TWiP: Farewell 2016

Hey, everybody. Thanks for hanging out with me in my Polka Dot Cottage this year ❤❤❤. May 2017 be kind and gentle to us all! 🍾

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2016), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…



365 📷: 2016 359/366 – Christmas Eve with the family at Will and Christine’s place. [Taken at my brother’s house.]



365 📷: 2016 360/366 – A Very Clarke Christmas ☺ – Grandma, Grandpa, and all of the Clarke cousins. [Taken at my in-laws’ house.]



365 📷: 2016 361/366 – And the last Christmas party winds down. My nephew didn’t want to be in this picture, but it’s the best one I took tonight, so just maybe don’t tell him I posted it 😉 [Taken at my parents’ house.]



365 📱: 2016 362/366 – My nightstand has a few coasters and a mandala on it, and I place my tablet and phone on them overnight when they charge. Well, I got a smartwatch for Christmas, and now I’m rethinking all of the crochet pieces on my nightstand so that there’s a place for everything ☺



365 📱: 2016 363/366 – It’s official. I’ve gone overboard with the mandalas on this nightstand. Also, I don’t really like the way this new one looks. I think I’m going to find another use for it, and make something different for this spot.



365 📱: 2016 364/366 – It’s a rainy, yucky day, but I’m happy because I get to try out my new boots!



365 📷: 2016 365/366 – I spent most of today playing with a new toy, looking up on the internet how to use said toy, and flipping through some great crochet books. The evidence of this is piling up around me.

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!

  1. Can you really go overboard on mandalas?! What are you thinking for the new one? Lots of cool possibilities… 🙂
    Oh, gosh, I love your boots…way too cute!!
    Happy 2017, Lisa! Here’s to a good year 🙂

    1. “Can you really go overboard on mandalas?!” I like the way you think, Jamie 😜 I actually made a replacement the day after I rejected the original, but I didn’t photograph it. It’s from the “Crochet Therapy” book, and I’m very happy with it. If it doesn’t get its own post soon, it will at least make it into the next TWiP ☺
      Happy 2017 to you too! XO

      1. I can’t wait to see it! 🙂

  2. God bless you and your family in the new year. I look forward to the journey and enjoying your blog.

    1. Thank you, Chloe, and the same to you! Thanks for reading and participating 💟
