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,
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
a host of designers
toasting in the New Year
with our favorite cocktails,
making our design resolutions
for the New Year,
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!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
And of course I am saving you some
blackeyes for good luck.
Have you tried the hog jowl?
