Trouvais 18th c French cardHappy New Year my friends! Most of my little finds tend to have a story behind them. Here…an 18th century French Marquis scrawls his obligations from a losing hand on some playing cards. If the saying “lucky at cards, unlucky in love” is true, let’s hope he was well compensated for his losing hand!

I happily dropped all my cards…the sewing and dyeing and primping projects… as soon as the first kid rolled his way home for Christmas vacation. His sister is back at work, and he’s on his way back to school, so it’s time for me to officially greet the New Year!

Best wishes for luck in everyone’s New Year…but mostly, lots of love!

Happy 2013!
