I warned you that my New Year’s mantel was wild and crazy.  A couple of years ago, I purchased a box of vintage New Year’s hats at an estate sale, and now they are decorating our mantel.

Even though these photos look like we’ve already had a celebration, my sweetheart and I welcomed  2013 (doesn’t that sound weird?) with a very quiet night at home.

Dear and I are enjoying a very quiet New Year's Eve here in the Northwest. Blessings in 2013 for you and yours!

I love all the vintage party and New Year things on your mantel And that you went to the trouble to transform your two Christmas trees into New Year's trees, very nice. Gives everyone something to look forward to after the Christmas letdown. And a quiet New Year's night at home sounds festive enough for me, absolutely better than facing the crowds downtown.

Happy New Year, Laurie! Blessings to you and yours.
