2 more days left.....

{image from here}


First of all, merci beaucoup for telling me about all your plans for 2010, sounds like we are going to be a very busy bunch.

I cannot believe that we only have 2 more days until 2010. Mind you it make take me that long deciding what to wear.

We together with some lovely friends, are seeing the new year in at a new restaurant that has recently opened in the village, the food is great there and the decor very chic - think chocolatey walls with menus on blackboards and a mixture of modern leather and wicker chairs with a huge open fireplace as the main feature of the room....deliciously chic but more importantly at this time of the year -lovely and warm.

It maybe a little bit busy to take photos tomorrow night but I will return on a quieter day to get some photos with my new camera that Santa kindly gave me.

The mayor is putting on a wee party and will be offering all a crepe and free aperitif. The old chateau will be lit with lasers and this will be the place where most of the locals see the new year in.....cannot wait, it should be a fabulous and very fun night.

I have been lucky enough to spend new years eve in some fabulous cities; Sydney (the atmosphere is electric), London (many of which were unfortunately wet including 1999), Dubai, Istanbul, Mumbai, Santiago and so the list goes on.

This year I am looking forward to a more sedate affair without the crowds and bright city lights.This may have something to do with the fact that I am now in my 40's and prefer candle light to neon.

Today I am loving this photo that I found in Canadian house and home magazine.

I adore the mix of the dark table with the light coloured louis style chairs - fabulous. And that chandelier is fabulous.....

Work beckons so I had better go, wishing you all a very fabulous new years eve, where ever you maybe. I will be back on Saturday where we will be discussing planned projects for 2010 as part of this weeks Pink Saturday post.

JE VOUS SOUHAITE DE JOYEUSES FÊTES DE FIN D'ANNÉE
