La Mairie in Camiers, France ~ Dec. 2007

This photo was taken in Camiers, France where, just before Christmas, "mom & dad" spent a lovely week in Dec. 2007. This is the town hall of the village (town hall = "la mairie" in french , "gemeentehuis" in dutch).

Here's wishing you and yours a wonderful new year!

Gelukkig Nieuwjaar! Happy New Year!


Proost! ( cheers!),

Hi Judy and Sacha,
I wish you both and your family a very Happy New Year - Gelukkig Nieuwjaar!!!

Judy, your Christmas card is fabulous, I hope you'll post the entire piece when it's finished, can't wait to see it!

And Sacha, since you appear to be a great "help" in the kitchen (i.e. taste-testing the butter for the cookies...) did you help "Mom" make oliebollen on New Year's Eve? :)

Mineke.

Thanks Mineke! I hope to finish that piece, and some others, this year. About time I did! LOL

Oh yes, de Oliebollen verplicht! ... well this year they were bakery bought (and they were lekker!) Last year, Sacha helped eat them ... and I did fry them!! See this post from Jan.,2007 "The Obligatory New Year's Post":

Sacha is not so keen on oliebollen, but her dear departed brother, Finn, loved them. Couldn't keep Finn away from them! Can't keep my Dutchman away from them either...LOL

Gelukkig Nieuwjaar! :o)

Een goed 2008 Judith !!

Met veel nieuwe mooie tekeningen en weblog postjes, .....

Trouwens, je was bijna (weer) "getagged" maar omdat het onderhand wel wat veel word, heb ik besloten alleen maar 5 kunstenaars te noemen die ik bewonder, ... jij bent er één van.

Groetjes,
René

Nee, toch?! Dat meen je niet!! Bedankt René... I don't think I'm worthy, but thanks all the same * embarassed a little*

We'll see what 2008 brings to this blog. *eek*

groetjes,
Judy
