Happy New Year 2022
Happy New Year 2022! This is going to be such an incredible year and I have a lot of plans and exciting news to share with you this year.
But first, before I write anything on this blog post, I wanted to say thank you. You have all been here, day after day, reading my blog, leaving wonderful comments, and encouraging me always. I believe that I have the best job in the world and I hope you know that I couldn’t do this without all of you. Thank you so much. I wish all of you a very Happy New Year 2022!
Let’s Start the Year Off Right
Now that we are all celebrating a Happy New Year, I am starting the year with new goals and a fresh start.
Making resolutions is a New Year’s tradition. Losing weight, exercising more, getting organized, and saving money are always at the top of the list of eyeryone’s resolutions.
Last year was a crazy one for me. I worked really hard. I am a hard worker in general, but last year, I took on some huge projects, which was kind of like having two full-time jobs. You will find out more about those projects later. So this year, I am focused on simplifying things, getting organized, and creating some calm in my life.
So, as 2022 begins, one of my resolutions is to make my home, and my life more comfortable and organized. I’m not going to lie, the organizing is going to take some time. Making my home more comfortable will be a lot more fun!
Now that my Christmas decor is packed away, I can think clearly about what to do next.
One of the ways to create comfort in your home is to update your home with a new winter color palette. A new winter color palette sets the tone for your entire home. And it makes it pretty!
Want to join me?
Don’t panic. I am not asking you to redo your home, or hire a decorator or a contractor or embark on a huge project.
The goal is a simple shift by changing the accent colors in your home.
So how do you pick a color palette that works best for you?
Join me tomorrow on the blog for Sunday Morning Coffee and I will share exactly how to do this!
New this Year – A Monthly Giveaway
January is a great time to start fresh and I am starting something new this month. I will be holding a monthly giveaway on my Instagram each month! And the giveaway items are going to be amazing gifts!
Two lucky readers/followers will win the giveaway each month.
January 2022 Giveaway
This month, I am giving away two KitchenAid stand mixers. My KitchenAid mixer is one of my most used and favorite tools that I have in my kitchen. So I thought, I will kick this monthly giveaway off with something that I love, right?
Here is all you need to do.
Like each of my Instagram posts for the month of January. Easy, peasy, right?
At the end of the month, two readers/followers will be chosen by random selection. It’s that easy!
In case you weren’t sure if I really loved my KitchenAid mixer, look closely at the photo below.
Do you see what I see? Hehe.
I really do love my KitchenAid(s).

Happy New Year to you, and thank you for all the lovely pictures of your home, decorating ideas and recipes. I noticed the work bowl of your stand mixer, had to look again, as am seeing flowers possibly engraved on the outside of the bowl, just beautiful, and it has a handle too. Am sure is very special bowl for that mixer, just have never seen bowl that was not metal. Did it come specifically with that mixer or available somewhere by itself. It was lovely and know you must so enjoy using it. Thank you for letting us see it. I have not been to a real wonderful store in two years or more, first open heart surgery then Covid, I did not have it, just stayed home, forever. Don’t see that many really nice things online anymore, not like in the stores. And losing sone stores because of the virus and so limited on small Staten Island. Marianne
Happy New Year Leslie! Thank you for all the great ideas and beautiful displays. I look forward to seeing what you do next!!
Happy 2022! Love following you.
Happy New Year! I have enjoyed all of your projects. They have inspired me to do several projects of my own. Free motion quilting has become one of my favorite things to do.
I think a fun give away would be pillow inserts and covers.
Thanks for being you!
Cheers to 2022!
Happy New Year! Here’s to a year of health and happiness! 🥂😂 I would love to see your beautiful pillow covers as a giveaway! Even though I’ve made quite a few myself and coasters to match, I think any of us would love to have one of yours in our collection!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, TO YOU. as much as I would love to enter the give a way, I do not have instagram, facebook or twitter, but GOOD LUCK to whoever wins. I do love all your posts, and your home is Beautiful.
Happy New Year!
I love everything you do and show us.
I hope to move soon and use more of your ideas.
Your red mixer was a surprise. I thought it would be pink. 😊
You keep me happy and motivated.
Happy New Year Leslie!
Happy New Year, Leslie! I’m so looking forward to another year of your amazing ideas and inspiration! You’re my fave! XO
Happy New Year!! Would love for you to share more flea market finds & want you do with them. Things to look for @ Antique shops & flea market.
Thank you Leslie for sharing so many great ideas throughout the year. I’ve learned from you and carried some of your ideas over in my home. Excited about 2022!
Wow – I guess I’ve never seen that side of your house before – very fun! I bet being on a corner works well for all the film companies too! 🙂 Thanks so much for another wonderful year of projects and ideas. I totally understand the two full time job deal, and I hope you get it down to one and have a lovely calm organized life forever after! 🙂 Happy New Year and I’m crossing my fingers that 2022 is the year we get to actually meet in person!
I continue to enjoy each and every posts that you share with us. Your pictures are very descriptive and representative of a beautiful home. Thank you for sharing your creativity through this blog. It’s a pleasure to be a guest in your home decorating world.
The one item I do not have that I would love is a Dutch Oven. I’ve admired Le Creuset Dutch Ovens for years, but I’ve yet to purchase one. This is partly due to the price and whether I’d use it enough to warrant/justify spending that money. Now, if I received one as a gift – that’s a different story😅! (P.S. I hope you are well. I remember you mentioned you were going for a procedure, but I haven’t seen an update. Please let us know, and if you already did, sorry I missed it.)
I always loved the way ur mixer stood out in red, esp at Xmas time! Looking fward to ur new ideas for the coming year – & really don’t know how u get the energy!❤️
Happy new year to you too Leslie! I hope you will remember my book, “Our Wedding Planner” which might be a good time for a give away as engagement rings went out over the Christmas holidays as well as New Years while families were all together. The book is on Amazon and a perfect engagement gift. Your posts are always so engaging and wishing you the best of everything for the coming year.
What a wonderful year it has been! I believe I started following you on Instagram originally just over a year ago. Boy, has it been fun.. I have loved everything you have shared and have completed several projects and have more planned to finish. You are truly an inspiration to me! I hope you and your family have a HAPPY NEW YEAR for 2022.
Happy New Year! Thanks for all the inspiration over the year! That bowl on the mixer is Beautiful! Looking forward to all the fun in 2022!
Happy New Year! Looking forward to all the beautiful projects you will be sharing in 2022.
I especially love the transom above the doorway in the kitchen. What a delight to cook and share a meal in that kitchen. Your boys are adorable and may I add you have impeccable taste.
MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY 2022 NEW YEAR TO YOU LESLIE. WISHING YOU & YOUR
FAMILY THE VERY BEST IN THIS YEAR TO COME. LOVE YOUR KITCHEN AND ALSO LOVE ALL
THE BEAUTIFUL DISPLAYS YOU DO WITH THE COLOR GREEN. LOOKING SO FORWARD TO
