Panoply 2016: It's a Wrap!

I started this collage photo summary format in 2014 as a way to capture my year in one fell swoop. It's been an even better year than the one prior, and putting these collages together by subject matters that matter to me are my way of remembering the best of 2016. My life is a true panoply, and I'm thankful for it.

There are no lengthy descriptions, but there are links back under each photo collage header (in the captions). If you're so inclined to read, you can click on the captions, each comma separating different posts on that header. The one marked in bold under each header was my most viewed of that subject. You can also select a label, main menu header, or type the subject into the search block just above my photo on the right sidebar (e.g., garden, tablescape, etc), and related posts will come up. Feel free to dig in. Enjoy!

Once again, I've enjoyed meeting so many new friends throughout the year, and look forward to more still in 2017. I've also savored growing the friendships of a few of those whom I 'met' in years before. Thank you to all my loyal readers, and for those who may be new, I hope you'll continue to visit. I love your comments and hope that you'll find my style approachable and welcoming.
Cheers to the New Year!
Best,
Rita C. at Panoply
NOTE:  I created this post, as I said, to organize my year of blogging. It's also the last step I take before ordering my annual "yearbook" from Blog2Print (no sponsorship or affiliation). They currently have a coupon code of ANNUAL which ends Thursday, 1/5/17, for 30% off a book format of your blog posts. If interested, I wrote about the process last year, here, with some tips on how to compile your own book. If you sign up for Blog2Print's email, you will receive subsequent coupons, as I'm sure there will be more to come. This one is a good deal, and it's pretty easy to do, so I wanted to pass it along to my readers.
