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?)

new yr hat
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 d├ęcor 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

You have so much energy, Laurie! It's a super fun idea to change up the Christmas decor with New Year's items. I am planning to take down my tree tomorrow. Some of the vignettes will come down over the next two weeks.

And I remember you saying you just let the grandkids pretty much anything on the tree to decorate it. Fun, fun, fun!...Christine

I agree with Carlene, you have an amazing amount of energy. I'm sitting here trying to work up the motivation to start packing the Christmas things away.
Your tree looks festive!
Happy New Year!

My hubby and I are both praying for your grandson. I know each day is critical. Well...I don't know if I have ever seen someone change the decorations on the tree for New Years but I love it! You always do everything right! Can't wait to see the mantle! Happy New Year my friend!
