Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!

I can't believe 2012 is here already..
It's been a crazy and exciting year
for me in 2011.

I started my blog this past year,
and opened my first booth at
Traditions Antique Mall this year.

I've been having, and continue having
a complete blast with Ruffles n Raspberries,
and couldn't of asked for better success in
my first year... There are bigger and better
things in store for myself in 2012,  and I'm
so happy each one of you is here to share
my excitement as each step in my new
journey unfolds. 

Thankyou to each one of you for your
posts, friendship and encouragement
this past year.. without it, I'm not so sure
I would have accomplised so much!

Thankyou, from the bottom of my heart..

Mr. Ruffles and I spent Christmas
in San Juan, Puerto Rico this year.

We were there for 4 days, it was
one of the best and most memorable
vacations we've ever taken together.

I wanted to share some pictures
I took while we were there...

We stayed at the La Concha hotel
and here are a couple photos of
the view from our room..

Needless to say, it was breathtaking!

Below is a shot from inside our room.
You could see the ocean from
almost where-ever you stood
in the room.

This is a shot from inside the hotel.

Just gorgeous!!

Even the lobby was amazing..

Here I am next to the
Shabby Chic Christmas trees
that were everywhere in the hotel!!

(Yep.. burnt to a crisp.. LOL)

The old Convent

Front door of the convent,
I couldn't even imagine trying
to open that door every morning!

Just inside the convent.

Iron chandy inside the convent.

(with a visitor!)

Oh what me and a paintbrush
could do to this chair!! hehehe

Sightseeing in downtown Old San Juan

Christo Chapel - built in the mid 1700's

Inside the chapel.

To the right of the inside of the chapel
was a room that was iron barred off.

I stuck my camara inside and took a shot.

Everywhere you looked
it was decorated for the
Holidays.. sooo pretty!

I claimed this building my new home.

Ya know,
since it was pink n shabby n all..
I just knew it was mine
in a former life.. LOL

The Butterfly People.
Yes, each of those butterflies
are real and pinned to a
background. Awesome!!

Insert my inner soul singing here!!

Did you know?

On Christmas night,
only a few feet from our balcony,
they shot off fireworks!

What an amazing trip!
I loved each and every beautiful day
we were there.

Mr. Ruffles sure outdid himself
with this one!

~ I just know this is going
to be one of the best New Years to come..

I just have a feeling!

I hope you all have a very Happy New Year too!!

  1. OMG Sherri, how I envy you and Mr Ruffles on that beautiful trip! I'm so happy that you've had such a beautiful start to the New Year. Thanks for stopping by today. I haven't been around much lately but I'm trying to rectify that tonight. We're heading over to the hospital to see Neil's mom but I will be listing a new giveaway tonight and have some more to list this week (actually last week). Stop back by and enter. You're the first to hear about it.

    Hugs and best wishes for a awesome 2012!!!
