2012 Round-Up

I really liked Carolyn's 2012 photo review so I'm copying her idea. I took one photo from each month - not necessarily a photo of me - but one that sums up the month nicely. :)

January 2012: a close-up on my Secretary Blouse


February: ribbon detail on the hem of a shirt


March: the massive fail that is my Lotus Cami and my new 2012 haircut


April: some local sight-seeing at Sully-sur-Loire


May: this photo epitomizes my new use of scarves as accessories; at the Joan of Arc festival


June: a bolero (and my failed Lotus Cami again, that apparently I only put on for photo purposes)


July: this represents our 2012 summer weather; here I am in my new button-down shirt at Chambord


August: swans at Cheverny


September: my friend Yoon visited; here she is at Marie Antoinette's Hamlet in Versailles


October: T's second Negroni (which he has yet to wear!) with a beautiful fall background


November: the unending project that is my Burda jacket; cuff detail


December: my mom at the Strasbourg Christmas Market


I have a couple days before I go back to work, and I'm trying to use them to craft a bit. So far it's knitting and embroidery...

  1. This is such a cool post Donna, I really like the way you've done this! I hope you enjoy your days off, crafting, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you make. And guess what! I finally found and purchased a pattern for my wool that I bought with you on our day out. Only six months later ;) whoo hooo!
    And thank you so much for the mention :)

    1. Thanks, you inspired me! I can't wait to see what you do with the wool. I started a scarf w/ mine but I've put it aside to work on other projects for the time being. :)
