What do you do to celebrate New Year's?



It's almost that time....New Year's!!! I've started taking down a few of my decorations, how about you?
We always leave our tree and nativity up through the Epiphany, and my snowman mantle will stay put for awhile since it's so Winter oriented. I usually leave them out until Valentine's Day and try to combine some valentines in with the snowmen :).
Hopefully you all had a wonderful Christmas...ours was fabulous, time spent with extended family and time just on our own on Christmas day, playing with our new toys, reading new books, watching movies, eating....all the good stuff!
I took down all our Christmas cards we received and decided to display all my vintage New Year's postcards....I really dislike hiding them in a drawer somewhere, they're just too pretty!
Dd and I hit Target this a.m. to see what was going on, they have lots of Christmas items left, all at 50% off. We didn't buy much at all because we really don't need anything.
This will be a relaxing week with dd still on vacation...love this time with her! Hope you're all doing well and have a great New Year!

Gail,
I look forward to coming back and reading more of your blog. You had me from the minute I saw those postcards! I notice when I try to display mine that I tend to create an overwhelming, too busy look. I see the secret is your solid, clutterfree background. Now...if I can just imitate that:)
A bientot,
