New Years Day Glitz

 Happy New Years to everyone out there in Blogland.I had this table designed for New Years Day thought I would do a very elegant over the top Glitzy table and fabulous dinner. only the table was a reality. I ended up flying to N Ca for a job interview instead.Life has really hit me hard this past year.I am not trying to be a Debbie Downer but lets just say this has been probably the worst year of my life.
 The year started off  wrongly when I opted for a second mastectomy and created more chronic pain.Moved into my first and own apartment became divorced,traded jobs for what I thought was the dream position. this is going to be my last blog for a long time. I lost my job on Dec 1 and everything else with it,my benefits,which I  need for my cancer,my source of income and now my home. I am moving to become a caregiver to a ninety seven year old man in Northern Ca and hoping and praying it works out for the remaining amount of time he has left. As I sit among my packed apartment waiting for a week from today when I drive away from my first own place I ask for prayers and guidance that 2015 is a better year for all of us. So please just enjoy the pics and hope that once I can get back on my feet and all my stuff out of storage and find a real job that I will be able to continue with my blog that I have found so much intense Joy with this year.So Happy New Years to all of you with great love Susie































































If anyone  had told me I would lose my job, benefits  be homeless scared and terrified and have to move 800 miles all in the space of three weeks I would have said NO WAY lets rethink this year but sadly this is where I am at God bless all of you.

  3. I really feel sad for all your troubles and problems. I never thought that you'd be going through all this. I sincerely hope that your life will turn for the best, that your life, the way you knew it, can go back -to a degree. I wish you good things, good feelings and yes, good times. I wish you good health, and yes, a good job. I know changes can be so scary, I've been through changes like that myself. But it can be done, I did it, and so can you. Have faith, and hope. Bertha.

  4. Oh Susie, Life takes us on strange journeys. I hope your journey takes you on a path to great adventures full of wonder and joy. You have already had your kick in the pants, you have paid your dues now it is time to move on and find out what is around the next corner. I wish the very best for you and will be looking forward to hearing about your adventures....Hugs, Candy

  6. I am going to start off by saying that you my dear lady have had a incredibly rough year. Going thru a divorce alone, is one of the most difficult things a woman can go thru. (been there too) but you made it through...that proves you are an incredibly strong and determined woman. This year will hold a lot of changes for you that I hope will open up many possibilities, smiles and wonderful memories. We are all here for you, so do not be afraid to type it, or shout it out that you need some support, some love or even a joke :-) I got your back sister!!

    You did a beautiful table, keep your chin up :-)

    1. Oh Christine I just want to reach across the pages and hug you for comforting me so. this is the first time I have been able to link up and didn't know I had responses that needed answering. this move has been the worst thing I have ever done but don't know how to fix it or correct it. I had no other options and can't do my tables which bought so much joy to my life everything I own is in storage. I am tired of being strong and really just want to be a marshmallow. again thank you for your sweet kindness you warmed my heart.Susie

  10. Although you have gone thru such hardship this past 2014, you have the spirit to share such a stunning table with so much beauty and elegance and strength... and I do believe you have that kind of soul my friend; strong and firm!
    My goodness sweet lady, you had it rough all around, but I just feel this one is going to be a very much smooth year for you.
    I will be praying for you very often, I promise, God is good and have fate.
    I'm sorry I haven't come before, we had a so, so end of the year too.
    Big warm hugs sweetie,
    FABBY

  11. First thank you so much to stop by to leave your sweet comment for my New Years table. I read your side of your story what is happening with you right now. God is great. Some time he tests us in many ways. Everything is going to fall in place soon and you are going to see many wonderful things in 2015. My prayers are with you. Love and hugs Sujatha:)

  12. Oh Susie, I am so sorry to hear of your awful year. And I thought I had a lousy year. I keep saying 2015 has got to be better and I'm sure you're feeling the same. It's so hard to continue to be optimistic and strong when life is hitting you so hard. Please hang in there.

    I know one of the other commenters said it, but I will reiterate it. We're here for you. As much as we can be across the miles. But us bloggers have an amazing community and don't forget it.

    I'm praying for you that day by day things start to fall into a better pattern and your new path starts to take shape. I still haven't figured mine out so I don't say those words lightly.

    Your table was gorgeous! So beautiful and twinkling and full of spirit. Don't let that spirit get zapped. As corny as it sounds, even though I don't have the time to do much in the way of tablescaping these days, I often get myself to sleep at night thinking of tablescapes - what I'd do and how I'd do it. There are no right or wrong answers and it helps my mind stop the loop of worrying.

    Good luck and do stay in touch!

    - Alma, The Tablescaper
