Black Eyes, A New Year's Design Party Invitation

IT'S ALMOST TIME!!!


The clock is ticking and the 
countdown has begun . . .





Vintage red and white enamel table in my sister Ellen's warehouse kitchen.
My grandmother Nanny's recipe for Grace Church pickles is in the frame.

my blackeyes are soaking, peas that is.  



My champagne is soaking, or rather chilling,
and

We are staying in tonight at my sister Ellen's new vintage warehouse retreat,
and in fact tweaking some of the decor.




So I won't be DONNING my black eyes tonight

BUT tomorrow . . .

YOU are cordially invited to join me
at my Inaugural Virtual New Year's Party

I do love a New Year's Day Party!

Yours Truly MS Design Maven
and
a host of designers
and
design bloggers


are
 toasting in the New Year
with our favorite cocktails,


making our design resolutions
for the New Year,



and
selecting our color choices for 2012

Colored sugars for rims of our cocktail glasses



And of course vintage swizzle sticks in assorted colors.
I have to say I am partial to the Holiday Inn stick, from Clarksdale of course!

We will be partying all week!

So even if you are going out
on the town tonight




You can still celebrate the New Year with us!

Stay tuned!

And
HAPPY NEW YEAR!




And of course I am saving you some
 blackeyes for good luck.



Have you tried the hog jowl?
