Those of you who have followed my blog posts for long enough know that after Christmas, I remove all of the Christmas ornaments from our two Christmas trees (which are about to shrivel up and turn brown by now.  Uh oh, was I supposed to water those things?)

As you can see, I replace them with New Year’s hats, beads, leis, and streamers.
I’ve always said that I love to decorate for New Year’s, because I think New Year’s décor can be wild and crazy, and that’s kind of the way my decor rolls on a regular basis.

Monday, I’ll be posting the trees with the New Year’s mantel, so be sure to check in.  You don’t want to miss the wild and crazy mantel! 

HAPPY 2013
Have you seen the button on my sidebar about snowflakes for students returning to Sandy Hook School?  My grandchildren and I will be making some.  They need to be sent in time for the students return to school on the 12th of January.  If you’d like to participate, please visit Maryann at Domestically Speaking for the information.
I am linking to The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. 
Some of you have asked about our grandson.  Our little Cooper is still struggling, so your continued prayers for him are so appreciated.  laurie

(I'm afraid I let the holidays overwhelm me, and I have had some trouble getting back to my blog. I'm so sorry I haven't visited all of my favorite blogs. If I'd known I was going to take a little break, I would have let you know, but since the break was accidental, I couldn't notify you. Every night, I thought I would be able to visit blogs tomorrow, but the next night came, and I still had not been able to visit blogs. I'll be back "in the groove" soon and will come catch up on your blog postings. Thank you for understanding.)

Welcome to our wild and crazy New Year's celebration!

I always get my Christmas decor put up before New Year's Eve. Since we have a real tree, after I take off the ornaments, my husband and son get the tree out of the house. One year, 20 or so years ago, due to a work situation, my husband was unable to get the tree out before New Years, so I decorated the tree for New Years. It has now become a tradition to have at least one New Year's tree. My grandchildren love decorating the NY tree, because all you do is throw as much "stuff" on the tree as you can! New Year's decor can be tacky and crazy, because that's what New Years is all about. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!
