Cartolina will take on a whole new life in 2010 and I'm looking forward to sharing all the exciting news with you over the next couple of weeks. Preparing posts for Cafe Cartolina has become my favourite part of the day and every morning I look forward to reading your comments. I'm going to have lots more time on my hands in the New Year and I promise to update the labels list and some of the permanent image links we have on the side bars - just a little bit of housekeeping to keep the Cafe fresh! Thanks for visiting everyday and for commenting. Happy Holidays! {I'll be back here on the 30th!}

These images are from the amazing Katrin Cargill - enjoy . . . .




I'd love to know what plans you all have for the holidays. Why don't you leave me a comment - I'd love to know!

Seeing what goodies you have for us each day on the blog has become one of favorite times of day - so inspiring and delightful. I send wishes for Happy Holidays and a most happy and healthy New Year to you and yours.xoxo

Thanks everyone - so glad you enjoy the daily inspiration! I can honestly say that my posts are never planned. I have no idea what I am going to blog from one day to the next. It's an impulsive thing for me - if it catches my eye then it will most likely make it to the Cafe about an hour later!
Thanks for your comments - hope you all have a wonderful Friday!

Dear Fiona, wishing you a very merry christmas and a happy new year! I say it again; I absolutely love your blog!

I will spend the holidays with my husbands family at their home in the countryside. After enjoying a sauna, sit and watch the stars in the sky, the ice-lanterns glow in the dark, feel the warm by a fire, be gathered by my loved ones and drink glögg (a traditional spiced drink) I will send you a warm thought and wish you a very happy christmas.

Hi Octane Jewelry said...

Man I am going to have to go and read old posts to get my CC fill.
We are headed to the NW. Can't wait, I am sure I will have lots of new inspirations.
Happy Holidays.

Beautiful photo choices, as always. We took an early holiday for a short trip to Disneyland! Next week is brunch on Christmas day with the in-laws...and my husband's aunt is coming from South Carolina--she's so much fun! Merry Christmas, Fiona and family!! :)

Wishing all the best for the festive season - I've really enjoyed reading the beautiful Cafe Cartolina posts on a regular basis.

We're off to the beach camping after Christmas - I'm looking to some lovely balmy, lazy days. Lee :)

Happy Holidays Fiona and enjoy your break. Looking forward to 2010

I've always wanted to wallpaper something, but am too timid to do a wall in my home ( I think my boyfriend wouldn't be too happy either!). I never thought to line the inside of a closet or wardrobe. Great inspiration- thanks and have a great holiday break.
