It's New Year's Eve Y'all!

Well, it's the end of another year in our lives! I'm looking forward to 2010...hoping that the economy in our Country will improve and that people who are without jobs will find a good place to work and make a living. I'm also hoping that all y'all will be able to achieve the resolutions and goals that you have made.

What are you doing for New Year's Eve?

Will you be staying home and watching the ball drop in Time's Square? Continuing a tradition...as a Christmas gift, my Mother-in-Law gave me another New Year's Eve Ball Snow Globe, by Waterford...my collection of these is growing! It's the Times Square Ball and plays "Auld Lang Syne." Waaaaay cute!


Will you be hosting or attending a festive event? Remember that you should never arrive at someone's home empty-handed...and y'all know by now that Miss Janice always gives her guests party favors! I still love this idea for party favors...or to take as a hostess gift...Give them a cute little gift of champagne. This is a four-pack box, filled with a split of champagne, two inexpensive champagne goblets, some party horns, black shred, and of course--black gingham ribbon!


My all-time favorite New Year's gift for the hostess or party guests...a Southern favorite New Year's Day food--Black Eyed Peas. Wrap the can in cello and attach a party blower and {gingham} ribbon...voila, you are set!


Whatever you do this evening...be safe and have a Happy New Year y'all!

I've been all over looking for black eyed peas... does this mean I am out of luck already for 2010? Gosh, I hope not!

I wish you and your family a very Happy (and safe) New Years!

Love the black-eyed peas. The next time you are in WR you must make your family take you to the restaurant that we go to every New Year's Eve, Natalia's. It's my absolute favorite!

Jeanette said...

I have enjoyed your blog for a few months now. Am loving the black eye peas. We are staying home. Happy New Year.

Happy New Year Miss Janice and to your devout followers! Discovering your blog was one of my many blessings in 09; also began collecting lady head vases as well. They are great conversation pieces as everyone remembers seeing them at their Grandmother's home, and look so lovely with fresh roses as their hat adornments. May Our Lord Bless us all with Health, Happiness and Holiness in 2010 and ever more.
